Feeling Saddened For Another's Loss..

Sunday, September 06, 2009

My best friend lost her sister after a long and brave battle with cancer. I am hurting for the family..husband, kids, siblings, and her parents. No parent should ever have a child predecease them...it is literally the worst the worst thing that can happen to a human being, ever. Everyone copes with death in their own way, but I will say one thing...the word "closure" is misbegotten and overused. That is only one woman's opinion, it may be an entirely different term to the next person. My mother said her "closure" will come when she sees my brother and father in heaven....when it is her time to see them....please God not for a very, very, very, very...long and never occuring (the child in me) amount of time!

Cycles come and go as do the years. I know that death is an intimate part of life...and it transcends physical being. The spirit is eternal and cannot be taken by death. Just like the memories in your mind and heart. Tell everyone you love what they mean to you!

Food wise I am just a wreck. I know what I am doing and I am slowly coming around again. I am glad for the awareness and am eager to stop wasting my time in this life. My little brother!! RIP sweetpea..until we dance again!

    My thoughts are w/you. It's never easy. When I was 14 -15 I went to 12 funerals in those 2 years. I had a longstanding fear that it was just a matter of time til I lost more people. It is hard. Allow yourself to go through the process.. just remember to take care of yourself.
