A Friend died today
Thursday, August 11, 2011
My heart is heavy and I'm know I"m not the first to lose a friend, but I lost someone that was more like a mother and grandmother to my son. No we have no blood relation- but sometimes blood is not all that binds the ones we love. I expected death of my Father when he died, and I knew he was no longer in a earthly body racked with cancers and the pain he suffered from them..
This was sudden unexpected, one day here - next day gone. No warning, no notice
we shared the ole diet coke and laughed together. Now she is gone.. My son is taking it really hard and the service is five hours away.. tomorrow.. (They believe in being buried within 24 hrs of earthly death)
I know she is in a beautiful place and she loved Christ - but my tears flow. If you haven't told the one you love today.. don't wait. tell them now.. don't put the computer before the one that is in the next room or on the nearby chair or couch. You never know when the time is done, so make sure you tell the one you love..
