Just got back from our family get together in Cary, as I was surrounded by kids and grandkids. It's been a day of mixed emotions. I am just riding the wave. But it sure helps when your family loves on you. While I had some difficult moments, there weren't many of them. Through no power of my own, I feel myself walking in a meadow blooming with flowers, then lying down beside it on a grassy bank. There is a God, and he is good. And he feels compassion toward me! A quiet sense of adventure is replacing the terror of grief.
Loss is the perfect place to find God.
A huge "thank you" to those who wrote me to say they were praying for me and the family today. Your words of support meant the world to me.
And to Becky Lynn:
I LOVE YOU.
