What constitutes a loss?
We are constantly watching Wall Street and the gas pumps, every nickel, every penny….tracking loss.
Losing your phone, losing your keys, losing your dog….
I have lost all of those.
And most anyone who is reading this will acknowledge that none of these, NONE of these prepare you for the loss of a person. A live, human, breathing, loving person. A person that you love.
How do you measure that loss? How do you get past it? There is no financial advisor, no hidden extra keys, no micro chip embedded in a lost pet, no cell phone insurance – they are gone.
A co-worker, a friend, a family member…an aunt, an uncle, a grandparent, a parent, a sister, a brother, a spouse, a child…how, do you measure that loss. How do you move on?
Day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute, second by second – breath by breath!
Please keep my family in your prayers. We have lost so much…we have lost my father to pancreatic cancer. My grandfather’s son, my mother’s husband of 40 years (almost 41 years), a sibling to my aunts, an uncle to my cousins, a friend to many more than I could name….he has gone home.
He was welcomed home by many loved ones, friends, cousins, aunts, uncles, a mother and a grandbaby.
Day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute, second by second – breath by breath.
Fortune Cookies, Bible Verses, and Prayers…many, many prayers!
