Sunday I went to a Memorial Service for the brother of a friend of mine. I did not know him well, but I am so fond of his sister and I simply ached for her.
His mother was there, and the expression on her face told me that she is in shock and not feeling too much, other than overwhelming grief. I ached for her too.
I sat trying to talk to people and not being very successful. It brought it all back to me, losing Katie, losing my brother to cancer, and all the emotions that go along.
It made me wish I could talk to my Mom and she is gone too.
I sort of feel that I am in a transition time. Going from being the grown child, to now being an elder member of our family.
But to everything…there is a season.
