Hello and Goodbye

It was my hubby's birthday on Saturday, and we had a (pizza) party to celebrate. It was a bittersweet day though, because my aunt had died that morning. So we were celebrating the continuation of one life and mourning the end of another.

Ironically, today was my mom in law's birthday and also my aunt's funeral. So I was once again celebrating the continuation of one life and mourning the end of another. I watched my cousins, only a little older than me, who are now without their mother, and I wondered, what if?

I am so grateful my parents are still with me, and I am so grateful for all those whom I love and who love me. I hope I can remember this all the time, not just on a day like today.

Au revoir, Marion. God keep you, and may the next time be easier.

Oh Nadine, my sincere apologies for not reading this sooner. Family are so important and I'm glad you had them around you.
