Isn't that wonderful? That phrase has just touched me. Odd how sometimes that happens. So I wanted to share.
I saw this on Bonnie's website. She was relaying the wonderful story of a family coming together to celebrate the life of its Patriarch. A sad time, and yet joyful as well because so much family came together. And it becomes a celebration. I used to be afraid of funerals or memorials. I think maybe because I was blessed to not have attended many, or needed to, until recently. And now I realize that you really can use this time to celebrate the one you are loosing, and come closer to the ones still around you. Still hard, oh so hard.
