It’s been several months since I’ve written anything here, during which time I have sadly had to say good-bye to my sister.
Nothing awakens us more than experiencing the departure of a loved one – particularly in the prime of their life and career, as was she. Nothing stops us wondering why – someone who was so loved and valued by so many, is removed from the physical world where they made such a positive impact.
But our grieving must be brief as we remind ourselves of the gifts and opportunities of that relationship, both given and received; the good times and the bad. We move forward now, knowing that our meeting and our separation is just one more part of the intriguing jigsaw of life and our own journey; a journey that eventually separates us all – merely by an illusionary mist.
