Life goes on…sorta

This is going to be a depressing entry because—well, I’m sad.

I’m sad because my sister PJ is leaving for Maine tomorrow. She has been here for a few weeks, and the three of us girls worked long and hard getting ready for a huge sale this last weekend to get rid of Mom’s “stuff.”  The sale was a financial success, but it was extremely difficult physically and emotionally. 

I’m sad because my friend Karen, who came this weekend to help with the sale, lost her brother-in-law Dan to cancer today. Karen deeply loved and admired Dan.

I’m sad because my friend Cheri’s dad died this past week, and I know the heartache she and her family are experiencing.

I’m sad because a dear family friend in Kansas is in poor health and has gone to a nursing home “for a few weeks” to get better.

I’m sad when people get sick, and I’m sad when sick people die. Even though our loved ones are no longer suffering, their absence leaves an enormous void.

Life goes on…but only “sorta.”
