Death in the Family

Oh, it hits out of nowhere, doesn't it?

Like a sucker punch to the gut.

Don't worry about me, it is not one of my kids or anyone too terribly close.

But a relative.

And I need to go to Iowa.

And I don't know how right now.

This is hard.

Please don't pick on me anymore today.

I'm sorry. Death does come at times least expected, although it is hard even when we know.

Sucker punches are no fun. I'm sorry for your loss.

At least we both know you can handle it. Sorry for your loss.

Pam said...

I hope no one is picking on you, cuz you know I'd have to do something about that.
Oh sweet Mary, I'm sorry about the loss of a family memeber....this means you're going to have a hard few days ahead doesn't it?
Get back with us when you can.

Stay close to your Higher Power. You can't go wrong that way.

What a difficult January you are having. I wish I lived closer and could make some chicken soup and dewax your tablecloth, give you some practical support.

Go gently Mary Christine and take care of yourself as you travel.

Thinking of you, Mary. God give you strength.

I am so sorry MC, I'll be praying for you and your family... You'll get it figured out and do what you need to do, we always do, with the help of family, friends and God.
