Last night I received a phone call from a long time friend to tell me her son was killed in a car accident. He was 31 years old.
My world hurt for her and as I rocked back and forth in sorrow, I wanted to call my children and say those last few things that needed to be said.
A quick death, like this one, makes everything surreal. The ground you walk on seems to slip away. The what ifs and should have’s may haunt you but now they are spoken quietly.
At this time, there is nothing I can offer my friend. Sometime when we are together, we will remember Eli as a baby, as a toddler and follow his progression into adulthood. For now, my friend needs time to grieve.
Hugs are sent on angel wings and my love surrounds her.
Maybe just for today:
We live as if there is no tomorrow.
We connect with that person we love.
We say those precious words.
We give hugs.
We ask for hugs.
We live with joy and integrity.
We skip the mundane and focus on the beauty.
We are totally and completely present.
We leave happiness in our wake.
With love to you and yours …. ~Margekatherine~
