“And when great souls die, after a period peace blooms, slowly and always irregularly. Space fill with a kind of soothing electric vibration. Our senses, restored, never to be the same, whisper to us. They existed. We can be. Be and be better. For they existed. “
Last week was a tragedy and I felt so completely lost and confused. And upon a loss, the first week is really hectic and time seems like its moving without you. At least that’s how it was for me. At this point I can’t say that I have yet accepted the loss of my grandmother as a reality. I was going through the motions and trying to help with everything that I could last week, so much so that sleep wasn’t an option on most nights. The early mornings and late nights became my worst enemy, because it seemed as if that’s when time slowed down and I couldn’t help but think about the ceremony that I was preparing for.
I do thank God for all of the friends and family that reached out to me and have supported me throughout this process. Not, saying at all that my heartbreak is over, but you all have definitely helped with keeping me focused and trying to see the positive in this situation. Sometimes, God places people in your life at a later time and you never know what they’re there for. But, it’s in hard times that true love is displayed. I am thankful for all the love and support that was extended.
John, you are amazing in every facet of the word. It doesn’t matter the situation in my life you always step up to the plate and make things happen for me. You prove to me everyday that God hears my prayers and acknowledges my request. You were made just for me and you are the perfect piece to my crazy and discombobulated puzzle. I truly thank you for being my rock, my foundation, the head of my household, and my continuous shoulder to cry on. I love you!
Life offers tragedies that can’t be avoided, but in those times God shows up and his triumph in tragedy will leave you in AWE.
