Lessons in Loving


Today was an emotional one for me. A dear friend of mine lost her son in a tragic accident. The memorial service was today. I haven't been struck by such an overwhelming sense of love and faith in a very long time. This strong, beautiful family came together in their saddest hour to honor the life of their brother and son and I feel taught everyone there a lesson in loving their strength and devotion to one an other will stay with me for sometime ~ I think. Only 22 years old but, what a shining example of a life well lived. You'll be missed Russ.

That was lovely, as is the picture. At least something nice came out of the tragedy - lessons learned, faith shared. Nice.

That was lovely P and I'm sorry I missed the memorial but I don't think I could have handled it well since it's only been two months since my mom has passed. Glad you came out of it with a such huge lesson in love and devotion. ♥

It was a beautiful service and I'm still in awe of how strong our dear friend is, she really is "the rock," that was obvious.

No doubt this will stay with me for a long time too.
