My friend Lynn passed away last week after a four year struggle with hard-core invasive breast cancer. Having seen the effects of that disease up close and way too damn personal, it terrifies me. I don’t know that I’d be able to get through it. Seriously. I don’t. How people go through what they do amazes and scares me at the same time.
Gal’s mom recently passed away and rather suddenly, too. I gasped audibly when I read the words on my screen. If it caught me out of the blue, I can only imagine how Gal felt. (HUGGNG GAL TIGHT)
At least with my mom, I knew that time was coming and was able to make peace with her in her last days. Same with Lauren although there was no peace needed – we bathed in love and joy and each other’s company. Knowing that the end of our days together here on earth were imminent was truly a gift. I can’t say that it made the grieving easier since it took me probably about three years of sadness over losing Lauren to come to accept her absence in my life. But it was a blessing nonetheless.
Just feels to me like peeps are leaving at a really fast pace. Not sure why that is other than big shifts are here, more are coming and maybe their soul agreements were about not participating in it. Who knows?
Anyway, I’m still here. Off and on. Trying for more on than off, mmmkay?
