what a day...

it started out like any other day...
except that after 5 1/2 years...
my youngest is finished with classes...
and he woke to the most wonderful bad hair day anyone could ever want...
see ladies, sometimes, bald would be better...
then, I hopped on FB and found out that my uncle had gone home this morning...
they had been trying to call me...
the phone was unplugged...
dear hunny must have done it this morning...
long story there for later...
the next half hour I cried...
prayed...
posted...
because I know you have my back...
and that you pray...
and you understand...
even the animals understood the mood earlier...
and then the family started connecting...
phone calls, facebook...
and friends found out and they popped in and out of my life today...
briefly, letting me know that they are there...
and I thought about all the ones who were there to meet Uncle Jimmy this morning...
all the others who have made their crossing...
and how happy they are at being together again...
and in time, we will all follow...
and we will leave those on this side...
but it's not for long...
and that we never know our time...
if it happened right now...
did you leave anything unsaid?...
not finished...
do they know what you mean to them?...
do they know how to follow you?...
so this afternoon...
Craig, Tia and I redid the living room...
I had a need to down size a bit...
to unclutter...
and we spent the time together...
laughing and being silly...
knowing that this afternoon will never happen again...
so, leaving nothing left unsaid...
I love you guys...
you are such a major part of my life...
and your words mean so much...
and you make everyday for me easier to face...
and we are so going to PARTY when we all get to the other side...
Merry Christmas and God bless you for being so supportive and caring...
Thank  you for all the comments...
but mostly for the prayers...

Oh Tete, you are such a sweet lady with wonderful, moving words. I’m sorry for your loss but how exciting it is to think about him reuniting with old friends and family today too. I thought of that the day my dad died and often since then. I just know it was a party and your uncle is having one too. As always, your decorations are beautiful and I hope they bring you comfort and uplift your spirits :)

We all have cried those tears of loss and I'm so thankful for the time when He wipes all our tears and we feel confident that our loss was heavens gain. You and yours are in my prayers.
