I've been an orphan for two weeks now. I realize that's an odd way to express it, especially at my age, that is the reality. Two weeks ago, at 4:14 am, the world as I knew it altered forever.
These past two weeks have been filled with a lot of sadness, but also some small surprises. Maybe, because there is so much heaviness in my life right now, I am savoring the small bits all that much more.
Just a small surprise in the midst of dark days.
(And while I'm talking about dark days, I have a friend who is experiencing some huge issues with his business and another whose mother has just been diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer. So to those who find and read this blog, a few prayers, good thoughts and positive energy sent their way would be most welcome.)
