Until Next Time

I'm not sure if anyone has noticed, but my posts this month have dealt often with death.  That's because it is everywhere I turn these days.  Death isn't a bad thing, but it is a very sad thing.  It's a happy thing though too, because all those sweet loved ones are whole, healthy and happy again.
It's so hard to accept that they're gone though.  No more phone conversations, no more hugs and I Love Yous, you've had the last laugh, shared a last memory.

Until Next Time

Michael, Karen, Jack, Fred, William, Sara and soon sweet TJ as well.  Oh, I'm sure there's so many more, these are the only ones that I either know or know of.  I have a feeling I even forgot someone.
It's so overwhelming, so emotionally draining, so sad and such a reality check.  I just keep remembering these three words...Until Next Time...it does bring a bit of peace.

Until Next Time

When I see you again, healthy and whole, happy and carefree.  I know that you'll be watching over us, your loved ones and enjoying the beautiful company of our Father and Jesus.  I know that you're smiling, laughing and loving, having been reunited with your family and friends that I never even knew.  I know that some day there will come a time when I (and everyone else) will get to see your smiling face again.  That we will feel those arms around us in a loving hug and feel a sweet kiss on our face.  I know that you are with the ultimate caretaker and lover, the one that cares for us through everything and loves us exactly as we are.  He is the one that gave me you and for that I will be eternally grateful.

So, Until Next Time, I Love You!!
