news of 3 deaths and a baby’s serious illness greeted us today…alongside rejoicing of a new baby born yesterday. this life is so fleeting…nearly transparent. on our way out to school this morning, the wall showed me some of what i have…and i am grateful.
added later: i feel pulled to comment that this loss is not ours as much as that of others. this loss is one we simply know of, one we are thinking of, one we are sending fierce prayers for, one we are holding knowing so many are in pain.
so remember these families spread across the miles as we are.
