Cycle of life . . .

I have heard about too many deaths this year, and it is only May.  Those who died have been family members of friends, or friends of friends, but I still hear their grief . . . I witness their sorrow . . . I empathize with their loss.  I know it is part of the cycle of life, and in most cases it has been a relief for those who have passed, but it can still be difficult for those left behind.

So when I get a chance to celebrate the hopeful things of life, I do.  I love it when a coworker brings in her baby . . . . he laughs and chortles, and it makes me grin.  Today I was able to be present for a friend’s wedding, and that made me happy, too.  I think that is one of the reasons so many people were fascinated by the recent royal wedding in England; weddings are so hopeful.  We know the statistics, but right now — at this moment — there is hope.      🙂
