And just like that, it is December.
I have been sad this week: one friend died after a long battle with cancer. Another died unexpectedly while on vacation overseas.. Although neither are bosom buddies, I have shared time & space with both and their departures have wrenched at my being.
As I close this month with a Thanksgiving celebration with friends & family, I give thanks through tears and a heavy heart that I have the gift of health and time with loved ones. For each minute and each hand I hold, I am grateful.
As always in these times, music and the written word provide some comfort: Time Problem by Brenda Hillman speaks some peace to me, as does this classic by Simon & Garfunkel, given a new sound by Pentatonix.
