At a loss........

I sit here and don't know which keys to press.

My older brother passed away yesterday.

It was unexpected.

It was a shock.

I know that i need to celebrate his life,

but i can't help but mourn his death.

I love him................

I can't seem to gather my thoughts,...so I will use his.


Why must there be pain?

For some of us, we are sharing a small slice of what one might call Heaven.

As others experience what could be known as hell.

For life is what we make it as we live each day.

For some may nourish from a douse of spiritual medicine on a cheery Sunday morning

as others feel discomfort in their souls.

We need to ask ourselves a question.

Without ugliness would we know beauty?

Without sorrow could one truly be happy?

Without the blessings of the higher powers spirit invested in ones soul

would we truly know the difference between right and wrong?

As we live and learn each of lives many questions, the pain will subside,

providing that our repentance be whole hearted and true,

as there may be some of us that have to learn lives lessons many times over.

A place without pain?

How beautiful Heaven must truly be.

-With love to the world

I have often times felt like I must have a guardian angel. Now I know that I do.

I was so sorry to come by and read of your brother's passing. I have experienced some very personal loss in my own life and I am happy to share with you that the old cliche', "time heals", really is true. And I agree whole-heartedly, that now, you will have a very special guardian angel. We feel ours everyday. : )
Your family will be in my prayers,

Oh, I am so sorry dearest friend, how terrible...
There is very little consolation one can offer in time like this, except the notion of the passing time itself, hoping that it might lessen the pain.
I am very sorry for your loss Holly...
