From a wedding to a funeral
Last week I shared with you the joy of my daughter’s Victorian style wedding. On Monday the husband of a lifelong friend died, after she had cared for him at home, very courageously. On Thursday we attended a moving ceremony, and said our goodbyes. So much can change in a week.
All week long I’ve been wondering if I should share these six words, which have played again and again in my head. Yesterday evening I spent some time looking at my daughter’s photos of her Venice honeymoon. When “we girls” were together after the funeral we talked about “old times”, as we always do. And, of course, the subject of Lisa and the wedding was raised. She sometimes lay in her carry-cot at the “Girl’s Nights” we held in each other’s homes back then. We still do, though the children are long grown. I felt that I needed to share these six words this week, and to share with them a couple of her beautiful photographs.
Life is short. Love while you can.
