Another Facebook friend from my childhood times recently posted that she was sad, having a hard time. Again, ding...dong ding.... goes the little meter on your bedside table, as those that read your note, like me, have you come to mind. I hope you can feel it somehow.
There is my donor family who I adore from afar as they get married and have children, and as they randomly express how much they love and miss the brother they lost suddenly a few years ago. This angel uncle is expecting a niece, and he has the most precious nephew. I love seeing the strength in these sisters and their parents, their resilience, as they move forward hopefully, always remembering though, the darling brother /son. May they know that when they post a sad moment or a memory, how busy their love meter becomes.
Life has loss and sadness built right into it, it is why it is so precious, so sweet. If it was not for that we would never be able to feel the happy times. We will all face loss and we are all connected and please know that whatever you might be feeling, no matter how alone, you too have a meter somewhere in your house that would certainly be playing or ticking with thoughts of love and wishes of strength for you; if we knew what you were facing. We are all in this together.
