I am sad for your loss while Iím also relieved that her suffering is at an end.
I pray for your strength during these times
as you find yourself helping others with their grief
over their loss of their teacher, friend, sister and mother.
Itís hard to think of you not counseling and encouraging others
while you set aside some of your own grief.
May you find multiple times to grieve and reflect on the great joy
you two have shared in so many ways. From the little Iíve read on your blog
youíve given us all a glimpse at how much of a gift Jan was and still is to you.
On the lighter sideÖ
I hope you donít get sick and that your kitchen plumbing doesnít get clogged with all the broccoli cheese casseroles your neighbors and church ladies will be making for you over the next few weeks.
Another person youíve never met in real life but who has been touched by your grace.
To the rest of ya it might be a good time to revisit Patreís interview awhile back
