This has been a sad & rough week for me emotionally. My aunt passed away and it was so unexpected. It shook our family. For those who don't know I was basically raised by all 6 of my aunts in some capacity. Having one of them leave here eternally was something I hadn't experienced yet, since the tragic death of my mother. And signaled for me a reality that I have been avoiding....the 'what happens when so & so.....' thoughts.
Going to the funeral this weekend provided good closure for me (it was a sad celebration...if that makes any sense?) and a mini family reunion you wish never had to happen under those circumstances.
Everyone be blessed and go tell the ones you love, just how much you really do love them - no matter how hard it could be or what may be going on. For our time here is only as long as a blink of an eye.
