No words

How does one process two opposite emotions at the same time? Happiness.....I had my ultrasound done on my breast today. It was just a very small cyst. Nothing to worry about or do anything about. I'm driving home,  relieved, happy, enjoying the sunny drive. On the drive home get a call from DD....her fiance's sister has died. Complete heartbreak for that family. I cried all the way home. I'm still crying for them. I don't know how one gets through the loss of a child. I can't even imagine it. It is just devastating.

  1. I am so incredibly sorry - there truly are no words to make anyone feel better, just make sure they have a shoulder to cry on and an ear to listen - that is really all you can do!!!! We are dealing with all the "firsts" with dd's boyfriend of 11 years passing away in February - it is hard, hard, HARD, but with family and friends around they will get through it!!! My prayers are with your family.

    1. thank you for the kind words. Those "firsts" are always so hard. My dad died on my mom's birthday 5 years ago. It still feels like a first on each birthday, sadly.

  4. Happy to hear that your ultra sound went fine and all is well. Such terribly sad news about this young lady. I've seen many people lose a child-including my own parents who lost a 16 year old to cancer. Although time will eventually dull the initial sting, it isn't something they ever really get over. I'll keep you all in prayer.

    1. in your line of work I'm sure you have seen it. I don't think it could be something anyone really ever gets over. My aunt and uncle had a daughter die of a brain tumor when she was 5 (I was 3 at the time). My uncle never did get over it.

  9. I'm so very sorry to hear about your DD's future SIL. That has got to be so awful for her family. Already the grief must be unbearable but the SHOCK. Really, I am so very very sorry. Anna
