That is one of my favorite sayings currently. I just started at a new location for my job , I'm on the move. It was during this time I heard devastating news. My friend Theresa's son Sam had passed away at 14. It's been such a shock and so heartbreaking, which also followed tragic news in our community of two police officers who were killed in the line of duty.
In between this, I did do something fun. I finally saw Billy Joel in concert!! That has been on my list for like forever!
First time I went to a concert by myself, and you know what? It was awesome.
A week later my Uncle Dean passed away
Everybody wants happiness. Nobody wants pain. But you can't have a rainbow without a little rain.
As hard as it was to say goodbye to someone, so soon again. It was a good experience. Perhaps even a miraculous occasion. I spent the family luncheon afterwards with a family member that I haven't spoken to since Mom passed. It could have gone so many different ways. But I definitely felt Heavenly Fathers hand in this.
This was played at my friend Jessica's funeral a couple years ago. I'm holding on to this song. It helps.
