In Gratitude

John 3:15

King James Version (KJV)
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish,
 but have eternal life.
One of our childhood friends suffered
the passing of her brother
yesterday.  It's never anyone awful
passing too soon or unexpectedly.
It's always the sweethearts
who probably felt too much, worked
too hard and died with their feelings buried
deep in their souls as not to burden others.

Uncle Joe and I always sit in awe of the families where both
parents and all the siblings are still alive.  Maybe it's because
we sustained  losses of a parent and a sibling too soon.
We are older and wiser and know the blessing of siblings
and parents. 

We understand the loss and
mourn, not only this special man, but for his family,

Today, find gratitude for all the small things.
Call your mom and dad.
Mend fences with your siblings.
Tell them you love them.
