Yesterday slips into memory as I ponder life, wondering about the future. A colleague just lost her husband of 38 years. I can only imagine the pain. I think of her as she deals with the grief and all the demands made on survivors when one life ceases.
She is in a new school teaching a new grade. Lots of new people that are still working separately, who have not integrated as a team. The support system of colleagues still developing.
I read this phrase recently "what all of us need: not easy answers to difficult questions but someone willing to share the pain of the struggle". This phrase really resonated in my soul.
This morning I stood in our front yard wrestling with current life struggles. The morning light begins to break. This statement rings true for me, as I reflect on my life.
