The Author's Voice May 2011

The month of May is a tough one for me, perhaps that is why I wait until the very last day to write.  This month is a fresh reminder of grief.  A few years ago I lost a very dear friend to a mysterious and sudden illness in May.  And recently a friend of mine lost her son, a young boy, a soldier in the war in Afghanistan and Iraq.  Then just a few weeks ago another friend lost her husband of 45 years, within a few weeks of illness, he was gone.  So this month has definitely been a reminder of reflection and the painful reality of mortality.  With that being said I am very aware that life is meant to be lived and lived abundantly!  But I must indeed admit that I am thankful to be heading toward the month of June.... Peace to all you bloggers who continue to follow faithfully.  You bring great joy! 


(In loving memory of Debbi Tepper, Joey Dimock and the soldiers of 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, U.S. Army, and Joe Watts, R.I.P.)
