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!
