One year

Last July was a rough one. I spent most of it waiting for the inevitable. Visiting the oncology unit and watching my neighbor dying of breast cancer. She dies the day before my birthday. Today. She has been heavily on my mind lately, as I have thought of all the things she has missed over the last year. Her kids have grown and changed so much, I know she would be proud.

“We cannot mingle with the splendors we see. But all the leaves of the New Testament are rustling with the rumor that it will not always be so . . . The door on which we have been knocking all our lives will open at last.” - C S Lewis
