I’ve spent the past week down in Florida. My step after died after a fast and furious three month battle with colon cancer. He and my mom were together for 47 years! I also came down to say goodbye to my 91 year old adopted father who has been Ill with a heart issue. More than likely I will not see him again.
Both of these men walked me down the aisle on my wedding day, both played important roles in my life.
“New Beginnings are often disguised as painful endings.”
― Lao Tzu
Through this process of death, of endings, I’ve gained a much clearer perspective on what’s truly important. Love, family, connection.
I will write more about this experience when I return home I’m sure. We truly are all connected.
