i am overwhelmed with sadness this morning. found out that a dear friend, my sister's brother-in-law, died suddenly last night in a farming accident. he was my age, and the loss is profound. i wish i could scoop up his wife and 3 children and make the hurt go away. the pain is so raw, i cannot even begin to imagine what they are going through.
Keep a green tree in your heart and a singing bird will come. -Chinese proverb
