When I think of home, I think of a place where there’s love overflowing…
For the first time in 58 years, all my sisters are Not with me. My middle sister, Lisa passed away after a valiant battle with cancer on July 31, 2014.
I cannot describe the space my mind or my heart is in. There is something tangible missing, a feeling of void, unreal and unwelcome. The pain is personal, as I knew how much my baby sis was suffering, I also knew how much I would miss her gentle yet fierce spirit.
As the most reserved of five sisters, she always stood up for her beliefs and spoke her truths – quietly. While the rest of us are boisterous, noisy bad assess, Lisa was never, ever that way. Good thing too, cause how much more could our home have taken had we all been that way?
The service was truly a home going – the one home we can all be assured of receiving. No matter how bad things are, this is the time to focus on making the life of someone ELSE better. Now is the time when we can know with deep faith that in the end, Home is where we will all be.
Thanks for reading this message. Know if you are losing or have lost a loved one, they will always be near you. Open you heart to feel their presence and your mind to acknowledge what you feel is real.
Peace and love.
