Grief

You know how sometimes life just likes to kick you in the teeth? 

This was one of those weeks. 

Today's the first official day of fall. I should be so excited, happy to see all the changing leaves, feel the cool breezes. 

Instead, I'm grieving the loss of two wonderful men this week. 


My sweetie's dad passed away Tuesday night. He was a ripe age, and it was his time. He was ready. We were not. He will be dearly missed. 

Wednesday night my mom's brother...my uncle...passed away, very suddenly. He was not a ripe age, and it does not feel as if it was his time....although, clearly it was. He will also be dearly missed. 

This is the third brother my mom has lost in just a few months. The third uncle I have grieved in such a short amount of time. 

It's incredible how terrible things tend to happen in threes, isn't it?


Please remember these wonderful men in your prayers.
