I need to write from my heart today.
Last spring, cancer took my grandmother. Last fall, it took my other grandmother. Last night, it took my friend.
I wrote this as I lay awake in the darkness early this morning. I didn’t write it to win sympathy from anyone. I wrote it as a promise to them.
I wrote itfor one and all of them. My wishis that anyone struggling this season will read it and find some comfort.
I will not remember your pain, because your strength was so much greater.
I will not forget your kindness, even as the world shows how unkind it can be.
I will not worry about someone’s opinion, because it has no bearing on my legacy.
I will not judge, because I don’t know anyone’s whole story.
I will not squander what I’m given, because you showed me what’s important.
