Tidings of comfort and joy

I was prepping for the festivities when I received news of my uncle’s passing, followed by yet another uncle a few days later. Two deaths within a week was hard to bear.

Though I know they are in a land that is fairer than day and that we shall meet again on that beautiful shore, but right now, I feel their loss. Celebrations will take a back seat.

Let not my mood dampen yours though. I wish you a joyous time with family and friends. If there’s anything this time of grief has taught me, it’s time is short and every moment we have together is a moment to cherish.
