This moment was when our life was still as we liked it, unchanged, with Len….

About 30 minutes later we got the phone call that changed life as we knew it…

I never thought I would use this picture to blog about our grief journey….

Tonight I am weary and very aware of the heaviness that accompanies grief….

And I am very aware that kindness is strong enough to penetrate the heaviness of grief….

This week we were the recipients of so much kindness…

Kindness in words written….

Kindness in hugs given….

Kindness in flowers….

Kindness in tears shed….

Kindness in food delivered…..

Kindness in silence….

Kindness in presence….

Kindness in shared memories…

Kindness in so many ways…..

I can tell you there is so much mystery to what the coming weeks will hold, but one thing I know for sure…..

KINDNESS MATTERS!

Thank you one and all…..
