Speaking of death.........

While visiting my sweet friend,Marilyn,yesterday, she told me about a touching and comforting message that she had recently heard. When I got home last night, I was grumpy,tired and kinda discouraged because Marilyn is getting sick again-my house is upside down- I have no energy- and generally speaking I just can't get it together!!!!!
I sat down to check my email and remembered the link to that message Marilyn had sent.
It was late-  she warned me it was moving so I decided to listen while I was alone.

All I can say is that the things I was undone about didn't change- but the way I saw them sure did.
I'm putting a link here for you to see this message too.
Rachel- the young woman speaking took my breath away right from the beginning.
Young ,beautiful, successful - wife and mother of two little ones-and battling cancer.  She informed the audience that just that day she had gotten news that she was not going to recover. Furthermore she had just a short time- very short- before she would leave her family to mourn her loss.
 Please take the time to listen(when you have 30-40 min)
It was heart-wrenching but oh so encouraging!!!!!!!
What a courageous woman!

So sorry to hear about your dear friend, Autumn!!

It's been too long since I've checked in. We had a sudden and tragic death in our family four days before Christmas. It is so difficult to lose someone.

Oh Autumn, I am so sorry for you and your friend. I have a dear friend going through this as well. One year is ok and then we are back in it again full force. My prayers are with you all.

Thanks everyone-

Just to be clear- the woman in the video(Rachel) passed away in June. I didn't have the pleasure of knowing her myself- but I thought her words were sooo powerful that they must be shared!
Marilyn is a little improved today- YAY!!!!! At least no hospital yet!

I understood and glad she is feeling better.

That Rachel was very brave and it was very powerful wow the faith she had. Of course I cried but took away so much from that video. It was beautiful!!

Thanks for passing addy on Autumn.
