Family

Yesterday was a day shared with family. It was a day of saying goodbye to Tom's uncle Bernard Moser... A beautiful mass was preformed by Father Ed... another family member...keeping memories alive and sharing emotions and relationships with family relating and expressing the joys and also the down falls of the family has endured.... The good and the bad memories were equally shared...
Nobody can travel back and start at the beginning but it is possible to make a " New Ending"... We can offer reflections of wisdom however....
Family, feelings, and lessons help us as we travel through our journey of life...
To have family to surround you is very unfortunately no shared by all.... Family is truly a shared and treasured gift and thank you Lord we have been fortunate to have been able to share in this... Without the grieving you can find no comfort... and only when we allow ourselves to feel the grieving we can begin to heal.... Loss is unavoidable and a part of the cycle of life itself.... Sharing it with family is a gift..
Ps. experience life and reach out to a loved family member today if it be just with a phone call or email.....

Tomorrow Tom and I and several family members will travel to Toledo, Ohio to attend the Sisters of Notre Dame Fall Festival... Always a lovely dinner and entertainment ..... Again we will get to share more time with family.......

Marietta,

I'm so sorry for your loss. It is so true that often we don't appreciate family ties until we experience the losses of loved ones. How true it is to cherish the times we have together and reach out to each other while we can.
