Spring Break 09 – Part 6 Farewell


Spring Break 09 – Part 6 Farewell

Parting was hard. When I kissed and hugged my brother, I honestly didn’t know if that was the last time or not I’d be holding his warm body in my embrace. That hurt – yet the look in his eyes to mine told me things that words cannot express – it was our good-bye. Brief, quick, but speaking volumes. Since his January brain surgery – he is probably at his best right now and that was good for us. His left hand still doesn’t cooperate and needs massaging a lot. His spirit is so amazing. His faith so strong. He is so childlike now at times; that it reminds me how we come into this world is often the way we leave. Their marriage is a prime example of commitment, trust, respect and true love. We will cherish the memories and moments filled with laughter. If you can’t laugh – you’ll cry – I’ve done both this week.

I am sorry you and your family is experiencing this. I often wonder how someone can get through something like this when they do not have the One to lean on.
I am happy you got to spend some good quality time with him. Maybe God will give you more time.
