Together IS better
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

I've grappled with finding words of comfort for you Linda, words of empathy. At the very least, words of encouragement and understanding. The words are there, but hiding, for today—tonight especially—grief has stricken me. Grief and loss and tears; a place I've had to visit many times in my almost 5 decades. Tonight I go to bed to dream of what WAS, so that when I awaken tomorrow, I'll appreciate all the more what IS. The fact that my husband is and will be beside me is so very comforting. I sigh with relief at that comfort. Together truly is better.

Thank you for sharing, Linda.
