Just some thoughts....


A lady friend from church passed away last night.  She fell down the stairs and had brain injuries that couldn't be repaired.  So sad.  I just saw her at church a week ago.  I looked around the church and we spotted each other and waved.  I noticed she had colored her hair and wanted to tell her I liked it.  That will be my last memory of her.  I have known her for a long time through The Ladies Auxiliary and our husbands knew each other.  We weren't real close or anything....but it was such a shock to hear she passed.  She was probably close to my age, with small grandchildren like ours.  So many people will miss her presence.  She was really nice and very humble.  It really has me reflecting today about how life can just be... gone... that quickly.  I see patients at the hospital every Tuesday when I take Communion to them...and some have been there for months.    It is sad to see them linger and suffer or not be aware of where they are or who they are.  Occasionally I will visit someone who does not speak English.  I can only hold up the Body of Christ to show them why I am there.  We nod and understand each other in that way.  I don't get real sad very often anymore...but for some reason I do feel really sad today...........
