More Questions

Did anyone close to you die?

I am so thankful to able to answer this questions with a No. I have not experienced many losses of friends and family in my lifetime, and that scares me. I know there will be a time, and I am not looking forward to it. I read lots of blogs that were created because of loss of a loved one. Some have had numerous loses. I hope this makes me more aware of future losses in my life. Because of the sudden loss of a close pastor in 2009, I think a lot about, "what if this week were my last week, would I want to be doing this, or would this irritation really even matter?".

I am fortunate that my parents are still alive, but they are in their late 70's and early 80's. I know that they don't have a lot of time left on this earth. Every Thanksgiving and Christmas, I have this little thought in the back of my head, "is this one the last one for our complete family?" The greatest gift my parents have given to me is the certainty that I know where they are going when they leave this earth. They are Christians and I know they are going to Heaven, which is way better than this life. They have lived a full life and they are prepared, but it is not something we are ready for.

On to something lighter!
