Out of sorts


I had another post planned for today, but I can't post it right now. I'm feeling out of sorts, emotional and I need to spend the day catching up, being creative and let myself be emotional.

My uncle who I knew quite well passed away this morning. And I'm all over the place today. I'm glad that he and my aunty came to Australia from the US last year so I was able to see them again.

He used to have cancer in his oesophagus but he was completely healed from that. But he got cancer in the liver and lymph nodes which he only found out a few weeks ago? The doctor gave him a week to live. The only good that comes out of it is that he was a born again Christian and I know that he is in heaven right now and I will see him again one day.

This just makes me think about my family and friends and how much I just want to hug them all and be so grateful that I can. I will not take them for granted and love every minute I can spend with them.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I'm so sorry for your loss, Gracie. It's good that you got to see your uncle fairly recently and can enjoy those memories of him.

Thinking of you and hoping your day is just what you need... a chance to create and feel as emotional as you want to. Crying is therapeutic, so let it all out, sweetie.

xoxo

Death isn't easy, but as you said you have your family and friend and you should show how you love them every day, I'm sure you will feel much happier.

A kiss,
Joana

Belen said...

Gracie, I couldn't agree with you more. right now, I'm feeling the same way. I've been in some strange emotionally charge state, and I want to cry and cry and cry. But a part of me doesn't know what to cry about and why I want to. I just feel I need it.

Hugs, my lovely Gracie,
Belen

oh no Gracie ((hugs)) to you sweet girl - my thoughts are with you and your family and your aunt who must be so sad right now!! he is at peace now, no suffering and no pain, a safe place!

Oh, Gracie, I'm so sorry to hear about your uncle. My deepest condolences to you and your family. I do hope that you're feeling much better today, and indeed, praise God that your uncle was born again! "For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain." Philippians 1:21. All we can hope for is to see our Maker again, and so we can take joy in knowing that your uncle is back with his Creator and living an amazing life of eternal joy. (:

Even so, it is still painful to lose a loved one, and I do hope that God's peace will be upon you, your relatives and family throughout this time of grieving. Take care, dearest! You are sooo loved! *big, squishy huggs*
