And in the midst of my sorrow there is some comfort. For that I am grateful.
Comfort in a sign......... and in friendship.
For years this has always been a favorite song and every time I hear it, it speaks to me and my heart. Little did I know that one day I would be listening to this song being sung at my nieces funeral by a dear family friend, as I sat there broken hearted and completely devastated.
Seeing those lyrics brings me to tears, but yet brings me some comfort.
Wanting to bring my sister an ounce of this comfort during this unimaginable time in her life, I decided to order the sign for her with plans to hand deliver it when I went to Florida last week. It just felt right wanting to be there as she opened it instead of it being delivered to her and opening it alone.
Unfortunately due to schedules, I would not get the sign I ordered in time. Terribly disappointed and upset I called a friend to talk about it and share the updates of my sign order.
It was during that conversation of healing that she also brought me comfort (she does that for me) ...... much comfort. See, this friend of mine who lives four or maybe five states away was willing to drive and meet me halfway to give me something. Something that would stop my tears from sadness and disappointment, and at the same time would create tears of joy in memory and honor . My friend has the same sign and she was was willing to give me hers.
It was an act of such love and generosity that has touched so many hearts and that will never be forgotten by me or my sister.....just like my beautiful niece.
This friend and other friends who bring me comfort when I most need it in my life.
