Today I attended a funeral. It was a highly emotional day and I wasn’t prepared for all the grief I’d feel. There was music and singing; true celebration of life. And as I sat at the service in reflection, I thought of loved ones that have passed; reliving the same grief I felt at my own Nanay Lidia’s funeral. The sun shined bright in our eyes and warmed the congregation within. Then someone opened a door to the left of the church and a swift breeze swept through the Church, blowing cool air in. I cried.
I’m so happy this break is giving me time to grieve and spend some time with friends.
