Sitting… staring…

On Thursday, I sat down at the computer to decompress after work.  I checked FB, my blogs, and then my e-mail.

I read one e-mail in stunned disbelief.

I re-read it.

My brain said… “NO… it can’t be true.”

Then I read the second e-mail.  I read it again… and again as if maybe re-reading it would change the text.  It didn’t.  I sat there… stunned.  Tears fell.

My Pastor’s wife passed away.  She’d just been in church on Sunday with her bright smile that could light up a room.

I sat stunned at the computer and said a prayer for my Pastor.  He had been so kind and caring after John’s death.  One of those few people who really cared.  And now he’d lost his wonderful wife.

I don’t understand life sometimes.  Prayers for my Pastor.


About Mary K. Smith

I was widowed in July 2009, when I lost my beloved husband, John, to melanoma. Cancer SUCKS. We have a young son who was just a year old when his father died. I live on a small farm in Maryland which is home to horses, cats, and a dog. I started this blog as a way for me to heal, a way to remember my husband, and eventually I'd like to share it with our son so he can see the love that his father had for him, the love that we had for each other, what a great person his father was, and how hard his father fought to live.
