Monday

 I wanted to thank everyone for their kind thoughts and comments here and on facebook.
I will be back to posting about pottery soon.
Meanwhile I have a few family issues that still take front stage.
Below is something Judy Shreve sent to me and I wanted to share.
 
 
A ship sails and I stand watching till she fades on the horizon and someone at my side says 'she is gone.'
Gone where? Gone from my sight that is all;
she is just as large as when I saw her. The diminished size and total loss of sight is in me, not in her, 
and just at the moment when someone says, 'she is gone,' 
there are others who are watching her coming, and other voices take up a glad shout, 
''There she comes!'
And that is dying.

Loved all those old photo's of your brother and family. So sorry to hear that he has left you all but I'm sure you are thankful to not have him suffer any longer. Death is so hard to watch. I'm not sure if its worse on the person who is dieing or those who are watching the person they love change and suffer.
Hope you are at peace, taking time to reflect and enjoying all those wonderful memory.
Enjoy the sunshine, take a few walks and enjoy your thoughts with a few deep breaths.
Peace-Jen
