"Blessed Are..."

It was just about a year ago when my friend Karen passed away. It’s amazing how quickly time passes – cliche, but very true. It truly does not seem like 12 months have gone by, and yet they have.

I spent a big chunk of today in the ER – her widower called me and asked me to take him there. He’s been rundown from bronchitis, and I was very worried about the state of his health earlier this week. Fortunately, they were able to help him in the ER, and he didn’t need to be admitted to the hospital.

I’ve been in a really contemplative mood these days... I know so many people who have lost friends and relatives over the past year. And some have gone quite suddenly, like Karen.
