Just a note to let yall know that I ain’t quit thinkin’ and my heart ain’t quit tickin’. I recently made the comment that I wish life would get back to normal and then I found out that hectic is normal so I reckon it has. While things have been goin’ pretty good for me, that is not the case with some of the people I know.
I hope to write more about some things later but I am not to a point where I can put it all together now. Sometimes things can happen in other people’s lives that cause you to step back and look at things in a different light, especially when you care about the people who are going through a bad time.
Last week I had to choke back tears as I stood at the grave of a precious 9 year old girl who had lost her battle with cancer and read a scripture. Each of the three preachers who had a part in the service at the church also had to choke back tears. While her pastor preached the funeral message I didn’t even try to hold them back., especially as he read what her daddy wrote about his “Little Princess”.
She was braver and more courageous than anyone I have ever known and she fought it valiantly for over a year. She was just as brave all the way to the end. When you get your heart broken it really makes you put things in perspective. I think it also makes us appreciate those around us and what they are going through. While I know she is now a “Princess” in a brighter Kingdom I still feel the sadness. I plan to keep on thinkin’, maybe just a little deeper, and a little more serious.
