Aww, Sue, I'm so very sorry for your loss. That's a tough one. There are never any words that are the right words, especially when it comes to someone that you're very close to. When you work with someone everyday they really become special. Sometimes we see our work mates more than our family and it's a hard thing to lose one. She was so young. I wish I could think of something to make it better, but I can't .. just know I'm thinking of you and I'm very sorry.
Warm gentle hugs,
Sue, I'm so sorry about your supervisor. You are right. Life is short and you never know what the future holds. She is in a good place now, free from illness.
Here is something that I like to pass out when there is a passing.
I am standing upon the seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength and I stand and watch her until, at length, she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come down to mingle with each other. Then, someone at my side says, "There! She's gone."
Gone where? Gone from my sight...that is all. She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left my side, and just as able to bear her load of living freight to the place of destination. Her diminished size is in me, not in her; and just at the moment when someone at my side says, "There! She's gone," there are other eyes watching her coming and other voices ready to take up the glad shout, "There she comes!"
Sherrine..........that was beautiful!!!!!!!! Thank you.
Patti and Tyno, thanks for your kind words. K9, thank you also, your words are all so comforting.
Life doesnt seem fair sometimes, just dont understand it. But its not for us to figure it out, I guess.
Think I am going to take a few days off here. Just need time, and since husband and son are out of town, will be a good time for me to reflect back to November, when my brother died. No, I wont have a pity party, but I need to remember the times I had with him, my best friends husband who died in Jan, and now Kimmy.
You all take care of yourselves.
Love and Hugs
Sorry to hear about your supervisor Sue- you have had plenty of sadness in your life these past months. That is a good thing to take some time and "grieve"- I remember the first year after my mom passed away I was so busy working fulltime, and raising two boys alone as my second marriage was coming to an end, I did not have the time to grieve. It caught up to me and I feel the grieving process lasted longer because of it. Your in my thoughts-
