Sorry that I have been missing for a couple of weeks again. An aunt that I previously eluded to decided to call hospice in. I joined her kids, grandkids, and a sister in helping take care of her during this time of transition. She had great faith. Her funeral was over the weekend and today is the burial.
Above is the mixed media piece I created inspired by the time I spend with her. Aunt P., you are going to be missed. I love you.
Complicated relationship can make explanations boring. My family and I seem to be in a season of trials and loss. A couple of weeks ago, we experienced the pain of a love one dying, which is never easy but living 750 miles made it impossible for me to visit him during his short but intense illness.
There will not be a traditional funeral service either. So, I wrote the following poem to express my grief.
Praying sorrow doesn’t dark your door any time soon,
