As I try to make sense of the passing of a dear friend’s husband…all I can think about is the blessings we have in today’s moment. Nothing is gaurantee. Nothing. God gives and God takes. It still doesn’t anwser the whys. It still doesn’t make sense of anything. Good people go too quickly and leave the rest of us wondering why. I can’t even write a coherent thought right now. All I can do is try and continue to process and be present to my friend when she needs me.
Husband and I watched “Courageous” last night and one quote really hits home right now.
“Are you going to be angry for the time you didn’t have with [him] or are you going to be grateful for the time you did have?”
As difficult as it may be, focusing on the good times will get us through the difficult times to come.
Grateful to remember:
Him changing into jeans at his own wedding reception.
His simple, calm, almost mischievous, constant grin.
His quiet, yet confident presence.
The way he looked at and loved Kristi.
The baby that will be born a beautiful legacy to his name.
There are many more memories to be grateful for. And we are grateful.Thank you, Lord, for blessing us all with the beautiful spirit in such a humble servant as Kendrick. And just as I read posted elsewhere (I don’t remember where but it is perfect), “He is dancing in Heaven which suits him. Along with a horse and a John Deere.”
