How can July, the bright and the warm month, be so hard to bear? It's been sad for me with the death of a friend and with the two year anniversary of my son's death. The same flowers that cheered Jeff two years ago, outside his hospice window, bloomed again in July as if to say to me, "We're back."
There are so many different kinds of lilies. I noticed how tall they stand, even the short ones. They were not going to bend. Finally, I whispered to them, "I won't die from it." I went into the house and got my notebook and began writing their descriptions and studying to learn their names. Today I woke not sad anymore.
