Infinite Spirit

Those of us who are of a certain age, our children grown, with children of their own, wake to find another dear friend gone, and it doesn’t take an Einstein or Thoreau to realize that the loss you suffered when she cast away her human form, is universal to all who mourn and we must rise above our own distress and comfort those whose wounds are fresh.

To all the loved ones of those no longer at our side, please hold each other in a fierce embrace and wail and cry and raise your fist against the sky and then with griefs sweet release think deep and hard about the gifts our loved ones gave to us and nurture their wondrous legacy, and add its riches to the treasure chests where we keep the mirror of whom we hoped we’d grow to be and like Nobel remake our destiny for those who will remember thee.

And if we pass this tradition on, the wisdom and the joy of those no longer here will be present in those that we hold dear and on and on their spirit will be carried through the march of time into infinity.

  1. our daughter was dealing with cancer at the same time as norma my grandson’s are still experiencing the “after effects” of susie’s experience in particular, my older “boo boo” Noah he constantly asks me about dying – “you are old – are you going to die soon” it goes on and on and i reply “everything that lives dies – we just never knowwhen…….lifetimes are different ……. butterflies can live for a few days or afew years, some things live longer than others.  cats, dogs, birds live for8 years or 23 years, we never know how long anything lives but i will never leave you if you remember me.   all you have to do is look at the stars in the sky and remember our fun timesand our sillyitis.” the beat of life never stops and so i share this with you as a thank you forall of the helpful things that you have written….. ON ANGELS AND MESSENGERS Each lifetime is the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.For some there are more pieces.For others the puzzle is more difficult to assemble. Some seem to be born with a nearly completed puzzle.And so it goes.Souls going this way and thatTrying to assemble the myriad parts. But know this.   No one has within themselvesAll the pieces to their puzzle.Like before the days when they used to sealjigsaw puzzles in cellophane.  Insuring thatAll the pieces were there. Everyone carries with them at least one and probablyMany pieces to someone else’s puzzle.Sometimes they know it.Sometimes they don’t. And when you present your pieceWhich is worthless to you,To another, whether you know it or not,Whether they know it or not,You are a messenger from the Most High Rabbi Lawrence KushnerHoney From The Rock                Wishing you a thanksgiving full of guilt free laughter and joy with your family. thanks for all that you did in the support group – it helped my daughter’s honey Mattand your writings have been very helpful as well. hugs barb & rich kreisbergsusie & matt browarsky
