Grace in Small Things - Day 156 Farewell Dear Friend

This was another warm beautiful sunny day today. A day of goodbyes, so long and a day to remember. A day to be thankful for friends, family, and grace. Grace to experience another day of living and to embrace others.

Meeting my daughter for the trip to send off my friend. It was quite comforting to have her with me.

The outpouring of love and sadness for what we will miss and what we have lost. The chapel overflowed with people, tears, laughter and thankfulness.

Gathering of friends and acknowledgement of magnanimous heart.

Refocus, regroup, reflection, stillness.

I thank you my Gist community for your prayers and your love. You have given me strength. Your friendship means so much.
