Need some prayers

Saturday, May 15, 2010

I just got back from a week in Orlando for a conference. Had a great time: my presentation went well, made lots of new contacts/friends, ate some really good food (and the proof is already on my hips).

The third day into the conference I got a call nobody wants: my brother's wife had died. She was in her late 30s but she's had a lot of health issues over the years. We weren't close but she's my only brother's wife and the mother of my very young nieces.

I always travel with my rosary beads but not a Bible since hotel rooms usually have a Bible (to my Catholic friends: yes, I know I should carry a Catholic Bible). Anyway, I flipped through the available Bible and found Romans 8:26. I'm a very sensitive and emotional person and this verse helped me get through the rest of my conference and get me home without falling apart.

    I'm so sorry to read this very sad news. I'm really sorry I didn't read this sooner.

    May your faith be a comfort to you and your brother.

    There are no words, but please know that you are in my thoughts and I do know how hard it is to go through this.

    Message me if you want to talk.

    So sorry for your loss. A loss like this is always very difficult no matter what the circumstances. It's hard for children of any age to lose a parent.
