Don’t get me wrong: I feel pain. We all do.
But it’s nothing to what my sister-in-law and his daughters feel.
So I am posting this merely to ask for your prayers in a special way in the coming days. It has been a rough holiday season, I know, though they haven’t mentioned it. And after a year, the pain is different but still very, very there.
And we remember that.
I’ve learned a lot about my late brother-in-law in the last year. My respect and regard for him have grown. And, for some reason, I feel quite a bit of regret about that, that I didn’t take time, make time, have time in the 38 years he was with us to explore him further.
Mary, Mother of Sorrows, be a mother to us now.
