downs and ups

ltMy father-in-law passed away this week. Although my husband and his family are grieving, there is some solace in that he declined rather quickly and did not suffer for an extended time. They have had a lot to deal with lately, as my mother-in-law is also very ill. However, they have banded together and handled everything so far.

On the other hand, my brother-in-law just got engaged, my stepdaughter has almost completed nursing school and our first anniversary is approaching. My husband’s birthday is also tomorrow but, with everything going on, it will probably be very low-key.

I guess what I am trying to say is that sometimes it seems like there is too much sorrow to handle. However, if we look beyond the immediate, better times are on the way. We just have to hold out and wait for them.
