I was invited to work with a group of Amy's closest friends and her family today to prep greens and make wreaths for Amy's Celebration of life ceremony tomorrow . I will have a photo of it later (I hope).
In my life so far, I have been incredibly lucky to meet incredibly generous people with equally generous families. I am grateful for these people and their open-armed welcome. Sometimes, I stand at the periphery like a kid outside of the pet store, not knowing if I should enter - fearful of getting too attached. They have none of it - I am pulled in and always happy for it.
Dark days are made easier when there is a little laughter blended in with the tears. We have definitely had that.
