When Words Are Few

Good morning friends.

Yesterday, there was a loss in our family, to our friends, and in our community that has broken many hearts. While I try to figure out something, anything, to write, I find that my words are few. I wish nothing more than to console these hearts.

The name Elizabeth holds a strong meaning in my life, and in the life of the Sweetheart and his family. It is a name passed down in the Sweetheart’s family and through coincidence, the Bean and I both share this name as well. I am proud to have it as a forever reminder of the joy and grace one woman has brought to a beautiful family, and a remarkable community.

I believe through a life lived with love, acceptance, joy, and laughter, this woman has been a guide to many in the lessons of love, life and family legacy. Through this legacy, I know she will continue to help us to be wise, to find our way, and to guide us all with her own grace.

While prayer means many things to many people, to me it is a thought, a desire or a yearning for something that is yet unknown. My prayer is that you find joy today, regardless of your trials.

You are loved.
