Friday flash 55 #32 (not enough words)


weight of glory


cherub face

sweet hands

warm, cleansing water

soft, white blanket

printed feet

tiny pink shoes

swollen tears


echoing cries

basket of flowers

bells ringing

tasteless food

silent rocking chair

    You have beautifully summarized the emotions of the day (week/month/year) that these parents and their friends and families are going through. So very sorry to hear of this loss.

    …”silent rocking chair”… Three little words but they say so much.

    Hang on to your faith for strength…it will lessen the heartache…little by little.

    Of course it’s all you can think about. What a miserable way to spend a Friday. So sorry your friends are going through this.
    This is very powerful, you packed a punch in few words. It’s very visual, right down to the tasteless food.

    I’ll be thinking about you. Try to stay positive today, even though…

      You know, it was such a beautiful service. Honestly, one of the most wonderful funerals I’ve attended. I know it sounds miserable, but I was so blessed to be able to help and serve my friend at least a little by helping with the service.

      I remember after my dad died, that everything tasted like cardboard for a long time.
