I attended a funeral yesterday.

I don’t know about you….but each time… I spend time in a church for such events…my thoughts wander.

And so….yesterday…that is exactly what happened…my brain wandered.

That is not to say..I did not listen to the service and what tributes were presented…in fact…I listened very intently.

  I thought of the hours  spent…assisting them from day to day…and the difficulties  encountered along the way.

 I .remembered each of their deaths and how very sad and different those last moments were.

For me….Sadly…I also remembered  how guilty and relieved…… I felt with each of them passing.

But yesterday I had a bit of an epiphany ….I think I have felt these feelings before??

Yes I did….and that is when I thought of our daughter..

.I thought about the days when she decided to leave home and move on…

That was also a time of mixed emotions…sad to see her go…excited for her and what adventures lie in her future…guiltily happy… that she was leaving.

  I never really knew when that time would  occur…she might have decided to live at home for many more years.

Then it hit me…how her leaving home and death are  so much the same…

….both are very natural/ inevitable life events….both are emotional …both are times when a loved one …taken a new path…has moved on.

Ok…not really so profound….but….it is what I was thinking about today.
