Stitching A Way Through Sadness

dscn0463

Today there is sadness.  The world seems a little less bright because of the loss of a schoolmate and friend.  We hadn’t seen each other much since high school, but bumped into each other on Facebook a few years ago and got reacquainted.  She helped me through my deep seated angst at reconnecting with classmates from long ago; and on chat we discussed, at length, our issues and heartaches about our kids who had issues of their own.  And, as mothers, we prayed for the kids and for each other.  We had rousing Facebook discussions about our favorite T.V. show and the characters we liked and didn’t like and what we thought their fates should be.  And we enjoyed sharing and commenting on pictures of our grandchildren.  Then she got sick.  At least that part’s over now.

Today is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the somber and reflective season of Lent.  Usually, it takes a while to settle down into the discipline of the season.  I won’t have to settle into it this year.  I’m already there – somber, reflective and sad.

Today I’m going to see if I can figure out how to stitch a way through sadness with a little cloth.
