Five Minute Friday ~ Common
When I saw the word for this week over at the five minute Friday blog, I had no idea what I was going to write and I still don't, but here goes.
My mother-in-law died on Monday. We spent the week dealing with all of the emotions that come with a death. On Thursday, we celebrated her life. Friends and family members came through the line to tell us how sorry they were for our loss. There were some people that I didn't know that came through the line, but we had something in common. We both had suffered a loss. This loss was very unexpected and came sooner than we thought. Over the course of the holidays, my family and I will remember the times we had with her and laugh and cry at the memories. I also have something in common with my mother-in-law. We both lost our first child, hers through a stillbirth and mine through a miscarriage. Our children have never been on this earth. They have lived in Heaven. And now my mother-in-law has been reunited with her son and has met my child. And someday I will have that in common with her. I so look forward to that day that I will be there with them.
