So much love!!!

I cannot begin to express how blessed I am... The love and support that John & I have been feeling is overwhelming and simply amazing! Our friends and family, our sisterhood of dreamers and internet friends, our colleagues and communities at work, our church... Just everyone! So many people, I just can't keep up with the love ❤️

One of the readings we selected for Rosa's Requiem Eucharist comes to mind. 

Wisdom 4:7-14

But the righteous, though they die early, will be at rest. For old age is not honored for length of time, or measured by number of years;
but understanding is gray hair for anyone, 
and a blameless life is ripe old age. There were some who pleased God and were loved by him, and while living among sinners were taken up. They were caught up so that evil might not change their understanding or guile deceive their souls. For the fascination of wickedness obscures what is good, and roving desire perverts the innocent mind. Being perfected in a short time, they fulfilled long years; for their souls were pleasing to the Lord, therefore he took them quickly from the midst of wickedness. 

Is it possible that Rosa's soul felt so much love that she was deemed ready by God for the next life? I think so. She was surrounded by so much love... I am so grateful that she felt that. I know she's up in heaven now, and I know one day we will be together again. And in the meantime, the love we feel here from our incredible support system lifts us up. 

Thank you. Thank you thank you thank you ❤️
