Jake said to me “It seems like everyone is dying. We have had so many funerals at school lately.”
“Such is the circle of life, Jake. Someone dies and someone is born. It’s all part of life.”
That’s so easy to say when it is not someone you love who has died. Last year at this time we had lost so many loved ones that it was difficult to be so objective. But it is true it is all a part of life; being born, living, bringing life into this world, raising children, watching them raise their own and eventually moving into our next birth into eternal life.
I pray that when that time comes for me I have added to this world for the good, that I have been a beneficial part of the circle.
