I don't know what to say

I am having a very hard time writing this post. I truly don't know what to say, or how to say it, bcs I will never do IT justice.

Sometimes, sometimes horrendous things happen.

Sometimes, sometimes the extraordinary beauty that arises [last paragraph] from it is more than what is bearable.

Sometimes, sometimes the numinous can be almost touched.

And sometimes, sometimes someone will understand the touch of the numinous and actually take the time out of a busy life w a husband, two boys and a new, nauseous pregnancy, to do something like this - for me:


And my broken heart breaks anew but in a wondrous, grateful way, and I still truly don't know what to say, or how to say it, bcs I will never do IT justice.

Kristin, thank you. So, so very much. For the butterfly, yes, but above all, for understanding it so well.

[And thank you lot, again. As always. You may remember, but I don't forget.]

My dear friend...you have offered so much support to so many of us, how could I not try to help. Like I told you, it called your name and that was all it took. It had to be done.

Oh, God, that is so beautiful. Kristin, you are a wonderful person for thinking of this and sending it to her. It's a wonderful testimony to the wonder that is Uzi.

Um, Johnny, would you email me your address because you know that magnet I told you about, the one I "almost" bought for you (the Pink Panther one). When we got back from Portugal and sat down at Beth's scrapbooking table, I found it. I guess I had bought it. Just forgot to bring it.

I love you and miss you much.

That is so lovely! Bravo Kristen!!

Lioness, I was watching Oprah yesterday and it was an interview with Dana Reeves (wife of the late Christopher Reeve) and she was saying that the first night that Chris was gone she sat by her window and looked to the heavens, as if for a sign that he had made it, that he was safe and free.

And suddenly stars started falling left and right. She had never seen a 'falling' (or shooting) star and there were at least 6 of them all at once, as if he was saying...Look! I'm free! I'm here! I'm love you!

And she said she was sure it sounded silly to some folk, but for her, it truly was Chris telling her he loved her so very much. I thought of your butterfly and how incredibly beautiful a gesture it was.

Thinking of you.

I honestly believe what you are saying J. Except in my case I have a baby praying mantis I get signs from. It is really beautiful. When my daughter died I had this baby pm follow me around for days. wherever i went there it was. i still see one nearby if ever im feeling bad.

stick to these beliefs it really does help.

lots of love.
