Silver Lining

I've talked about silver linings before in my Rainbow post.

This one is of a more serious nature. Along the lines of good coming from bad. Positive things from tragedy.

A few years ago a friend of mine died at a young age. Suddenly, without warning. Very tragic.

The grieving process was hard for everyone concerned, especially her parents.

Through that I learned much about dealing with death and about what follows.

Almost immediately there were some interesting changes as a result of her death that would be considered positive.

The one I want to speak of though is just recent.
A friends wife died a short while ago. Because I had dealt with the previous death I have been able to be of great value to him.

Since my friend had to die I am glad that something positive resulted and that someone else's life has been made a little easier.

We all learn from experiences, good or bad. It is good that you were able to share what you had learned to help out a friend in need.

I am sorry for your loss'.

Thank you. We think of her often. It was quite hard that first year.

Hey! It just hit me. I was probably seeing it all day but didn't notice.

Amazing how we evolve from such terrible experiences. Sweetie, I am sorry for your loss and the loss of your friend.
