To Baba, in loving memory …
October 25, 2012 will forever be etched in my mind: the day my father was tragically killed in a vehicular accident.
The day before Baba died, I had been preoccupied with doing “stuff” … the day after, nothing made sense!
Anyone who has lost a loved one is familiar with the dark, obese passenger called grief, who uninvited, piggybacks on your life.
- Deep, dark sorrow hijacks joy
- Gut wrenching pain hijacks sleep
- A stolen future hijacks hope
- Unanswered questions hijack peace
As I navigated my present reality, I cried out to God for relief, for a moment to breathe, a minute to recoup before the next wave of grief.
Thank you WordPress Editors 🙂
This obviously came as a complete shock and surprise … I was one excited woman shouting “hallelujah!”
In one swift moment, the Internet floodgates opened and my blog Uwana welcomed hundreds of readers from around the world.
Moments before, I had been praying for God’s light to dissipate my present darkness. Moments later, my spirit was filled with joy, humility, and gratitude.
Dear friends and visitors of Uwana:
You may not know it, but your “hellos” and well wishes to this “stranger” give me hope. They are balm to my wounds and healing to my soul.
THANK YOU friends and WordPress community for your tremendous encouragement!
May grace and peace be multiplied to you always!
