Recently people who have been through this and understand, have reminded me that I should get up and do things that he would want and that would honor him as the head of this family and would make him happy.
Most of you don’t have any right to tell me what to do or how to do this, but a few of you have earned your mourning guide badge through pain and suffering and have reminded me of this; not so much through words, and definitely not through suggestions or advice, but have reminded me through your actions as I see you honoring your loved ones who have gone before by finding and focusing on the good in this life.
So today Team Zolfaghari will savor life, with one member unseen by earthly eyes, and our new member Ariel, we will go and enjoy God’s presence and gifts. We will enjoy being together and being with others. We will enjoy the sun and the water.
I am tired of mourning. It is hard work. I’m tired of weeping and wondering and missing. So today, I hope for a break. Today we hope to step closer to our home in heaven while our feet still remain on earth.
