In Memory

Remember those middle of the night phone calls I wrote about a few weeks ago? Well, last night I got one from my girlie, but this time it wasn't good news. She was calling to share that a very good friend of hers had just lost her mom. Her mom was my age... probably younger and had fallen on the tile floor in their home during the middle of the night. That simple accident caused a fatal injury. My heart just breaks for their loss.

As I struggled to think of words of comfort, I remembered what one of my favorite poets, Flavia, wrote-"That which brings us sadness has once brought us joy. May you cherish forever all that was yours." If you didn't have a chance to listen to the song from Point of Grace yesterday, this would be a perfect time to give yourself a gift as it so beautifully reminds us all of "How to Live."

I would like to use this Flavio quote on cards I make so I googled. There are a variety of Flavios. Can you give me more of his name.

We are praying for your family and the family of Vanessa's friend whose mother died.

I loved the song and shared it with several others.

Love you!

Daphne- I probably typed the name wrong. It's Flavia Weeden...she has a line of cards and other products. The book I have is called "Wrapped in a Ribbon"
Hope this helps!

P.S. Glad you enjoyed the song. It really spoke to my heart.
