"All at Once" -- The Fray



"Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same."

Isn't that the truth!

It was so hard to let my daughter go... but it would have been so wrong to make her stay any longer.

We gave her the best sendoff we could. And then we let her go.

Maybe I'll be able to write about it some day.

Awww... Anne, I am sorry you had to go through that but applaud you for all that you did for her. And I know you were blessed by her presence in your life and must miss her terribly.

I have peace about the closure I had with my one of my uncles. I was able to be with him during the last 2 days of his life and that first night we were still able to communicate with each other but by the next morning it was just me talking, but I kept doing it because I know the hearing is the last to go.

Conversely, I have major guilt over letting my other uncle down because I was unable to fly down to Alabama when he was dying. When he needed me most...I wasn't there. Life got in the way. And he was the uncle who rescued me and gave me a home and gave me away at my wedding.

I loved them both so much. It is a beautiful thing when you can have a peaceful, healing closure with a loved one about to leave this life.

I would like to read your post.
