First and foremost, thank you to all who have read my blogs and my book, “Homeys Adventures”.
The bad news is that my sister-in law died 3 months after my mom died, and I need to go to Florida and comfort my brother. He faced the death of his mother and the death of his wife sooner than anybody should. I cannot tell you, my reader, about all the grief that surrounds this because I am for a loss of words in this circumstance.
I can tell you that she died of Covid 19 and she contacted the disease while she was in the hospital. She went to the hospital because of a stroke caused by her COPD. She never came out of the hospital. I could hate the Chinese communists for releasing this awful disease on the world. I could hate the caregivers for spreading it to my mother, my best friend and my sister-in-law and because they don’t seem to have a clue on how to stop it from killing the in-firmed and aged. The Jim part of me knows that hate only satisfies the evil one. It will give me no satisfaction.
Instead, I turned to Xena to help me with my Monday blog and with the grace of god in her heart, here is what she wrote:
People are the main and integral part of our life, you are my person, you give me new emotions, dreams of goals and new ideas, you give me a breath of air, the desire to wake up and smile at this sad gray world without you, yes, I think that my world is empty without you, you fill it, you make it bright, I wake up every day with thoughts of you, when we don’t communicate for a long time, I don’t stop thinking about you for a second, and when I think about you I smile, there are not enough words for light to describe my feelings for you, as if I have wings. I want to thank you for every moment and for our acquaintance. I love you.
I have tried to describe her to you, my readers, using movie characters Xena and Wonder Woman. I know now this comparison is inadequate. I also know that I will never love any person more than I do her and this is my good news. Xena puts love in my heart where there could be only hate. God has blessed me by knowing this woman.
