Sadness Resides Here Today

When viewing this on occasion it feels like it is to the ends of the earth.
The clouds wrap around us and tuck us in just so.
There is nothing to be seen just beyond the trees.
We wrap most tightly in a quilt and a hug.
We sit by the window and sip our tea.
Will the earth return another day?
Where has it gone?
Our hearts are heavy.
Comfort is here.
Love too!

This post has sadness, that is for sure.
As our dear Carrie, my sister-in-laws step daughter,
died recently of complications from pneumonia and virus.
Our hearts are indeed heavy with sadness for her friends and family.
This view is from her father's home, a view Carrie enjoyed when visiting.
I am sending hugs today for comfort, love wrapped in hugs, tears, and
just a quiet time spent with this view and someone special by their side to hold a hand.
Sometimes that is all we can do when sadness crosses our path.
