I went to a new meditation class today - it was great. I've missed seeing the facilitator and I've missed doing meditations. I find that meditating regularly helps keep me emotionally even and that's definitely something I need.
At the end of the session, I found out that one of the people who had been in my Spirituality and Healing group died yesterday. She was 42 and leaves lots of kids - I know she'd planned to take the younger ones each on a trip and I think she managed to do that before she died. I last saw her in June when we met at the CT scan waiting room and I stayed with her after my scans because she was alone and scared. I knew that things weren't perfect but I'd had no idea that she was on her way out. We weren't great friends but I'm sad that she's gone. There are visitations this week and the funeral is Saturday; I'll definitely try to make it to one of those.
I think that this is the year where I get to really learn how to handle death. I wish the lessons were easier. And over, at least for a while.
The bright spot in the day was receiving my Japanese fabric. It's gorgeous. It's on a natural, not white, background. I can't wait to use it.
