Help Me Out Here, Einstein

When I consider that Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for over 24 years, I think what a long time that was.  It seems inconceivable.

When I consider that my husband died at 58 years it does not seem nearly long enough. A life cut short.

When I contemplate that my daughter-in-law may die in her 30’s, it is too horrible to bear.  

The number long or short, it’s all relative.

Death is inevitable

Someone asked me after my husband died if I would have married him knowing that he would die at 58.

The question left me speechless. I walked away.  

“Yes, I would have married him!”

I would not have wanted to miss one day of our time together.

None of us know how much time is allotted to us on this earth.  

Age is just a number but when someone we loves dies, the time together is more than just a number.

We go forward in faith knowing that all relationships end in death but hoping for long, meaningful times with the people we love.  That’s all we can ask.

  1. Amen,
    I am sorry and shocked someone would ask you such a ridiculous question. Along with loving someone be it a child, a spouse or even just a friend, comes with it pain and hurt and at some point loss. So to really love, one will also have heartache along the way. It is never happily ever after without a few ups and downs along the way. That doesn’t mean that we don’t look at our situation as ‘happily ever after’, because we can never erase all the love and joy we experienced with that love. To never experience pain it to never have loved.
