Do you think of certain people or events and it makes you sad?   I spent time over the last vacation cleaning out the spare room closet.  I found all sorts of reminders, mementos of family and friends. Some of those folks are no longer living on this earth.  I did take some time to dream and then cry, knowing that I would never see them again, not during my life time on this earth.  Yet, as a believer in an afterlife, heaven is sure to be filled with those people I once knew here.  What would that look like?  That’s where my faith comes in because I have no answers.  I just know.  Other things can make me sad, too, but as I remind myself, it is usually short-lived.   Have a good cry, then pull up those big girl panties and march!   There are people to see, places to go, things to do.
