Rest in Peace
When we are three years old, life is a wondrous place full of innocence and love. When we are, three we are embarked on our journey that perhaps is predestined, or is it already paved by the lives that came before?
I am not so pious or wise to think I know the answer, but what I do believe is that we all do the very best we can.
Sometimes our very best is unacceptable in the eyes of the ones who love us the most.
Today, if I could beg for anything from the universe, I would ask for acceptance for those whose path I am unable to understand.
I would ask for the ability to forgive those who could not listen to my pleas to travel a different route, a smoother way.
I would ask for understanding, which seems nearly impossible when I have not followed on their path.
Today, I beg for it all, acceptance, forgiveness and understanding, in memory of my granddaughter, Jessica Shows, who at the age of twenty-eight ,succumbed to her difficult life in which she described, “there are no good stories.”
May you rest in peace, Jessica, with my acceptance, forgiveness and understanding.
