mindful monday: bereavement

The day started off heavy when I found out a co-worker’s 18-year old daughter was murdered this weekend.  Obviously the co-worker did not come to work today.  My heart breaks for her and her husband.  We were just discussing her daughter’s graduation the other day and her plans to go to college.  I don’t know what to say, every standard sympathetic platitude does not even come close to comfort, is not able to hold any weight against the flood of emotion I’m sure this family is feeling.  I do think this article is a good thing to reflect on.  And prayer, definitely prayer for the family.
