Sometimes it’s all about the way you look at things…
Sometimes all you need is a new perspective, and as cheesy as it is, there really is a difference between seeing a glass half full and seeing it as half empty.
A year ago tomorrow my Mom passed away and to be honest I’m not sure how I feel.
Part of me has just wanted to cry all week as I realize how long it has been that she’s been gone.
But part of me has honestly been super joyful this week, for no earthly explanable reason except that I’ve been continually reminded by God that He is so good and that He loves me.
Maybe instead of looking at tomorrow as one year since Mom passed away, there is another way to look at it.
My Dad posted today on my Mom’s old blog that tomorrow is her one year anniversary of passing into heaven. My mentor, Sue, who is also one of my favorite adults and someone I’ve known since before I can remember said today that tomorrow marks Mom’s one year in heaven. When I read those phrases, it made me incredibly happy, for rather then thinking “My mom hasn’t been here for a whole year. I haven’t seen or talked to her in a whole year, and it’ll only continue to get longer.” I thought “My Mom has experienced heaven for a WHOLE YEAR!”
It’s like when you’re young and it’s your birthday and you’re so excited that you’re a whole year older.
Tomorrow it’ll be her one year birthday of being in a new place. :)
And just think.
For every year she is there, it’s never a countdown to when she will one day leave.
Every year it doesn’t get any closer to an end.
For eternity is never ending.
In the Presence of God.
When we’ve been here ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun.
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’ve first begun.
