The Next Journey

Around 11pm on February 7, my cousin's wife took her last breath.

I like to think that she is on a new journey.  But she left family and friends who mourned her, including a husband and son who loved her very much.

Another life cut short by cancer.

Something that gives me comfort in bad times are sunrises and sunsets. Perhaps, even now, she rides towards the sunrise, free from the paralysis her brain tumor inflicted on her, marveling at the sights unfolding before her.

At least, I hope so.


  1. This season is always painful. May God strengthen and comfort you and your family.

  2. So sorry for your loss. I'm living with someone with cancer and my husband died from it. It's always tough.

  3. Faith gives us comfort Alana - to be released from suffering would be a joy for her - but also such a sad loss for the family. May the sunrises and sunsets bring you some comfort x

  4. This gives me some comfort Alana: "May every sunrise give you hope,and every sunset give you peace."

  5. I am so sorry for your loss. You're having a time of it lately. Too many deaths in your vicinity. I hope your share of loss is passing soon and all your loved ones remain in good health.
