My Very Own Emotional Roller Coaster

I've been the giddy girl this week. Aside from angry grieving daughter, things have been great at church. Things have been great in my personal life. Life is pretty fantastic. Really.

This morning, I'm crying. Yes, that's why I'm an emotional roller coaster. In about 30 minutes, I'll be officiating at the funeral of a church member that I came to adore. This is the first time I have witnessed a memorial service for someone that I actually knew. And for some obvious reasons, I think this is going to be a little hard. I think I can pull myself together but I'm awestruck at how life presents itself in so many dazzling colors.

It must be over by now. I'm thinking of you and hope the morning has been meaningful. The first one of those for me was tough, too.

ugh, the first funeral for one we know and love is so horrible. I hope it went okay and that you have a space to grieve yourself as well as being the pastor. (((pastor peters)))
