It’s taken my hours to come to terms with this prompt which in a meaningful way came to me on this day. Ironically it was a year ago today that my husband passed from this physical world. It was sudden and unexpected three days after a stroke. I had always felt he would outlive me because he was strong and beautiful and my hero. But his days were numbered as are ours all. It was his time. Now looking back I see that it was approaching but then I did not.
The learning I took from his sudden departure is that we treasure every day on this earth and live it as if it were our last. But that we understand that one day we too will go through this transition. It is not to fear as it is a passage to the “next chapter” of our existence.
But indeed….our days are numbered.
