Over the past year I've lost some significant folks from my life. As with many approaching our sixth decade, losing loved ones begins to happen a bit too frequently and brings a new kind of sadness; one filled with gratitude for time shared and regret over moments that will never be. Because even though we know innately one cannot live forever on this earth, the heart wants to be able to share another cup of coffee, wade in the waves along the shore or share a secret laugh one more time. And to some extent the heart (at least once we reach my age) begins to better understand our time on earth is limited.
