A title of a Reba McEntire song……….but so much meaning in that title.
I remember after my mother-in-law passed away we stopped at a restaurant for a sandwich on the way home from the hospital. Everyone just kept walking around doing their own thing and laughing and talking but our hearts were aching. Didn’t people know that we had a terrible loss and we were very sad???
I have never forgotten when a friend told me one time at a funeral that it was not now that the family needed us but rather 6 months from now when everyone goes back to living their own lives and the people who have experienced the loss are still sad.
We lost a dear friend last week to cancer and we will never forget him. And I don’t ever want to forget to remind the family that even though the world goes on, we will still remember.
We should all make it a priority to stop our world, if just for a moment, to remember those who have a broken heart …………and let them know we do remember!
