***For all of those who are grieving the loss of a loved one.
Today, I learned that my friend Paula’s mother passed away a couple of days ago.
If you haven’t already please take a moment to click on this link to show your support for her at this difficult time. After you click on the link, look for a post entitled “Grief.” In that post, Paula shared about her mother’s love of music. She also shared a video of one of her mother’s favorite songs.
Naturally, after reading the post, I offered my condolences and shared that my mother, who is deceased, was also a huge music fan. I told her that I can vividly remember Mama playing records and singing when I was just a toddler.
At first, Mama sang to me.
Then I found my own voice and began singing back to her.
One of the first songs that we sang together was “Someday We’ll Be Together” by Diana Ross and the Supremes.
I haven’t played that song since she passed away because I knew it would be way too painful if I ever did.
But tonight, in order to show solidarity for my friend in her loss, I will listen to it for the first time since Mama died.
So, for all of you who are missing someone who has made their transition. Please find solace in knowing that we will all be together again–someday.
For Paula and all of those who are grieving.
