Grieving the Coming of Time Notation 2

April 14, 2010

Life without time is unthinkable. After all, our very existence is nestled neatly betwixt two time notations: the date of our birth and the date of our passing. What we do within those two notations is up to us.

But what happens to those of us left behind when someone’s second time notation comes to pass? How do we grieve the loss and help our children understand it, too?

Katie Couric, Jeanette Betancourt and Sesame Street’s Elmo are talking about these very issues tonight at 8 pm ET on the CBS webcast @katiecouric. You can view it by clicking on this link Watch CBS News Videos Online. The most touching part is how real Katie is throughout the entire interview. She has suffered the loss of her husband and her sister, Emily, whose name graces the cancer center that recently  opened in my hometown of Charlottesville, VA.

May we embrace each day with gladness. The pain this life brings is a reminder that we are alive. Cherish each moment, for in each day comes the wisdom of our years.
