Overwhelming

Sometimes the sadness is overwhelming. I cry at the drop of a name or the thought of a person. An action. A word. A movement.
Still, I feel with intensity the caring for the children I work with. What does it matter that Jerry does not bring a book in the grand scheme of things? What matters is that he is absorbing the nourishment of the wash of material that encompasses the classroom.
I just want to take them all with me. And yet, leave them behind. There is so much we can cure with simple understanding and so much we can hurt with impatience.

May their souls rest in peace- Sue, Ron and Paul. I pray that our Loving Lord takes them into His arms and gives them a peace that they never had here on the earth.
