Hello, Goodbye...

A bittersweet weekend has prompted this post. Last Friday, our friends J and M gave birth to their first-born. Mother and Pea-pod are doing fine.

Sadly, K's grandfather passed away in Ohio last week. Our condolences to K and S and their families. In addition, Jenn and I lost a dear friend yesterday: Marilyn Lubin lost a long-suffering battle with cancer. I'm of the belief that she's much better off now, no longer fighting a losing battle. I could open up this post to all the reasons that the world is unfair, and that this is proof of either:

a) No god, therefore this is just the nature of life as we know it.
b) God does exist, but he is obviously not interfering in anything he's created, and is only an observer, taking no real responsibility for his 'creation.'

Either answer suits me, but I really don't want the post to disintegrate to this.
It is best to celebrate the good memories that were left behind by those we lost, and to celebrate the new memories we are about to create with the lives we've gained.

"Where is the fisherman, where is the boat,
Where is the keeper in his carrion coat?
Eclipse on the moon when the dark bird flies
Where is the child with his father's eyes?"

Yeah maybe we should start calling you Bobby Bitterpants! When things seem bad, why do people blame God? Someday He's going to come down here & give you the "Aunt Rose Spanking" of a lifetime for all the nasty jokes you've made about Him!! I hope I can watch.
