A New Year

One year ago today, we lost Haytachi. By all accounts, it has been a rough year.

But today, on the anniversary of our loss, we also celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus. To me that is not a coincidence.

The message that I have taken from this Lenten season is that death has no power over me.

There is sadness and grief that surround the losses of the past year, but there is a joy in knowing that they are not the end. 

I have always heard Match say that in her family, funerals were celebrations. (And admittedly when we took family pictures at Popie's funeral lunch, my cousins and I were a little weirded out.) But I don't think it was until this Lenten season that I truly understood the concept.

So, today, is the beginning of my new year. And it is going to be a good one!
