Sorrow and Friendship...
This has been a sad week, but as is always the case, a liberal dose of blessings were mixed in for comfort.
Early Monday morning (in Korea) my Gramma passed away (in Canada). I've been hesitant to post any Blogs since then because words always seem to fail me when the subject matter is important or emotional. Gramma was 96 years old and spent the majority of those years praying constantly for her family. She lived a full life, and brought abundant amounts of joy to a whole whack of people. I love Gramma dearly, and will always be thankful for the love and support that she bestowed liberally on her massive family. I'm going to miss her alot.
I know that many people around the world were praying for our family. Thank-you. I can't speak for others in my family who were far away from Gramma when she died, but I know that although I felt the distance, I never felt alone.
On Monday, my friend Kyung-Min called to say he wouldn't be able to come visit me on Tuesday as planned. However, shortly after he heard about Gramma, he changed his mind, and travelled for several hours after finishing a 16 hour shift so he could "be a consolation" to me. He was a consolation and a blessing to me.
Thanks to everyone for their prayers and words of support and encouragement.
