Shoo, that's a difficult one. There are those things that are inevitable but you wishwishwish would never happen. I hope I never have bury the one's I love, but I know it has to happen at some stage. Well, no, I won't have to bury them, literally, we're of the cremation types, my family, but you know what I mean.
Hoping I don't have to do it, won't change the fact that I will. Perhaps a better hope would be to hope that I never have to say goodbye to anyone I love traumatically or tragically. Anybody who reads Family Matters (fabulous blog) will know what I mean. To die peacefully, surrounded by family and love and still graciousness, that's what I hope for. For all those I love, and me.
