After the Storm
(And this too:)
We brought our second daughter home.
Bittersweet, with an emphasis on the sweet.
As my husband drove us home, we listened to a song on Bowie's playlist, "After the Storm," by Mumford & Sons. And as I feel completely unable to summarize the last 3 or 4 days right now, I'm going to leave you with these lyrics:
"Because death is just so full
And man so small
I'm scared of what's behind
And what's before.
There will come a time, you'll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair."
