Suddenly:  when something happens immediately after your last breath or memory. It’s next on the timeline of life. Nothing else is in between.

An amazing piece of advise came to me from a co-worker in hospice, a bereavement coordinator…one who follows up with the survivors after a death and facilitates conversations and processes in their grief.

She is the one who asked me if I was going to be willing to still love my friend (who had a child die suddenly) in “her new life.” Suddenly lives change, relationship styles become different, because life changes in unique ways…

Suddenly…and then we begin adjusting.
