Life in Transition

This past week has been bitter-sweet:
Our sister-in-law, Betty passed away on Thursday. She has been battling many health issues for so long. Hubby's brother has been an incredible caregiver to his sweetheart. She can finally rest but will be missed and cherished by loved ones. 
We also had grandchild #17 born. 
It's a BOY!! ;D
I'm not a GRAND poet/writer, but this is what resulted in penning some of my random thoughts. 
I hope you're having a beautiful Sunday and always remember to cherish your loved ones near and far as life is precious and a gift... We never know how long one will be with us.
Life in Transition
by Holly Jackson
New life
A beginning
Gift from the heavens
Tiny, precious
Needing protection
Guidance and love
Life progresses
as events transpire
Trials withstood
Fullness achieved
Tired and worn
Returning to heaven
Ready for rest
Having endured much
Loved, cherished
Memories embraced
