I'm so honored and privileged to share in your library. And Jamie's.

My life is better for having had the Hawkins-Gaars in it. ❤️

Hi Katie (and thanks, Rebecca), well, it’s more than a year now from the date of your article. Just stumbled upon your newsletter.

The subject of the fragility of life is one I often broached. I winced in pain reading your article. No words to express, but I’m terribly, terribly sorry.

In response to your question, the greatest comfort I have when I consider the fragility of life, is the hope of an eternal life. And, that, while we are living, we have the choice to focus on what really matters.

I lost my mum and dad (both biological and step) to cancer. My husband was also diagnosed with cancer. So, yes, the fragility of life hits home, hard.

I just wrote about it in a short essay last week in my newsletter here, https://hopemail.substack.com/p/therealityofdeathbrevitylife?utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web&utm_source=copy.

It’s not a plot to get you to read my article! 😅 Just a sharing of my experience.

Take care. ❤️
