I'm learning

The fragillity of life has been weighing on me. We've had several random events cramed into the past few days that keep reminding me of our mortality, and this little scripture is just bumping around in my mind...
Ecclesiastes 7:2 "It is better to go to the house of mourning than to go to the house of feasting."
We learn to enjoy life because it has an end. If we never knew the bitter sting of loss or the threat of illness, we may never have the yearning to cherish what we have. I have surrendered to the fact that sometimes we have to learn in ways that we don't want to. I'm surrendering, and I'm beginning to learn.
