That is how I would describe my day… Emotional Whiplash
I started today celebrating the life of Melissa Schuler. Melissa was an amazing woman who gave her life to others in so many ways. In today’s celebration of her life, we laughed, we cried (a lot), we honored her and remembered the many ways that she was the love of Christ to so many.
One of Melissa’s favorite volunteer roles was checking kids into Kidz World on Sunday mornings. Here’s a pic of she and her husband serving in Kidz World.
I finished my day attending the kick-off of Collidescope (think VBS on steroids!) Tonight was a celebration night for the entire family. I watched so many lovely families enjoy a (HOT) night with lots of games, food, treats and prizes for everyone. I just love watching the faces of these sweet kids enjoy a party just for them.
And as I watched I couldn’t help but reflect on the importance of these moments. Both of these events for me today created valuable reflective moments… moments where I grieved the loss of a precious life, moments where I celebrated the legacy she left, moments where I saw the beauty of family, moments where I saw the joy of an innocent child, moments that were just plain fun… all moments that were meaningful.
Tonight she would have been proud. Melissa, we missed you!
