I did something nice yesterday for someone else. my sister works with a lady who has ms. she recently lost her husband to a brain tumour. my sister was caring for both of these people. the lady is devastated having lost her husband.
my sister said at his funeral they played my old man, which is a song by the fureys. an irish group. its a poignant song and she said the lady was very upset as you would be burying your beloved husband.
after the funeral the lady had asked her son to copy a fureys cd for her. he never did it and so my sister said she’d ask me, since I have the same fureys cd. when I heard that the lady just wanted to have this song as a reminder of her husband, I had to do this for her.
So yesterday I copied the cds for my sister to take to her. she’s picking them up this morning. Doing this makes me feel good. I feel good knowing that my one small gesture will make someone whose grieving feel a littel better and help them to remember their husband.
