This week’s #TLT Day of the Dead inspired image got me wondering if the dead have rituals they abide by on the other side. Hope you enjoy…
We’d spent the day visiting our loved ones at this year’s ‘Day of the Living’ celebrations and back in the crypt I was feeling sad.
Sitting together, Mom explained, “It is ok to miss our family and friends and someday we will all be together.”
My big sister added, “They must travel their own roads to complete their journey home.” but deep down I just wish they’d hurry up and get here.
