perspective

Just when you're up to your neck in your whiny little complaints (see post below), real life happens, and reminds you that there are more important things.

I got a dreaded early-morning phone call from my grandmother informing me that my great-uncle passed late last night/early this morning. I won't go into the dynamics of my family, but all you need to know is that my extended family is HUGE (like, around a hundred) and my great-uncle was someone with whom my brother and I actually had a relationship. His wife is one of my favorite people.

Not feeling so sad right now as much as profoundly disappointed.

There will be more to tell about this later.

Thanks, y'all. His passing was peaceful, which was all that we could hope for. I'll write more about this later in the week, when the services begin.
