I attended a very nice memorial service today for a man that I had met a couple of times but never really spoke to as he was the father of someone I know. It was a service that the man planned himself. He was 91 and he knew he would be leaving this world sooner rather than later. It was quite moving to hear the music and the Bible readings that he chose himself. What an amazing gift to give your family and friends.
The good news is that since I was a mere acquaintance, I didn’t have to hug anyone so the empath in me is grateful that there is no depression, headache and angst. Being an empath is not fun when the environment is full of sadness. I was able to shield today and that makes me happy. I hope one day to be able to shield at will. I’m not too sure that’ll ever happen but a girl can dream, right?
