Between death and eternity

Jesus stained glass at SF Columbarium - NaBloPoMo October 2011Our current home is between the hospital where I found out Calvin was no longer alive and delivered his still body from mine and the columbarium where his ashes will be inurned in a niche that is for him and his sisters and, eventually, us.

In several ways, we’re very much living between death and eternity.

Between: NaBloPoMo October 2011 This post is part of the NaBloPoMo daily blogging challenge. The theme for this month is “Between,” which goes perfectly with how I’ve been feeling and where I find myself: between hope and despair, between love and fear, between trying to conceive and holding a living child in my arms. The prompt for today is: List two things (however close or far) that your current home is between.
