Her pain is over
I have just learned that my friend Barbara Wust passed away this morning. She is finally at peace. Of late, she could not type, or speak, and was ready to end her journey here with us. God finally allowed her to be freed from her broken body. I have gone from complete shock and disbelief, to sadness, to now, acceptance. I know that Barb, being so active, and so full of life, would not want to continue in that state.
All week I have been feeling under the weather. Needing long naps in the late afternoon, not hungry, or eating right, painful, just not right. This morning, I awoke feeling better; rested, brighter. I learned that Barb passed away this morning. Barbara was a Reiki master, and she believed, as I did, in energy, and it's healing ways. I believe that the peace that Barbara finally achieved has brushed over me, and that now, both of us can be a peace.
I am still so very sad (hardly the right words) that this happened to Barbara, but for some reason, I feel that she is happier now than she has been in a long time. No more pain, no more tumors, no more inability to get around, nothing, just freedom and peace.
Barbara, my friend, I will never forget you. EVER. You will be the one I try and emulate when I get lost. Your legacy lives on in all you have touched. Peace also to Lynn, and Barbara's family. Peace, finally peace.
