John Lennon would have been 70 today. Hard-core Beatles fan that I am, I have to admit I'm still heartbroken by the loss.
We also lost my dear father-in-law five years ago today. October 9th has become sort of a tender day for me. Be kind to yourself today (and every day). Maybe we all just need to sit and watch the wheels go around for a bit and feel grateful for the love we have in our lives - past, present, and future.
