For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

Let Her Go

The last few days my daughters have been “welcoming me back into the working world” as I grappled with computers and finding that all-important cup of afternoon coffee. Today, sitting on a quiet beach, watching the tide go out, I thought more about that – returning to the working world. It turns out that I didn’t know how much I missed it until I no longer had it. And I only realized that because of the spirit jolt I felt this past week, even though it was hard.

Couple these thoughts with a song I’ve been chasing for two weeks now on the radio, and it all makes perfect sense. Until we experience the “without”, we can never appreciate the “within”. The song Let Her Go by Passenger explains it so much better than I ever could – and with just a few words written across a gentle melody. This funny little song caught my ear one day in the car and I had to hunt it down. I never heard of Passenger, but I suspect I’ll like more of their music.

Check it out on iTunes or Spotify. It might just catch your ear too, especially if you’ve been missing someone or something in your life.

And so, as another beautiful beach day slowly goes by,

You never need the light til it’s burnin’ low, you never miss the sun til’ it starts to snow, you never know you loved her til you let her go – and – you let her go.

…and…I have written.
