This is the weekend of the Summer Solstice… the longest day of the year. It also falls within the Gemini-Cancer Cusp of astrological theories, and this year, it is Father’s Day.
I have so many thoughts rumbling around this brain of mine as I go into this weekend. As some of you know, I am in the midst of writing my book about my brother Greg and the impact his death in 1952 had on our family. This weekend holds particular significance for me…
Greg was born on June 21, 1952 and died unexpectedly in October of that year. I was born on June 22, 1958 – The other half of that Gemini “twin” relationship. Twins who never had a physical connection but who have had a deep spiritual connection since I was a little girl.
This morning, I looked up the meaning of the Gemini-Cancer Cusp at http://www.dailyhoroscope.com to see what it would say about Greg’s and my “personalities”. This is what it said: “Your life will be an inspiration to others… Caring and devoted those born on the Gemini-Cancer Cusp infuse the work around them with light-hearted kindness and are able to find inspiration in the ordinary – then share what they’ve learned with others…”
For those of you who follow my blog, I think you will agree that this description of me is definitely on point! I tend to find inspiration in many “ordinary” things of my day-to-day life, and my blog is the forum in which I share what I have learned with others.
Greg’s life is an inspiration to others because the book I am writing in honor of his life has led me to meet some wonderful people… people who were willing to share their stories of grief. Greg may have only been on this earth for four short months, but his impact on others is only just beginning.
Through my story of growing up in a grieving family, others have already found ways to heal from their grief…, by sharing their own stories. I have had countless conversations with parents and siblings of children who died well before what we believe should have been their time. I have seen the appreciation in their eyes that I cared… that they were listened to…, and that their stories mattered.
I have heard stories of devastation. I have heard stories of inspiration. I have seen the dimmed light of depression, and I have seen the bright light of Hope. For some, the details of the child’s death has lingered on… as if it is their longest day of their life. For others, the details of the death have softened and what remains is a steady glow of comforting light.
Together, my Gemini “Twin” brother Greg and I, will be sharing our story in hopes that what I have learned during this project will inspire others to have FAITH… and to Heal.
