I had an appointment near our family cemetery so I decided to stop by Beth's grave. I hadn't been there since the interment last month and I was surprised to find her headstone in place. Surprised and devastated. I sat there sobbing and pounding the ground screaming NO! NO! NO! even though I knew it was really yes; yes...yes. I finally calmed down enough to look at the stone again and a peace came over me when I read the words at the very bottom. Beth's favorite movie was The Lion King and there were the words I needed to see: HAKUNA MATATA. If you've never seen the movie or heard the song, Hakuna Matata is a Swahili phrase that means no worries. No worries, can you even imagine? I miss her terribly. I get nauseous when it hits me that I'll never again see her on this earth. I hate that she won't physically be part of future weddings and family events. But no worries, eternal peace, and the light and love of a power greater than us? I realized my tears were not for Beth but for me. She is at peace, I know this with all my heart. We'll be together again one day, but until then, Hakuna Matata, sweetie.
