Finding God

Complete

My cleaning lady came over this morning to say that she couldn’t work today because a little girl in their family had passed away and she’d have to go for the funeral.

As she talked about the horrific tragedy, it struck me that the phrase she used in Hindi for death was, ‘Woh poori ho gayee.’

It translates to, “She is complete.”

Isn’t that a beautiful, philosophical way to think about death?

RIP little girl.
