This will be short. This week was filled with emotion, the result of doing life kinds of things.
A good friend of mine passed away at the end of January. This week was her memorial service. It was a well-attended by people from all aspects of her life: her church, work, and service communities. While I was very sad, the service was a gift, a way of coming to closure, a lot of tears and a few out right laughs.
She was a blessing in my life and will be missed. I’m grateful to have known her.
We can find gratitude in everyday things. It’s the best way, countin’ those blessings every day.
Hug tight those special ones in your life when ever you can. Tell your loved ones they are loved. Don’t pass up a single opportunity to show a random act of kindness. Smile at people – you don’t know what’s going on in their life. Be that great person you admire. Laugh out loud with friends and family. Then be amazed at what love, joy and happiness you have to count as blessings.
Until the next time …
