Courage is being scared to death… and saddling up anyway…John Wayne
The future is the next minute, don’t waste that minute.
Today I will begin to say farewell to a beloved family member. Visitation at the funeral home is today and the service is tomorrow. Saying farewell is never easy but the knowledge that the loved one remains in one’s heart through the love and lessons they shared is comforting.
The funeral home experience is one I have been through many times over and its good that people are trained to help get you through so you can begin to grieve. It’s truly amazing who you see during the visitation. People you haven’t seen in a very long time will make their way to give their respects.
I am ready for the days ahead and I am grateful to be able to give respect and honor the life that is in the company of saints. Death is a part of life and what you do between your date of birth and your date of death means everything. Live so there will be great stories on the day of your own celebration of life.
Yes, this is so me. I overthink and it impacts my decision making on everything from ordering a meal to picking out what I wanna wear in the mornings. Overthinking comes from having too many choices and how my decisions impacts others. Being a horrible people pleaser can be a reason why I tend to think too much about mundane things.
Holiness is not only about the spirit: it is also the feet that take us to our brothers and sisters, and the hands that allow us to help them… Pope Francis
Hello Sunday as this day begins.
Watched something on the old VCR tonight. Had to rewind the darn tape. #firstworldproblems
There aren’t many people who follow my blog I have met in person. However I consider you friends for a reason in that you are interested in me as a person and as a fellow blogger. Our bond is in living and blogging. It doesn’t matter if we ever meet in person although it would be cool.
I find you all to be quality people who like me have something to say and things in our worlds to share. That is what makes this whole thing special. These blogs I follow don’t write themselves because there is a human being creating and curating and writing important works that are snapshots of time and space and place in their own lives. The same can be said for many who I follow on Twitter and Instagram.
So good people thank you for your support as of late. It is very much appreciated. As I always say, be the star of your own blog and keep on blogging.
Grace and peace and love!
