Uma das melhores amigas que a Marcosa me deu. "E mesmo que eu não tenha a inteligência ou a bravura, eu sou leal para aqueles que são importantes pra mim." | "And even though I might not have the brains or the brawn, I'm loyal to the ones that matter to me."
Because this post reasonates with me so much, it needs to be reposted. Since February 15, 2018 I have visited a dear friend in a hospice, attended a funeral for another who died much too young, lost the dear friend and went to Celebrate her life. Within that time span I learned of another untimely death, an accidental one and visited another friend in the hospital this past Friday who will fully recover. All in the space of one month.
What does all this do to me? It brings up the past losses and grief. I cried and grieved and was sad but it also reminds me of the preciousness of life, how fragile it is and how all the little things can and do bring so much joy. A walk around the block, being greeted by a neighbor, the smell of spring flowers, the warmth of the sun on my face, watching dogs play in the park, the giggle of a toddler as she runs towards her dad, all beautiful moments that if we do not pay attention, we will miss and that would be sad. We really should stop and smell the roses. Life is precious and amazing. #livefully#life#death#loss#grief#bereavement#joy#happiness#living#joiedevive#moments#repost#quote#myspirituallife#yvr#love#live
