Saying goodbye to people

We are all temporary in this life. That's not something any of us like to think about. The endless parade of beauty products, skin treatments and plastic surgery options is all part of our endless quest to live forever. 

Much like Don Quixote endless quest in that it will neve be fulfilled. We are given but a small moment in the great scheme of things. 

This weekend we are going to say good bye to my husbands grandmother. She raised 7 kids and has dedicated her life to spreading joy and kindness. As with all of us, there are dark parts of her life. But just as a cloud blocking the sun does not mean the sun is gone. It just is blocked for a little while. 

So going to say good bye to this beautiful woman is making us all think about our own temporary lives. About taking pleasure in the simple things. Enjoying each other while we are around. So I implore you to do the same. Take a few minutes and relax. Don't rush around like a busy bee. Rest, relax, repeat. Say I love you. Always be kind. 

Blessings to you and yours.
