Time to pay respect

In my last post, I told you about a special lady that passed on.  Today we will say our final farewell to her at 12:00.  Sadly, her funeral service is being held at the same chapel that was used a few months ago for my other friend that passed away very suddenly from a brain tumour. 

After all the turmoil in my life in the past two months, I have come back down to earth with a thud.  The passing of Jean has made me realize that I need to take control of my life and pull myself together.  Life is short and too precious to be wasted like I have been doing.  I have been walking around with all these silly questions and in doing that, I have been wasting so much time making myself miserable.

So, today, I am telling myself – Carpe Diem!! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carpe_diem

That is how I will start every day from now.  This brings me to another favourite saying “Positive thoughts breed positive actions”.

I feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders and I can finally take a deep breath and exhale slowly.

    I can’t help but think that maybe your friend would have been pleased that something so sad has such a positive effect on you, given what you wrote about her.

    Life is too short, Buddess! You are so very right.

    EHR – Dankie man. Ek waardeer dit ongelooflik baie.

    Terri – Thank you. I did have a good weekend and I have taken you advice to heart. Thank you for that!!!!

    Katt – Yep!!! I am also so happy that so many people turned up for her funeral. Everything that I wrote in my post was echoed in her service from other friends who paid respect to her. It brought some silent tears to my eyes.

    Angel – I enjoy living on the edge and life without turmoil is way too boring for me!!!
