“Look at every path closely and deliberately, then ask ourselves this crucial question: Does this path have a heart? If it does, then the path is good. If it doesn't, it is of no use.” ~Carlos Castaneda

Goodbye my friend ....

“Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows.”
~Pope Paul VI

Sometimes, the days feel long; but in reality, life is short. We complain every day about meaningless things that, in the end, lead to nothing. How will I leave this world? Will I leave the world a better place or will I be just another complainer?

Death of friends and family changes you. It makes you reflect on your life. What legacy do I want to leave? What will be said in my eulogy? How will my children remember me? When it is time to go, I hope I am ready. I hope I do not feel as if I have left unfinished business or work to be done.

Have a safe trip my friend. We will not forget you. Please continue to watch over the babies in death as you did in life. You will be missed.

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
