After yesterday’s post Henri left a wonderful comment. His thoughts echoed my own but were so very well stated that I encourage all to read them. With those thoughts he posted a you tube video clip. That is just amazing something all should view.
Dying is the one thing every single one of us have in common, timing is the only difference. None are spared this fate. That thought is scary to all. It is easy to say I am not afraid when we believe will occur in the distant future, the distant future we hope. What happens, how do we react when suddenly we realize it will not be in the far distant future. All the time we thought we had has some how snuck right by us. We still may not know the when it will happen but do know it will be much sooner than we would like. Then what do we do? How do we deal with the situation in which we now find ourselves? This I do know,it is not easy.
There is a saying I have heard that is something like, “no one ever said life would be easy, just so worth it.” It is so worth it, why is it we so often don’t realize and appreciate that until it is nearing its end. We can suddenly look back at even times in our lives, that at the time we thought were horrific, the very worst thing that could ever happen to us. Now, we suddenly realize that we would happily trade our current situation for what we had back then. Makes you think doesn’t it.
