I was forced to quote Kittie’s Funeral for Yesterday. Its time for me to attend another funeral. It was someone that I have known for decades. It is also someone that I count as extended family.
I have mentioned that men should allocate emotion to the correct amounts at the right times. I also believe that men should celebrate twice as much as they have been and they should mourn when true loss has been had. This is one of those times.
For us to move on with our lives, we must mourn first. This is a step in the right direction. I look forward to the brighter days.
Three things to be thankful for:
(1) Shelter from the storm:
The person whose funeral I am attending gave me shelter when I was depressed and angry. I was given a warm place to sleep and a simple meal. True kindness.
(2) A chance to see a few people from the past:
I will get to see a few neighbors from the past. May the sun shine upon their faces and wind carry them. For the most part, we had a good run.
(3) Making up for my communications mistakes:
I want to be a better person. I strive to make up for my past mistakes. When someone lets you forgive yourself, it is a true gift. Be better tomorrow.
Be the sunlight when possible. Celebrate when possible.
Do. Be. Love one another as you would want to be loved. Blessings.
