The beautiful fall day
is just what I have needed.
The days of summer to fall
have been going by so fast
that sometimes I feel like I have not had time to think,
which is rather silly because I do have so much time alone.
Turning 50 has been awesome for me.
I love being fifty.
I love how peaceful and happy I feel about my life.
In the last two months I have known
nine people that have passed away,
mostly taken by Cancer of one form or another.
One of my dearest friends is facing it right now,
she is 87 and is facing everything with such
grace and dignity.
I told her one day that I wished I had
the right words to say to her, and she
said the best thing I could do
was to just listen and hold
her hand, that I was doing
I think it is common to feel helpless at times like this,
but I am also determined, determined that I
am going to live the very best life I can,
and that I am going to do everything
I have ever hoped to do,
and hopefully I will have someone
whom finds my stories as interesting
as I have found hers over the years.
And through our stories,
each and everyone of us
We will all live on,
no matter at what age
we are taken home.
I did not write this to make
anyone sad, I just felt the need
to get this off my chest.
I want you to enjoy your weekend
and live the very best days you can.
