Simple Thoughts From A Simple Life
Simple thoughts about a Friend:
Today I sent a simple email link out to people in my addy book. Not thinking how some might not want a smile or not like me. I recieved a terse email back requesting that I remove him from my list NOW. (Like I really care who likes me?)
So I complied right away. That wasn't a big deal Life is so short I don't sweat the little things. Actually his request motivated me to do something I had put off for a week.
A very good friend of mine passed away quietly under the radar. Diagnoised with Cancer middle of Nov. Died the end of Feb. My friend brightened any room she walked into with her giggle her jokes. Her sense of right wrong and love. My friend and I worked together for 5 years I never heard anyone say one unkind thing about her. She was that type of person. She saw good in everyone. No matter how rotten they were.
She left behind 3 kids and some grandkids. She also left behind a gaping hole in the hearts of her friends.
Today I removed her email address from my book. It hurt to do that one simple thing. I paused and thought about several other email addies I had removed from my list of friends and family after unexpected deaths. Each of them touched so many.
As we rush about our days and hours, we forget the important little things.
I urge each of you to remember one special person that touched your life and drop them a little note just to let them know. Tomorrow isn't promised to any of us.
To my wonderful friend Cheryl I wish for you all the fish you can catch, all the laughs you can give the angels. To you Cheryl wait on us someday we will be with you.
