I realize that a life is made up from a collection of things. Some of those are simply fantastic while others are challenging. Either way they provide opportunities for growth, which in hand delivers the time to learn and change.
I have changed tremendously. My life now is opening up for brand new experiences, which I embrace, rather than feeling the loss and fear. No matter how hard I cried, nothing could change what happened - I can however change what I do next. Life is about what we have, not what we had.
Today is about saying thank you. Thank you to a dearest friend who invited me for dinner tonight about a month ago, because she simply knew how I would feel.
Thank you to a brand new friend who gave me flowers and a drawing of the Seven Dwarves with one of them as George Clooney!
It's about fantastic theater tickets and cell phone calls full of laughter, questions and love. It's about sitting on a deck until midnight drinking wine and laughing. Playing jeopardy. Presenting team-building programs, which David was incredibly proud to do himself. It's about stretching myself with work and amazing creative projects which will inspire and support others. It's about saying I have a right to be involved in a life that excites and thrills me.
None of this I do alone.
Thank YOU for everything you have taught me, in your life and in your passing.
And this is how I know that love is always present.
In saying good bye, we can always say hello.
Love always and with peace -
