Tomorrow I have to say goodbye to a friend. She lost her battle with a foe that was just too strong, and even though she put up a mighty fight, now it’s time for her to move on to whatever comes after this life. She wasn’t ready to go, nor should she have been, in the prime of her life, but I guess that’s why we should live every day to the fullest.
I’m thinking about all I’m grateful for, and my list is just never ending. But, when it all comes down to the basics, I’m grateful that I can still hold hands. Sounds a bit strange, but I’m here, and that means that I can still physically hold the hands of people I love. I can hold hands with my daughter, husband, mum, sister, auntie, uncle……because I’m here, and for that I’m grateful.
It’s so very easy to get caught up with thoughts of what we don’t have…..today I’m grateful for what I do have.
Goodbye J, wherever you are will surely be a better place for your presence.
Linking up with maxabellaloves for 52 Weeks of Grateful.
