There comes a time in life. when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it.You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life. Getting back up is living.

The husband of a dear friend died recently. It took a few days for me to reach out to her because my own memories got in the way.
Like a rerun, I saw it all in front of me like it was yesterday, when in reality it is almost 17 years. How much of what I remember is real? There was just so much drama! What I want to know is, does any one ever get completely past all the sadness of that life-changing experience? I think not-even when one goes on to have a very good life, filled with many very good things to “Kvell”* about.
I saw her sadness and her shock, and was amazed at how quickly she moved on to take care of all the many details that needed to be seen to. Then I remembered, so did I.
She started eliminating the people in her life who were there only because of their relationship with her husband. Then I remembered, so did I.
She immediately connected with other single / widowed women. I realize I did that too.
In an instant you become part of a sisterhood you never thought you’d belong to.
One day, she too will ask, where has the time gone to-and then she’ll reach out to someone else.
*Kvell, of course means, the thing that makes you smile on the inside.
