  1. Sorry for your loss.Sending you love and light.I too after my Dad passed on learnt to live in the now ,male lots of memories and take lots of pictures.

  2. Your words are beautiful expressed in your lovely poem. I’m so sorry for your loss. Thank you for the reminder to stop and appreciate those we love.

  3. I enjoyed your post and it made me think of people in my family I haven’t connected with in quite some time. How would you approach connecting with someone who constantly blames you for the strain in your relationship with them? You’ve tried to get to the bottom of things and it just doesn’t work out because after they apologize, they blame you for all the problems.

  4. Beautiful post. Two lost ones are in my thoughts today. And, my mother inl law’s health, I fear, is deteriorating. You are so right about what you say.

    I couldn’t have said it better. That’s a very heartfelt message your husband wrote and that’s also a very touching poem from you. These are the time we realize that there are people in our lives that are far too important than work or money or anything else. Life is short and time spent with them is essential.

    Yes, I’ve lost my Mother when I was 9, my brother at the same age, my father was unknown, and slowly my family has passed on. You never know how much you truly needed them until they are no longer there and then you ache just to hear their voice again. Always say “I love you” when you are hanging up the phone…trust me.

    This is so true. My aunt died two years ago and still, we missed her. She’s been the nicest member of our family.

    This is such a beautiful post! Everyone can use this in their lives and make sure they tell their loves ones how they feel.

  9. Love this, bittersweet. But much more sweeter. I was able to reconnect with my blood dad as I was adopted as a child. It was awesome and he died shortly after we reconnected, sadly. But the day before he died (he sang, danced and played instruments) I was attending a mass for the Jubilee of Mercy. A sweet little man with brilliant blue eyes, joyfully comes from nowhere and points to a bird in a tree. He tells us,the bird sings beautifully and asked if we heard him. He tells us they call the bird St. Michael. Now I am looking for the bird and once I see him, he flies away and the little man scurried away too. I kinda felt the little singing bird who flew away and who I never heard sing was a symbol of my dad. As he flew away the next day. My girlfriend is so funny, she thought the little man with the blue eyes was an angel. Never know, do we?

  10. Thank you for sharing this poem. I love the message behind it and I agree that it is very important to show the ones you love that you value them whenever you have the opportunity to do so.

  11. This was so beautifully written! Sometimes people get caught up in the materials of the world and forget about what is really important. It really shouldn’t take much or cost anything to make others close to you feel good.
