Since my young pals death two weeks ago I have wondered this.
Can all the fun and games we had in life, all the laughter and excitement, really make up for a terrible end?
I have no answers. I only have questions.
Then I got this message from a friend after the young warrior died,
“I hope that the cold hard place that is your heart at the moment,
will some day be warmed by the many wonderful memories from the past”.
To me this beautifully says
“Better to have loved and lost,
than never to have loved at all”.
Christmas is nearly here.
It’s up to all of us to create our own lovely memories now and in the year ahead.
It is a time of magic, of family, of socializing and reminiscing.
So I think we should all make a big effort to embrace it, give our children special memories, and take time out to really savor what we have in our lives.
That’s what I intend to do anyway.
