A dear friend of mine recently
passed over to the other world. And while I want to be human and feel sorry and
sad, I can’t. This is the reflections on life that comes around when a friend of family member goes home. Of course I’m not happy about her going home—consider it a
selfish want that I’d like for her to be around to see the wonderful things
that are happening in our lives. Yes. This is true. It is selfishness. I must let it go.
And while I don’t find it
necessary to include the details of her passing, I must say that she was a
strong person of faith, one who fought to make a difference in this world, to
make things right and good. She is a shining star now, watching and helping in
her new realm.
While reflecting on her absence,
I realized how much I appreciated her presence—her humor and sense of what is
Good. And in realizing this, I thought about how important it is that we spend
time to appreciate people while they are with us—while they are alive. I
understand now about a spiritual teaching, one that tells us not to make people
saints a f t e r they are gone.
What’s the point?
I’ve lost a lot of friends and
family over the years—which has given me to understand better how it must be
for them on the other side, since I am connected with them—and one of the
“regrets,” if I have to use that word,
is that I didn’t appreciate them as much as they deserved. More reflections on life.
We are all deserving of love. We
deserve to be thought of with kind thoughts, and believed in with a whole
heart, despite our rough edges, our mistakes, and our quirky ways. Yes. We
deserve to be believed in. Believe in the success of your friends and
family—believe for them until they do succeed, either in this world, or the
In the past, I was not always
adept at maintaining good friendships. But, as life is my best teacher, I’m
learning how to become a better friend, sister, daughter and wife. These life
events cause for opportunities to reflect on the inside—when we can change our
life for the better—for our own souls, and for those around us. After all, it’s
good to consider what people who are close to us have to “go through” when we
are around. This is something that I reflect about frequently. And let’s hope that they also believe in our own success. Best
