Celebrating a Spirit and Remembering a Life
“Positive outlook I want in my life, Warm thoughts and firm persistence, I want to be generous, outgoing to all, For these I need your assistance.”
Today is going to be a challenge to have a positive outlook, but not impossible. That is something I’m learning…slowly. 🙂 Two years ago I ‘lost’ one of the most important people in my life. But here’s the thing, I still feel her with me on occasion so she really isn’t completely gone. I just can’t give her a hug or show her something that I think she would like. And that my friends is what I’m truly missing.
I suppose you could say that I’ve gotten used to not having my friend around in the physical sense, but there are still days that it hurts more than anything. Yet today is a celebration of sorts. She went where I can only dream of going right now. She knows things I can only guess at. And I can tell you she is having fun discovering everything there is know about that new place. Just to rub it in my face when I get there. 🙂
For those that believe in reincarnation (I’m uncertain on that front) I think she probably would come back as a blackbird or maybe the small hummingbird that has been hanging around for the past month. 🙂 Honestly I’m not sure what she would come back as. It is kind of hard to imagine her being forced back here, though if given the chance she might.
That was one thing that I always loved and sometimes became frustrated about her. The lack of anything resembling a solid plan. These days though I have learned that sometimes that is a good thing. 🙂
So I will raise a glass, light the candles and incense, and play the songs that remind me of her the most. And I will remember all she taught me about life and love. I will celebrate her spirit that goes on. In short…I’m going to try to put a positive spin on the day. 🙂
