On this day, 7 years ago, my sister went Home.  I’ve been sort of preparing for how I’m going to handle that fact.  But then, I was thrown off course by some personal/physical crap.  So, instead, I am dealing with something unexpected and unplanned for.

             (Nothing major, no one [else] died.  Just annoying.  And in urgent need of being managed.)

             I woke up with a song in my head though, and knew it was our message, and it was from her.  Until I did a wee bit of research, I didn’t know why.  Watch this.  It’ll make you smile.

             She is saying that it’s perfectly fine to be happy.  This is her gift to us.  So, thanks, Gay-Gay!

Today’s Sharing:

is THIS PIECE by Keith.  Read it.  Watch the TED talk he has about halfway down.  You’ll be glad you did.  And you’ll never “surf” the same again.

I’m so glad your sister sent us that song–it was a favorite of mine as a kid, and MY sister brought me a little wooden bowl with a kookaburra carved into it when she went to Australia. great reminder to take childlike joy in things.

  2. Hmm, I missed this yesterday. I am so glad Gay sent us a message to let us know things are good. Hugs to you.

    1. I told *A* yesterday, I was sitting at my kitchen table, watching that video, seeing her name on the screen, laughing and crying at the same time. It was such a huge feeling……
