Sunday night the world lost another wonderful person and I personally lost a good friend. The wife of my best friend passed away.
Anyone that ever met this woman had their life transformed in ways that I am not even sure they fully understand or are aware of. An artist, a techer, a spirtual person, a wife, a step mom were just a few of her many roles.
This person transformed my life in so many ways its not even funny. She could talk you off the ledge with a simple word or two. She could calm your anxiety and fear with a personal story of her expereinces She could alter your thinking with a small phrase. She could give you encouragement with a smile. She had the most wonderful laugh. She was a healer.
More than once I went through difficult personals times and she was always there to offer me encouragement, help point out another perspective (you cant see the forest through the trees) and give guidance without judgement.
I have not been a particularly religious man for some time. In the past I had been put off by some that claim a new age spirtuality and were only providing lip service to a fad or phase they were in.
This person personified spirituality and let me know what it means. For that and everything else I am eternally greatful. Will I miss this person - yes but I am one person. Will the world miss out more from her gifts - YES!
I write this as my own personal reflection of the wonder of this individual. Even though I am sad for the loss I do not mourn her passing - I celebrate her life and the gifts she gave to me and others. She may not be physically with us anymore, but because of her I throughly believe that here spirit and soul lives on.
Thank you DMBC
