First a song to listen to…
I woke this morning to find someone I knew had passed away. His name was Arturo and for about 15 years he worked for my families company. He passed in Mexico and wasn’t too old, maybe fifties. He left behind a wife and three children.
He was a nice fellow, always had a pleasant smile and calm demeanor. He worked hard and we laughed about daily things in life. He was actually interested to visiting South East Asia after talking to me about the life there. I knew he was sick, but didn’t know it would take his life. My thoughts and prayers go with Arturo and his family~
At the same time, I went to the store and on the way a tree that was infamous in my neighborhood had fallen. The tree had created a one way turn on the street and those that were unfamiliar with the turn would sometimes go fast not realizing that there could be a car on the other side coming. While I never heard of any accidents, there were definitely close calls and chipped off pieces in the tree.
After a heavy rain last night, the tree just fell over. It was an oak and came across a property breaking down a fence and going well into the yard. No one was hurt, no house was damaged, but this tree, was now gone. This turn, which I have gone around for 25 years, is now a lot more visible and a unique “feature” of the neighborhood is gone.
So what’s the point?
My point is that leaves fall, trees fall and people go. And that it’s important to remember that life comes and goes. Right now I am watching my 103 year old Grandmother. She calls out for my Mom and her Sister in a similar way a small child would. She has lived a long life and still carries love in her heart and a sense of humor, even though it is very soft-spoken.
I may be still young, but there is a life to be lived! This year expects to be quite adventurous, fun and enlightening. I hope the same to everyone reading ~ Do the activities that make you shine.
