Dreading this day...saying Good-bye.
Saturday, July 10, 2010
As I sit here writing this...I really want to curl up with a blanket and lay on my couch all day. I've lost several friends over the past few years and it is very hard. Today I will say good-bye to Greg, he and his family have been friends of my husband and I for 30 years. My husband is at work today, so he is occupied. I am at home alone and feel nothing but dread. Greg, like us has two daughters and several young grandchildren. His wife and I share the same name. Tonight will be so hard, reflecting on the good times we shared. Greg was always the "life of the party". One of his famous sayings..."who's the hottest person in the room?" You always knew he meant himself. It was always in good fun. He loved to hear..."it's you Greg!"
Our lives are way too short. A sudden heart-attack and everything changes. This will be a day of many reflections. We have to be the best we can be at all times. We still have time to make changes. It's such an awakening!
I'd love to stuff myself with doughnuts, but I won't. I had my fresh melon and oatmeal and I won't lay on my couch and grieve while watching the Hallmark channel. Yes, I'm so sad for his family. But we can't change what's happened. I will move forward and remember the fun parts of life we shared. I will go now and walk off these frustrations with my treadmill. I will find my glimmer of hope and light and carry it to his family this evening.
Be happy, be healthy and tell the people important to you that you love them.
Love you all, have a blessed day!
