Whitney Houston. This was the evening of Oprah's interview~ the first one with Whitney Houston's sorrowful death~with her brother, sister in law (best friend of more than 20 years, and her manager), as well as Whitney's one and only Beautiful 19 Daughter(Bobbi Christine) sp? . Oh how I knew, it would be touch me soul deep, warming my heart, exactly the way that Whitney herself did from the time I was a young girl.
This is a prime example, of how I see beyond far beyond news(coffee shop jibber, and even some of my own family members who to this day come to visit to see if I've "HEARD," AND WOULD I MAKE A CALL TO CONFIRM what they heard in a SALON OF ALLLL PLACES("NO WAY, NOT A CHANCE")!!!! Those are the reasons I often ignore the familiar knock at the door, and shut my cell phone OFF, during certain times of the day, as well as early evening. Avoiding those who so often thrive bleak, hungering for the NEGATIVE, doing all in their power to create a stir, when in reality~ 99.9% OF THE TIME, THAT INDIVIDUAL IS AN INCREDIBLE HUMAN BEING, WHO HAS (or had) 100's of years of love, compassion, lessons in love, honor, and whom I will go to my grave believing their life may have been short lived, as they came into this world with a DIVINE PURPOSE~A GLORIOUS MESSAGE FROM GOD ABOVE, shared through that individual's own heavenly granted talents, the ability to connect with millions of individuals of any ethnic group, age group, current living situation, and from the back ground as well, from which they lived. This my dear spark Family is who Whitney Houston shall forever be in my heart.
Amazingly, I learned the bond she shared with her Daughter, is one in the same, as the one I am blessed to share with my own Daughter, and soooo the one I long to have again with my son, when the time is right for him. Both of my children know, that for many years I've been preparing them to spread their wings and fly~far beyond what they consider their wildest dreams "of the ultimate meaning of happiness, and making it in this world, whether I am still physically here on earth, or sending them kisses with angel dust~day and night....for the rest of their lives." They know I will always be with them, and what a precious, most feeling that is for all of us. Death isn't a horrible thing, it is the ultimate beginning into eternity sweet.....if we have "Believed."
Awwww to see the good in others, feel the warmth the emit, treasure and count our blessings for the oppertunity to have had them in our lives (even if they are, or were a Vocal Icon, who honestly didn't know us).....if there are people in your life, who have moved you heart and soul, sprinkled angel dust upon you while still living, loved you through the good, the bad, and the ugly~God Bless Them.....Let Them Know! For our lives are truly in God's hands. He knows our time line, he knows Allllll, and still Loves us unconditionally....just waiting for us~to Thank him, and to invite him into our lives, our hearts, and our souls. He knows if we will be a loner, who is still capible of reaching out to millions making a difference in their lives. He knows which of us will see no flaws, and excuses us from answering the door when we know it's somebody(even if it's a family member) who's goal is to talk gossip, trash, or smut. Smiling softly......this I am, and counting my every blessing for Spark friends who have become extended family~like myself....seeing beyond what could become tabloid trash about myself, and loving me whole heartedly......."JUST FOR BEING ME." Thank you from the bottom of my heart. What A Difference You Have Made In My LIfe.
