Not too long ago a dear family member passed away, she was a young and lively young woman. Like many she had aspirations for a better life, a great future. She was engaged and was about to be a mother. I remember her as a child, she always wanted to be a nurse because she believed in helping others. She was a great person, a sister, a daughter and a friend. Unfortunately her life was cut short and all her future dreams and goals were left forever on hold.

It was after her death that many of us found out about her writing, she was an avid writer and a great one too. She wrote her thoughts for many months and she shared them on her blog that many of us did not know. I came across it and I must say that my heart was filled with a sweet taste of sadness. A young person like herself should not have had to go so soon. She left us with many wonderful memories. She also left us with her writings on her blog. Her thoughts, her opinions, her ideas, her feelings. She left us with a little piece of her that remains alive, and to us as her family that is grand.

You might think it a bit morbid to think in such way. But lets be realistic for a second, we are just passing by this world and sooner or later our time will come as well. We can only hope to appreciate everything that comes our way and make the best out of every moment. What I do know is that I’m glad I’ve been sharing my thoughts here, I’m leaving my thoughts behind no matter what happens tomorrow or the day after.

Smile, make the best of every moment today.
