Love well

This has been on my mind all day long...

Death~ so final and it feels like your family is far away and you just want that one more touch, that one last hug- that one last email, text etc..
Death takes that from us, so make sure your husband,wife,kids, parents, siblings know you love them every day.

Losing my Grandpa was the hardest thing ever, we are two days away from his birthday and the ache is still in my heart, the ache that he is no longer able to take my phone call, give me advice, listen to me ramble and cry, then look at me and say.. It isn't the end yet, you can do it.. he always made sure we all knew he loved us.

Losing Leslie was so hard on me... I cannot imagine how her family feels, she was a great friend and I will never forget her. No matter how sick she was, she always asked how I was doing, how I was feeling etc, she was cool like that

These are just two examples of how life can be taken from us, we need to live and live strong, love and love well, be there for that hurting person, give the homeless a coffee or a meal, help that senior who is not able to get out, help that single mom/dad...

Show Love to everyone you meet because you never know just how big their battle is, or how you will impact them with just a smile or a good morning etc...

I will miss grandpa and Leslie every single day, they were loved and always will be loved.


  1. Oh I'm sorry Terri. Your grandpa sounds like an awesome man. I've often lied awake in bed at night thinking about death. It scares the hell out of me sometimes. I know it happens to everyone and I think I know where I'm going when I die, I just hope I get to see the people I love on the other side. Its difficult to think about sometimes.

  2. So sorry for your loss. I recently lost my grandmother and it was so hard! I was very close to her and it was very difficult to see her suffer.

  3. I am so sorry for your losses. We definitely need to live and love well, like you said.

  4. I'm sorry you lost your grandpa. I lost mine over 10 years ago. It was a very hard time. I hope you'll find solace in great memories you all had together.


Thanks for the blogging Love
