Life’s Highs and Lows

So, yes I’m on the move again. In fact as I write this blog I’m in transit on a flight bound for Florida. This time around the primary reason for this trip is a solemn one. The cycle of life is one sprinkled with highs and lows and ups and downs, and we just have to “ride the waves” as they come.

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about my childhood days. The days of innocence when life was simple and carefree and deaths were far, few and in between. Remember those days when the young did not die and a ripe old age was the pre-requisite for dying? Isn’t that the way you remember it too? Today I would dare to say that age of innocence is lost for even the innocent.

I don’t mean to be a downer but lately with all that’s happening around me that’s how I feel. I’m often heart broken and sad. Still I refuse to be drowned by the dark because among this darkness there is light. This weekend I also celebrate an anniversary so all is not lost. These recent events have only made me appreciate life and my family and friends even more and I’ll love them and hug them even tighter as we navigate our way through life’s highs and lows.

  1. You are so right! Sometimes I feel numb because the sad news seems to be a monthly thing. These unexpected transitions [especially of the young] do cause’ wear and tear’ on the heart. In these moments self-care…checking in on yourself is so important. I pray you’ll be strengthened for this one.

  2. Take comfort in the many shared memories with our loved ones. Create as many as possible. Love, celebrate and reflect often. Document memories for those here snd to come. Life is fleeting do we must be deliberate in making each day meaningful.
    My church sister and brother lost their 22 year old son in a tragic collision in CT on Monday. Unfathomable grief. So we pause, comfort, reflect, yet we must continue to live while we have life as the March of time never pauses. Please accept some cheer from me to you to offset the solemn event.
