Life and Death...

I went to a funeral today, one of my neighbour.. after a long time.
As I stood there watching her mom crying, her husband holding their baby and little girl, tears streaming, a thought struck me.. One day it will be me, maybe it will me my husband and kids, or my mom and dad..One day ill leave just the same way to go deep under.. to the world beyond..
But then again there must be something...something more serious, that we dont sometimes understand...
Why are we here in the first place if we have to leave someday? Are we not here for a reason? for some significant purpose?
I realise thats how life is, and whatever we do now, must be done the best way we possibly can, make people smile, dont hate or discriminate, love those who dont care or like you a bit, share, and let others know how much they mean to you, before you wount ever have the chance again

Hi Fatima. Funerals almost always make us think a lot about our journey here. You are right we have to do the best we can and express our feelings when we still have time.
Have a great week and live at your best. xoxoxox
