Feeling sad.

Thursday, August 04, 2016

It's been quite a morning and it's only 10:15. I realized I hadn't seen any FB posts from my friend Barbara in a while so I searched her name. I had just reconnected with her in the Spring and was hoping to get together with her sometime soon. Sadly, that isn't going to happen. She passed away early in July. I knew she had health issues but didn't realize the extent of them.
Looking through her posts I can certainly see what an amazing and upbeat person she was! As a teacher, she had a powerful impact on the young lives she touched. Peanut, you will be greatly missed!
So here i sit feeling very sad and wondering what impact I have on those around me. Self evaluation is good. Life is too short for regrets so reach out and let those around you know you care.

    So sorry about your friend. You are so right about reaching out to people now. I make it a point to tell the people I care about how I feel about them. I am only too aware that the last time you are in contact with someone, may very well be literally the last time. Once again my condolences.

    I'm sorry for your loss! I am, however, glad for you that you have such a lovely person with which to fuel your own self- reflection. It is good.

    I had a similar experience... I had lost touch with a friend, and when I googled his name, I discovered her had died over two years ago... I was happy to see that his life had taken many better turns, but it seemed wrong somehow that he had been gone so long and I had no inkling.

    That moment changed my life for the better in many unexpected ways. I wish the same for you.
