I feel like I keep writing about the same thing over and over. July is a busy month in terms of birthdays, anniversaries and now deaths. It makes for a surreal time as I count my blessings that my mother, father in law, sister and niece have birthday near each other, but also have now reminders of deaths of close ones.
So I did the best thing I could think of which was hug them just a bit tighter to let them know they matter to me. That I am grateful for their presence in my life. I avoided posting on social media not because I didn’t want to, but I thought my actions could do a better job than my words.
With so much going on in the world, I sometimes wonder if there is anything I can do to make a difference besides argue with people. Nowadays, that seems to be the go to. We no longer listen to each other, but pound each other with our opinions. It all just seems so irrelevant when we fail to celebrate lives and deaths of ones close to us. I rather honor them than focus on being right. Because at the end of the day, that’s all that matters.
