Letting Go

Sometimes you have to completely walk away from your life and simply let it go. It is not an easy step, but one that is required when someone passes away. What was is gone forever. Yesterday I lost someone who I respect, loved, cared about, understood and celebrated.  The only thing I can do is honor her memory by carrying on the legacy.

There are some things I learned from her. She always said what she felt. When she was wrong she admitted it. She cared more for others than she cared for herself. That is probably the reason she made the choice to leave this earth. It was not totally unexpected. When you live for others and they are gone, there is no reason to live. I will miss her. Eventually the memory will be distant. No one holds the candle forever. There will be no mourning. Life has no time for that. So today I say goodbye and may God forgive you for taking your life.

It’s a very different chapter in the legacy you left behind.

Happy trails.

  1. So sorry for your loss. It is not easy losing someone we love and even harder when they take their own life. I very dear friend of mine did just that but I still remembered his word when he said when we are old and gray we sill sit together and laugh about what we did today. I am not laughing but I sure hope he has found the peace he was seeking. They say things work out differently when people leave this way. I am one who had great contact with the world beyond and soon after my friend passed on he tried to call me. It was like a dream yet not a dream. I would answer the ringing phone hear his voice wanting to explain things to me and lose contact. It happened three times and then no more. I am hoping still to get some word from him.
