*This blog is written In memory of a young man that I never met, but who taught me so much….Life is full of learning. Some of it is hard to understand. If you have lived, laughed, cried and taught ~ thank you for your selfless teaching.
Last week a high school friend of mine lost her son 22-year-old son in a tragic accident. It was a sudden and surprising turn in her life. It was one of those turns where we look back and say, “I didn’t see that coming.”
So many of us have learned, vicariously, through her bravery.
While I know that her heart is breaking, here is what I have learned from my high school friend.
In even the most difficult times….
It is possible to smile.
It is possible to laugh.
It is possible to love.
It is possible to hope.
It is possible to remember.
It is possible to radiate love.
It is possible to focus on the joy.
It is possible to walk forward.
We don’t ask to be teachers ~ in fact, we may beg not to be teachers ~ but the rest of us learn so much. Thank you for your grace, your wisdom, your teaching….
And for those of us who are learning: Whatever it is ~ now and/or in the future ~ you got this.
Dig in. Pray. Find your Center. Find your support. Allow it.
