Quote of the day – Mary Manin Morrissey

“Even though you want
to move forward in your life,
you may have one foot
on the brakes.
In order to be free,
we must learn
how to let go.
Release the hurt.
Release the fear.
Refuse to entertain
your old pain.
The energy it takes
to hang onto the past
is holding you back
from a new life.
What is it you would
let go of today?”
– Mary Manin Morrissey

Quote of the day – Karen DeCrow

“No matter what is happening in life
or in the world – war, natural
disaster, poor health, pain, the death
of loved ones – if existence is filled
with art, music and literature, life
will be fulfilling, a joy.”

Happy heavenly 88th Birthday, Dad

Hi Dad,
For many years after you left,
I felt the pain and burden of
all the things that were left unsaid.
I had like a thousand questions to ask you
and a thousand reasons not to.
Through your life struggles and illness
you had shown me what truly matters in this world.
But today, I’ll remember you in the happiest way.
Thoughts of you make me smile,
knowing you are now free and
and resting peacefully in heaven.
“Happy 88th birthday, Dad!
May the angels sing joyously to you today.”
“Deeply, I know this, that love triumphs over death. My father continues to be loved, and therefore he remains by my side.” – Jennifer Williamson
