Hello Dad…

visit to cemetery

Hello Dad,
today is January 7th
the same date seventeen years ago
at the wee hour of the morning
when I held you in my arms as you
struggled and breathe your last.
The last time Mom and I visited you
at the cemetery was quite some time ago
Not that we have forgotten you but
we believe your spirit dwells
in our hearts and not at the place
where we laid you to rest.
I’m glad I visited you today, Dad
I believe you were at the cemetery too.
I found peace within as I reminisce on the
lessons learned after your passing…
Life is too short to be grumpy
There’s hope in the midst of adversity.
Our success or failures does not
define who we are.
Life is about being joyful.
And there’s joy…
in being yourself
in giving & sharing
in the midst of pain and suffering,
May we find the strength
to let go of our past…
the years of pain and difficulties that
we had somehow survived and have made
 us more compassionate and resilient.
May our hearts be filled with
love, joy and  peace
as we continue to live
joyfully in the moment.

Pieces of Time

New years come and new years go,
 Pieces of time all in a row.
 As we live our life, each second and minute,
 We know we’re privileged to have you in it.
 Our appreciation never ends
 For our greatest blessings: our family and friends.

“One reason God created time was so that 

there would be a place to bury the failures of the past.”

“Move away from your role as a victim and release the control the offending person and situation have had in your life. As you let go of grudges, you’ll no longer define your life by how you’ve been hurt.”

– Katherine Piderman
