“Life is fragile.
Handle with care.”
You’ll get there
“And the time came when the risk to remain tight in a bud
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
– Anaïs Nin
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
Even in the face of adversity, beautiful things can grow.
“I’ve got a great ambition to die of exhaustion rather than boredom.”
“Life would be boring if you never mess-up.”
“I will not be another flower,
picked for my beauty and left to die.
I will be wild,
difficult to find,
and impossible to forget.”
– Erin Van Vuren
“You are imperfect,
you are wired for struggle,
but you are worthy of love and belonging.”
― Brené Brown
