“We have to start learning how to live in a way so that a future will be possible for our children and our grandchildren. We need a kind of collective awakening. We have the dharma; we have the means; we have enough wisdom. We do not have to sink into despair…we can act.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh ~❇~ WILD WOMAN SISTERHOOD™ #wildwomansisterhood #thichnhathanh #calltoaction #future
This touched me. I didn't think about being buried or cremated. My daughters asked if I would be cremated. That way I would spend one year with one daughter and the next with the other. When they got older. Christmas was so special to us. All holidays but that one was the most. I have taught them the true meaning of Christmas. We only celebrate Jesus's birth. We give gifts on New Years Day. We decorate 2 huge Angel plants with homemade snowflakes. Then we celebrate gift exchanging.
I look forward to the day when this is said to me and they truly, actually mean it, with their heart and soul. I will feel it and know it to be true, I will know this is not just something they trot out, for whatever reason. I will know, and they will know that we are meant to and want to be together.
Grief, I’ve learned, is really love. It’s all the love you want to give but cannot give. The more you loved someone, the more you grieve. All of that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes and in that part of your chest that gets empty and hollow feeling. The happiness of love turns to sadness when unspent. Grief is just love with no place to go. - Jamie from http://allmylooseends.com/2014/03/lights-wink/
