Live and live well

It’s been slightly more than a week since my Dad passed away. The single most intense emotion I’ve experienced since his death is gratitude. Yes I am sad but Dad’s passing also reminded me to be present to my own life.

In the past week, I looked around in my life with detachment – not without emotion but without judgement; just be with what is there and what isn’t. I am immensely thankful for everything and everyone in my life, and everything and everyone that isn’t. As I grief, I can still smile from my heart.

Thank you Pa. You did it again. Without saying a word, you have reminded me that I have to live and live well. I love you Pa.
