Today I have been dancing all day. Music does feed your soul! I feel like it was healing me. Ironically, songs were added to Hans’ memorial page. (The higher power is taking care of me). So all day I have been dancing while singing at the top of my lungs. Since I’m in this place … I started working on the cds for my Birthday Party. I just might be dancing the entire time!
Tonight Libellula my BNFF was hanging on the cliff. So I start singing to her and playing all this music. She remembers then how the songs makes her feel. I then read to her a post that Hans’ sister put on facebook tonight.
“He would have loved the grand sendoff. I am still sad that he was taken from us way too early, and I am sure this will be hard for a long time, but WOW, what a life!… As we looked through his things to prepare for tonight, we understood a little bit more of who and what Hans was. AMAZING!!! From the cards he saved, to the pictures he took, to the t-shirts he saved, and everything in between, he made the most out of the short time he was here. I hope, if nothing else, we all take a little lesson from Hans. Life is short. Take advantage of the opportunities you have to enjoy the hell out of it. He sure did!!!”
I left her laughing and excited to go to her Grandfathers 87th birthday! The song I shared at the top, is one from the Memorial page. My kids and I had it on repeat for about an hour and were dancing ’til we dropped! (Remind me to thank Hans for wearing them out:) )
I’ve recently moved back to this small town and Man oh Man am I learning lessons! LOL!! The important things are what matter.. NOTHING ELSE. To have a broader consciousness and not sweat the small stuff. I’ve met 3 women who I respect! I am so thankful to have found them. I am really proud of myself for being able to keep the “Bigger Picture” perspective. I can see how so many get caught up in the little things, but to me, it’s just not worth it. I think I scare the men here… or should I say “I’m not what they are used to” lol! It’s all harmless though 😉 A blog for a different day.
I wish all of you much laughter and snuggly hugs and most of all, the ability to “live” life. To thank the higher power each morning and to not have fear or to put aside things you long for. Life is short. LIVE IT!
