Just like yesterday, I’ve another quote for you from Elisabeth Kubler-Ross – again it’s about acknowledging we should not focus on when and how our live on earth will end, but instead focus on making the most of our time while we are alive!

It’s only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth – and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up, we will then begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

I guess when our lives are touched by the death of someone very close to us, we do spend time thinking about our own mortality, and, dare I say, we forget to make the most our of life. Don’t get me wrong, we all need to grieve when we lose someone dear to us, but we must be careful not to let that grief consume us so that we stop living…after all I’m sure those who have passed away wouldn’t have wanted us to stop living our life because they have passed away, would they?

So yes, grieve for those you love when they pass away, but don’t let that grief take over your life so you forget to live yourself.

Live Forever by Michael W Smith

You painted me a picture of tomorrow
A place where you and I walked hand in hand
A world without despair and without shadows
But things just didn’t turn out how we’d planned
Now you’re gone

And I believe that there is somewhere
Where the angels fill the sky
And I believe we’ll live forever
You and I, you and I
Will never die

I wonder if you knew that you were leaving
I thought that I saw something in your eyes
You painted me a picture of believing
I’ll see you there on the other side
And I’ll be there
