“Lord, show me your love and save me as you have promised. Your promise gives me comfort and a joyful life”. Psalm 119:41-50

We never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory. This is a sentence that I hear very often – friends, acquaintances, workshop/seminar speakers – almost everyone that I have met. This had become very true.

My best friend took his last breath in front of me. I have feelings of sadness, anger, abandonment and emptiness. It is not really his fault. He already finished his assignment on earth.

When we were together, he taught me how to laugh. He taught me how to love. We shared solutions to life issues. Yet he did not teach me how to live without him. I decided to take the plunge and start my life without him because he is not coming back.

It has been tough. I am getting there…over time I am starting to find joy in life again – a life beyond loss.
