January and February do me in every time. It’s as if the weather only changes to remind me what was lost. I miss my brother. I miss his smiles his laughter. I miss his shining blue eyes.
And so, to me these months give cold and barren new meaning. I don’t want to remember but I’m even more afraid to forget.
So I won’t. I won’t forget how lovely he was. I won’t forget all that he taught me. And I will remember all the love and joy he brought to all of our lives.
I will remember that kindness and compassion are the best attributes anyone could ever have. And I will try to pass that along to others.
I will live life with everything I have to give. I won’t waste my time on earth, because it’s precious.
I will love with no conditions or boundaries because we are all human and deserving of forgiveness.
I will be fully and completely myself because we are all unique, special, and deserve to shine.
I hope that if you too have lost a loved one that you can gather all of your fond memories. Gather all the wisdom. And see that there is still light, and that person is shining through you.
