I have always had a hard time with funerals, even if it is someone I never knew. Missing my aunt Kathy's funeral many years ago, to this day is one of my biggest regrets. I feared my own emotions, was afraid of being seen crying. Today a year from being 40 I understand now how important it is to cry. How important it is too be there for others in their time of need. I have finally learned not too be afraid of my feelings. When you find someone you can cry with don't let them go. Realize you are not perfect. We all have room for growth. No matter were we are at, no matter how well off or established we might feel, it can all be lost in the blink of a eye. When the material things we hide behind are gone all that is left is the people we love.
Today was a beautiful day with @miroeil but then again every day I spend with this super chill girl is special. If I die tomorrow at least I know I am loved and that I have loved... I am thankful for this life and all the lessons I have learned along the way.
