This is my contribution for Paint Party Friday!
We were teens together, but I only knew him from afar. Still his death took me by surprise, I found myself grieving all last week. For his family, and all the community that loved this paramedic, volunteer search and rescue leader! There will be a huge void now that he's gone. I miss his face on our local News channel. Sadly no one knew Sunday morning this beloved man would be gone that night! It has propelled people to give generously to his cause.
I watched the intense video stream of this interesting mans epic memorial six days later. Admirable tributes from friends and coworkers only a true hero would receive touched me immensely. I broke down when his adult children courageously spoke lovingly behind their tears. Revealing how dear their father was as a man in his community and to their family! There is now a campaign to name a peak of a local mountain after him! He truly deserves this and much more for his tremendous selfless service!
It was the passing of Princess Diana that motivated me to wrap up my divorce and move ahead many years ago. I wonder how many others will change direction because of the passing of this dear man. I can't help but wonder what people would do differently if they knew they only had a short time left!
I think I need to get crackin that's for sure...because I have several things I want to accomplish, now I just need to figure out how to control interruptions, self sabotage and physical ailments!
So what do you think you would do differently if you knew you only had five years left?
Here are a few photos cupcake took of the dinner I recently made. I scavenged the fridge for the tail end of our veggies some left over teriyaki pork to make this scrumptious chow mein dish in order to celebrate Chinese New Year! I thought it looked quite pretty!
I wanted to share the beautiful dish my dear friend recently sent me. It was made years ago in her glass blowing days! It now houses my rings! Yes I wear all three rings at once! Nothing says artist more than a bunch of big silver ringsNow if only it were this easy to change my wall colors as it is to digitally change this dish color, I'd be in my glory! Much love to all those who need it this week!! Hug your loved ones, tell them that you love them, and have a great weekend! Don't forget to take lots of photos of them too!!
