I really didn't want to see this lesson again. You know, you keep getting the same lessons in life over and over again until you learn it.
I really do know this one! Live life to it's fullest.
Help other people (and life on this planet -- I must include pets in this one).
No good deed goes unpunished - or what comes around goes around.
I sincerely try to "make" someones day each and every day.
I live life as though there is no retirement. I live for today.
I had to say goodbye to a friend. It was a shock. There was no warning, as there many times aren't.
I spent Monday with good friends and neighbors at a pool party. It was a "close" down the pool party. It's starting to get cold here in Wisconsin, our lows last week were in the 40's at night. So, it's time to close up the pool, we won't be seeing many warm days to enjoy it anymore. I know for some out there 40's at night is warm and for many it's cold. For me, it's getting a bit nippy at night.
On Monday, our neighbors John and Julie hosted a party.... bring a dish to pass and enjoy brats while lounging around the pool. It is a great way to spend Labor Day. I look forward to a few get togethers a year where everyone comes together to laugh, have fun and get caught up with each other's busy lives. The party was fun and all enjoyed a great time. It was difficult to say bye to all, but most everyone needed to get up for work on Tuesday am.
The next day..... On Tuesday morning I was walking my Golden, Simba and waved hi to a friend driving by. Little did I know it would be the last time I saw him. He was coming home from work not feeling well. 1/2 hour later my husband passed his house and saw the paramedics taking him out....I was to hear 1/2 hour later that he didn't make it. Jim Stark was only 58 and went on to his new life in Heaven.
Jim was the kind of guy who helped many, he was a religious teacher and all around wonderful Dad and husband. Jim would ride his bike around the neighborhood saying hello to everyone. He always had a smile. I remember him fondly Sunday, enjoying his day with many others.
We will miss you greatly Jim. I hope you're playing your guitar and visiting with Bob Dylan!
Remember - our time is but a blur here on earth, our true life begins at the end beginning when we go to Heaven.
