Lost

Every once in a while, when I am very introspective, I dig through the clutter of my soul, poking around in those dark dusty corners. I bring out cherished memories, either write about them or simply dust them off and tuck them lovingly back in for another day. Others I bring out and inspect, making sure they keep a little bit of the dust, because some memories are more calming with a fine layer of dust insulating them from the pain they cause us. ~Cao

I’ve had such a reflective few weeks having just lost an aunt, my mother’s sister. She wasn’t just some long lost relative; she was my aunt the Greatest! We were born on the same day in different years and always tried to celebrate our big day together. But me, being a quasi-adult now and prone to making adult decisions, I sometimes had to make due with a postal exchange of birthday cards, a decision I now regret. But it is what it is.

What was the result of all this mad hashing of the brain matter? When I brought out the memories of her it made me think of something she did bring to me. The knowledge that loving someone doesn’t take money, or even really a whole lot of time, for that matter. You can tell when a person truly loves you when their one and only greatest wish is to do something, anything, just to put a smile on your face. When is the last time you went out of the way to bring someone a smile? It’s such a small gesture, don’t the people around you deserve it?

  1. 🙂 I can relate to this having lost loved ones; still sporting a fresh wound. Know that you have people out in the virtual ether of this vast world that care about you and wish only the best for you. Hugs.
    P.S. I consider myself enabled…shopping will be on my to do list for tonight and it’s all your fault. Love this look!!
