Today was a funeral for a cousin's husband who died suddenly of a heart attack. There is always sadness around a funeral. I usually play the organ or sing or play some music at most family funerals as well as strangers and so I am comfortable with the sadness. I know that some people are afraid of funerals because they are afraid of death. I know that everyone is going to die and so I face life with arms wide open. I am filled with sadness as I look at my aunt's family. They had not seen or spoken to each other for over 20 years. They are so filled with unhappiness and anger that they couldn't even console each other but settle back into the arguing. Life is too short to hold grudges and to argue. Family is so important. Since I am working to lose the weight, I know that if I dont my life will be cut short. So I am filled with sadness at how we allow things to happen. Families fall apart. Families fight. We put on weight and carry it around just like some carry around grudges. I know that tomorrow will be another day and will be a better day too!
