Not enjoying the lemonade

Monday, July 15, 2013

You know the saying "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade." Usually I enjoy lemonade, but not today.

Now the drink is bittersweet. My sister passed away three days ago. Kinda took the breath right out of me. She'd had a very short term illness, it was swift and sudden, and I'm really pissed she left. Yet very grateful she wasn't trapped inside a body that no longer functioned.

My heart is broken, but what do you do. Must keep moving forward. Did a yoga class tonight. At the end there was a visualization to sense every part of your body. There was no energy in my feet. I didn't want to walk my path, didn't want to take any more steps. That was interesting to notice.

My sister was love. That's what everyone says when they find out she passed. She was love. Rarely a negative word to ever say about anyone. A fine example to live by. She is everywhere love now. Once I get past my sadness, I'll feel that.

Everyone's path is so unique, so different, yet the same. In the end, the same.

God bless us everyone.

    I have been so caught up with my son, I missed this post. My condolences. She sounds like an angel, and I know she's in a better place.

    Not wanting to take anymore steps is important to notice. Maybe you just need to allow yourself some real time to sit with your feelings, your happy memories, and the reality that is now. It's ok to just sit with it for a while and not rush yourself through what has happened. God bless you during this difficult time.

    I'm so sorry about the loss of your sister. She sounds like she was an incredible person and to miss her is a testament to what a blessing her life was. It's true--sometimes the lemonade still isn't that great.

    Life is not always far and the loved ones we loose along the way it makes it even harder to move forward day to day. I lost my parents several years ago and I still miss them.
