Eileen probably was looking out for you - and her family understood her well enough to accede to her wishes. I am in total sympathy with you...firstly, for her demise and secondly, to try and explain to others why you were wearing happy colours to an obviously sad event.

Here's my emoticon for you, KOSHIE1.... emoticon

Just got back... a lovely service and wake.
The family had asked that mourners NOT wear black, but rather, as they wanted the wake to be a celebration of her life, asked that we wear bright happy colors. That is surprisingly hard to do for a funeral! I mean, how do you "hit the right note"? Cultural proscriptions are strong!
At least half the people there (at LEAST!) wore black, navy, gray, or some somber color. I wore a bright pink chemise with white belt, necklace and earrings. There were a few others wearing "bright happy colors."
You never know when someone will drop out of your life -- or into it! I met 2 women there who have potential to become friends. Both wearing bright happy colors! Thank you, Eileen, what a wonderful, lasting, and on-going legacy!

There's no emoticon for what I feel. Sad, bemused, grateful, confused....

Tomorrow I go to another funeral. A close acquaintance died in a car accident.

Oh, the jump-rope brought out the 8-yo in all of us.... or at least the memories. It did NOT re-animate the ability to jump-rope! I know I was as surprised as everyone else! I hope my friends were as aggravated as I am by failure to do something so simple that used to give such joy -- which is why I'm trying to jump rope again! I hope they do too!

It is going to be a lovely week-end; I hope you enjoy it!

This is one of the hardest exercises to perform and anyone who can skip rope for 5 minutes continuously is deemed very fit! Why do you think boxers skip rope as part of their daily routine? Congrats, my friend....you could be one of the fittest ladies in your age group soon!!

Have a great weekend!!

With the right genes, diet, and exercise, age is just a number! Unfortunately you can do nothing about your genes (or age) -- but the other stuff helps a LOT!

I took a jump-rope to exercise class with me yesterday. Everybody took a turn -- and everybody was mortified about how poorly she could perform this task! Is it age? Total lack of practice for decades? Or some strange characteristic of the jump rope? I'll be practicing to find out emoticon emoticon

My exercise is really to maintain my current level of fitness and this has worked out very well for me for many years. I have a crazy trainer 3 times a week who insists that age is just a number. Easy for him to say....he's a year older than my daughter!!! It was also just a number to me when I was 30 years old.... emoticon

In Hindustani, if your name is pronounced with a "u" instead of an "o", your name would mean HAPPINESS or JOY....what an apt description for your personality!!!

Koshie is not a pseudonym. Neither is it my given name at birth. It is my nickname which Dad gave me when I was 2 years old. I am named after my mother and my grandmother, and nick-named after my father's favorite aunt. I use my nickname exclusively -- it is even on my passport and driver's license! It is pronounced with a short "O" and a long "E" ... the "o" is the same sound as the "o" in "hot".

Dad really liked nicknames. He gave ALL his 8 children nicknames. And no, nothing like Robbie for my brother Robert, or anything obvious for any of us. "Bump" is his nickname. Most of my many cousins have no idea what our real names are to this day! They aren't embarrassing nicknames. We are Koshie, Timmy, Dub, Ritie, Uncle, Rock, Casey, and Bump.

Those are very kind words KOSHE1 and they made my day (by the way, is KOSHIE your real name or a pseudonym? My name is Prema - pronounced as "pray -ma")

A few years ago, I learnt just how many windows God opens for us even when doors close in on us. And I realised that keeping my faith in God (whatever the choice of faith) and faith in myself, I will see these many windows and be able to smile. So I give thanks to God every day because, despite the many wars, tsunamis, earthquakes, destruction that take the attention of God & Team, I have been lucky enough to feel that I have not been forgotten in the process.

People like you remind me about the good that still prevails. My SP friends, Pat and Kathy, inspire me to keep looking ahead. I have not met all 3 of you....yet I can feel your warmth! Thank you.

emoticon

PS...today, the trainer was closer to being killed than he was before. I spared his life only because I had to go early to the office. But on Wednesday....I will strike! I think!!!

KOSHIE1, I have never had that problem. I have straight friends, gay friends, transgender friends and up to now, have never faced problems complimenting them or strangers in each of their categories. Being Malaysian, most of the time when I give a person a compliment, they spend a lot of time playing it down and telling me that they feel they are opposite to the compliment!!

Having gone to an all-girls high school, I learned to compliment women a long time ago. Sadly, today, I sometimes feel embarrassed or awkward to say something nice out of fear a girl might think I am "hitting on her". Is it my age? Or the age (current times) that I am in? Or am I simply more aware of possible misunderstandings?

I've worked outside for 6.5 hours today, I'm emoticon emoticon

Here's the dilemma; I want to kill the guy during PT but when I get compliments from the mirror and other women (these days, we don't wait for the men to say anything!!), I want him to continue as my PT...

It is true that we lament mostly for ourselves. My cousin's unexpected death arouses my fears for my own family.
The funeral services initiated the usual extended family gathering (and I come from a VERY large extended family!) for the usual extended weekend -- wonderful to see so many, but also, stressful to share in so much grief. I am very tired and emotionally drained. I don't see a suitable emoticon!

The Bhagavadgita (or Gita to most Hindus) tells us that when we lament for the dead, we lament more for ourselves for the loss because we always say "what will I do without you or I miss you". And I also know that we all need our own time to get over death. So when my dad passed away many years ago, I got over it very quickly because I was thankful that God took him away the way he wanted to go - quick and minus the suffering of the aged.

But my mum took more than 3 years before she could speak about him with a smile. She needed that time.

So just go ahead and go through your grieving process and tell me when you get to the day that you can speak about her with joy and laughter, again.

people die every day, but it seems strange that life goes on when you KNOW somebody who dies..... it is like life in general should come to a halt. But the world continues to turn; it is just slightly different for that person's absence. Confusing and a bit scary.

I'm so sad for her large family. And her extended family -- of which I am a small part.
