"how about not equating death with stopping "
thank you .
the song by alanis morissette... maybe some of you know it.. or like it or hate it. regardless, the words are powerful...especially that line.. it just opened my mind so much.
what if we didn't see death as a stopping point.
what if we saw it as a beginning.
sometimes it's hard... especially when it's someone who is close to you who passes away.
but if we could choose
to think of it as a commencement to something better and look at what good it could possibly bring to us and to them.
it can bring us a strength
as we struggle through it.
it can help us to appreciate life so much more.
it will cause us to want to live fully and wholeheartedly.
it will teach us to love
more and hate less.
it will bring peace from pain
if they were hurting or sick.
bring them everlasting life.
it can put them in a way better place with no pain.
it doesn't stop.
