FROM CHILDHOOD AND SO MANY YEARS LATER ...I ATTENDED FUNERALS WITH MY GRANDMOTHER AND MOTHER. OFTEN THE BODY WOULD "LIE IN STATE" AT THE FAMILY HOME---IN THE LIVING ROOM OR DINING ROOM AND EVEN ONCE---THE DECEASED PERSON WAS LYING IN HER OWN BED! I NEVER FELT COMFORTABLE WHEN PEOPLE KISSED THE DECEASED OR HELD HANDS WITH THE DECEASED OR---GOD FORBID---RE-ARRANGED THEIR HAIR OR MAKEUP!!!!

I DON'T FEAR THE DEAD BUT INSTEAD---I RESPECT THE DEAD AND DYING. I THINK OF CEMETERIES AND FUNERAL HOMES AS PLACES THAT ARE ALMOST-SACRED. AFTER ALL--THESE PLACES PREPARE THE DECEASED FOR THEIR FINAL RESTING PLACE.

I SAT WITH MY GRANDMOTHER AS SHE DIED AND IT WASN'T PLEASANT BUT-- I WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO "STEPPED FORWARD"--- TO DO IT. MANY TIMES IN LIFE---WE MUST DO WHAT IS RIGHT---RATHER THAN WHAT PLEASES US.

ALMOST SEVEN YEARS AGO, THE NATIONAL NEWS SHARED A SHOCKING STORY ABOUT DEATH. I WAS REMINDED OF HOW "TRUSTING" PEOPLE ARE WHEN THEY STAY IN A HOTEL OR MOTEL ROOM. WE TRUST THE ROOM IS CLEAN---AND SAFE--- AND PRIVATE. MOST OF ALL---WE TRUST THAT NO ONE IS IN THE ROOM----AT THE SAME TIME---WE ARE IN THE ROOM. NOW---READ THE STORY I'M SHARING ON "SIMPLY, SALLY" WHICH IS LOCATED AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE.

NEVER ASSUME EVERYTHING IS AS IT APPEARS. DARE TO LOOK BEYOND THE OBVIOUS---IF YOU WANT THE TRUTH.

STAY CLOSE---STAY SAFE---STAY AWARE.

MY REALITY.

 

In my life, there are no guarantees. Life keeps changing and before long.... it's time to pack-up my memories----and start a new life--all-over-again.

The little-girl-in-me keeps hoping our endless rides on life's Merry-Go-Round are over but, apparently, my Mother "gifted" me with a lifetime ticket.

Evil never dies.

THE DAY I LOST EVERYONE, I LONGED FOR DEATH. INSTEAD---I WAS BLESSED WITH A NEW LIFE.

I WAS UNABLE TO IGNORE THE WORDS THAT WERE WHISPERED IN MY EAR---WORDS THAT SAID: "YOU AREN'T FINISHED. GOD HAS MUCH-MORE FOR YOU TO DO."
