The idea of living a long life appeals to everyone but the idea of getting old appeals to no one. We are complicated creatures. It’s sometimes difficult to think about the cycle of life even though we all know the final chapter here on earth will one day have a ‘The End’ stamped on the last page. It reminds me of an old blue grass song by I.B. Skunked, ‘Every Body wanna go to Heaven, but ain’t nobody wanna die’. There are many studies on what is the number one fear of most people and it’s not death, it’s public speaking. So does that mean people asked to speak at funerals fear being at the podium more than being the guest of honor? Go figure. Maybe when we lose a friend or a family member our mortality sets in a bit firmer. I know the old saying, the only certainty is death and taxes, but the difference between death and taxes is that death doesn’t get worse every time Congress meets. I’ve lost some beloved family and friends these last 12 months. They were loving, kind and good people and I will greatly miss them, but the one certainty life has taught me is ‘Life Goes On’ and we need to move along with it. It’s easy to take family and friends for granted but don’t let that happen and never miss an opportunity to tell them you love them, over and over again. ❤️ Ro
