LIFE WILL BE A LITTLE DIFFERENT...Tags : family, life .
Life is sometimes unfair… And though I hate to bring negative to this blog, this space is also my personal journal to share what I feel is most important to me. Real life, my life, sometimes it isn't all roses. Today I'm ok, today I have sweet friends to make me smile and ease the heartache, but last night I wasn't so happy… miserable in fact and frustrated with life's curveballs it keeps throwing my direction. Now, I'm not posting this looking for attention or messages saying you're so sorry, but more as a reflection to myself that life is to sweet to take for granted. To live each day to the fullest and to be happy with all that I have. To do what I love. To be proud of myself. To show people I care thru the little acts of kindness which will make each day a bit brighter for myself and others around me. My cousin Ronnilynn lived like this… and sadly, and unexpectedly, yesterday, I lost my cousin. She was like an older sister to me and had been in my life for as long as I can recall. She will always continue to hold a special place in my heart. She was my family. I miss her dearly already and I know my family all misses her too. I know that she's in a better place now but it's still saddening to know life without her in it will be a little bit different…
