Beginning of Firsts


Saturday our family had a wedding shower for my cousin. Typically, the girls of the family all go together, but we were one less today. Just a few of my thoughts about the day.

Today a day filled with happiness has a bit of sadness overshadowing.
Today is the beginning of the firsts where your beautiful eyes, friendly smile, loving heart, and busy hands won’t be here.
But I pull myself up, wipe the tears from my face, and head out the door to celebrate.
Because although my heart is aching with a void, you taught me many lessons and the two I need today are: 1. Family is important…spend as much time as possible with them. 2. Life is short…LIVE!
