As The World Revolves

Life’s twist and turns upsets people’s path through this world in unexpected ways. Yeah, I know – not profound and not original.

A woman once married to a cousin in a hospice in Seattle not expected to live a month. Brain hemorrhages/brain cancer felled her three weeks ago while on an Alaska adventure.

A robust woman, she lived life with a zest despite many health problems (once traveled to India for a hip replacement). Her husband, my cousin, has fought MS for decades. For whatever reasons, and not my business, they have gone their separate ways. I’m not certain they have ever divorced.

She has two adult children and four grandsons. She is only 60.

Over the years she has become close to my two surviving aunts. For them, it is like losing a child.

If there is a lesson in this, it is enjoy the people in your life while you have them.

Thanks for that powerful lesson, seize the day. How much easier it is to say than to do! Still, there it is.

May she rest in peace.

Sad, but sounds like she lived life to the fullest she could! May she RIP.
