Every man dies - Not every man really lives.
-William Ross Wallace-
I was saddened last night to hear that a friend had taken his life yesterday. How easy it is to miss what turmoil or anxiety or sadness or...could be in the lives of people we know and...we didn't even know. Friends he was with the night before never suspected anything was wrong.
It makes me sad to think that perhaps if he had shared his true feelings then perhaps he wouldn’t have approached that moment.
Something to think about even in just passing a smile to someone you pass along your way. I know I’ve had my own spirits lifted in that way the occasional time when I’ve felt down and have been lost in my own thoughts. Just that gesture of a pleasant awareness and I know I passed it on. It helped to redirect my thoughts Not that a smile would have been enough to stop this friend from this tragic way but one never knows what even a little smile can provide.
My thoughts are with this friend’s family and his friends.
I wish for all my dear blogging friends a happy day... Judi xoxo
Our care should not be to have lived long as to have lived enough.
