Poetry Jam: Make the Last Memory Be the Best...

I learned a long time ago
how important parting is.
Be it at the end of a phone call,
 saying good bye for the night
or the last time before a separation...

I read a book entitled Celebrate the Temporary
 promoting contemplation of ones death often
with the realization our time here on earth
is temporary…each day is our last
before tomorrow.

September 4th, I lost a dear friend
The last time we spoke was week before she died.
I knew she had physical challenges
but her voice and laugh were still so young
as it was in High School 

She loved to laugh…
so I made sure every time we spoke
I made her laugh.
We talked for hours…
It was a good last memory.

Acts of Kindness...God Made Dogs

Had to share this video.  Anyone who was every blessed to have a dog, will love this and can so relate. I know I am so grateful for our adopted rescue pup Izzy.  We just celebrated four years of her adoption.
I know there are a lot of cat lovers out there too...I will be looking for a video on them...
