My family and I got word Sunday, March 14th that  my cousin Mike died in a head on collision.  I never know what to say in those situations, I have not experienced a loss by death.  I can only imagine, and that is nowhere near the same.  Mike was my Uncle’s only son and they were very close.  They both reside in different states, so any time they could get together they did.

The world really operates backwards most of the time, for people who suffer loss, they  long to stop time,  and for others who have all their loved ones, they disregard them , hold grudges , have severed relationships, for what, and why?  There is nothing more incomprehensible  then to live a life of regret, solidarity, fear,anger, then why exist?    For those of us with our eyes and hearts wide open,  we always keep learning in our journey of life.  We have  individual lessons to learn and to be mindful of the multi -layered human beings that each and everyone of us is.  The different experiences,  exposures, regions that we come from, makes each one of us who we are.  Basically, do not let self imposed limitations get in the way of receiving or giving love in your life.
