Another year gone by…

Posted: June 3, 2009 in Uncategorized

Time is fluid.  Regardless of whether you want it to or not, its moves on.  Sure it may seem quick at times (weekends for example) and excruciatingly slow at others (checkout lines come to mind) but it is constantly moving on.  We, as people, move on as well.  Life brings us ups and downs constantly, hence why it has been likened to a roller coaster ride so often, the trick is to cherish the ups and live with the downs.

I write this on one of those days that is marked in my life and my family’s as a day that is both an up and an extreme down day.  Sadly the downs can, and do so often, overpower the ups.  Moving on in life does not mean forgetting, it means remembering and learning to cope with or deal with the downs.  I don’t put much faith in the belief that all things happen for a reason, too much in the world seems totally and completely senseless to justify that statement, but i do believe that we can handle pretty much anything thrown at us given enough time and support, and in doing so, we grow, learn, and move on.  I have a niece and nephew that are living proof of that, and i’m very proud of them both.

Cherish the ups – relive them often in your memories, and remember the downs, but don’t let them define your life.  To that end, i raise a virtual glass and remember the ups of a life cut too short.

rest in peace big brother.
