The human body is a sophisticated machine consisting of thousands of working parts designed by a genius. But of all of the working parts, visible to the eye, there are thousands of non-working parts that are important in the make-up of being human. Being human means being capable of expressing emotions of happiness, but also being able to express grief at the lost of a loved one. When we were given the capability to express joy and pain we were not promised that life would be a continual bed of roses, but we were provided with the ability to live with the thorns. Somewhere along life’s journey I hope I have learned to be a human.
To my friends who sent condolences at the loss of a very special friend in my life, I thank you, and it has been those words that provided me with the strength to get through the last few days.
An empty heart is one that is hard to be refilled with meaningful love. Nevertheless for those of us who have had our hearts broken, but have managed to put the pieces back together again, even with scars, we have learned to live by the motto of “Keep on Trucking.”
