Little Sandwiches & My Death

Yep. You read that title right!

Please note that this blog post although updated was written in January of 2021, 3 months before my cancer diagnosis.

I am writing this blog post more for me so I can remember something that moved me deeply yesterday, but hey if you are here and want to read along, feel free.

So here it is……. Yesterday I was driving by a funeral home and saw the cars outside. It made me wonder, because of the time of day, if they were having a luncheon about that time. I started thinking about how I love little tea sandwiches. I always have. I can pass on the desserts but the little sandwiches I have a hard time saying No to :-).

My spouse also knows this and we have often talked about how there will be little sandwiches at my funeral. ๐Ÿ™‚ I started to think about this and in one brief moment in time while pondering these little sandwiches, I had an epiphany!

Life will go on and it will happen quickly! I saw the people say goodbye to me, say some nice words, eat little sandwiches, sip on coffee and tea and enJOY some desserts and then hop in their cars and go back to work, to their homes, to their life. It will go on as it always does.

I may not be conveying what I feel here but that’s okay because I get it and I did mention this blog post was more for me to remember the moment from yesterday’s drive by the funeral home. ๐Ÿ™‚

What do I take from this? The Gems!


. Here are the gems! (And sidenote I am rereading this on January 26, 2022, nearly 11 months after my Stage IV Cancer Diagnosis and I wouldn’t change a thing! ๐Ÿ™‚

. I think these are all great! ๐Ÿ™‚

. life is short so make the moments matter and the moments count

. forgive quickly and often

. look at everything and every experience as though it were both the first and last time you will feel that, experience that, or see that

. eat the chocolate! (and the little sammies off course) ๐Ÿ™‚

. appreciate each and everyday for the gift that it is, our days are numbered and we all know it… it’s realizing it that matters most

. throw FEAR out the window and tell it you never want to see it again! Live fearlessly

and in JOY!

. be as much YOU as you can! Authentic, Real, Raw in all your imperfection which is perfect!

. be FREE…………….

Be Determined to LIVE Your Life – TODAY!!!

I have a little saying on my fridge. It says, in my own handwriting.

“What is the point of livin the life if we don’t live the life?”

Now you might think that is silly but it works for me. When I see this and walk past it, it instantly reminds me to do the things that mean the most to me! Life is meant to be lived and that means NOW.

TODAY is the day to rejoice in the day. TODAY is the day to squeeze as much JOY out of as you can. TODAY is the day! TODAY, TODAY, TODAY! YAY FOR TODAY!

Just remember none of us is promised tomorrow so TODAY is the day!

Hugs to all!

Seeking Life Rather than Avoiding Death

Today I was in a Facebook group and someone was talking about food and how this particular food was โ€˜to die forโ€™.

Every time I hear that phrase my heart jolts!

ย I love to say instead โ€œto live for!” Example, “This cake is to live for!” ๐Ÿ™‚

And this is how I feel about living with my recent diagnosis of cancer.

I have chosen to fill my days seeking life rather than avoiding death. Now this may sound a little morbid but in all reality it is not. We can all benefit from this. We are all going to die at some pointโ€ฆ. maybe today or maybe tomorrow or maybe 30 years from now. We don’t know when but we can live in the meantime! ………

What matters is did we live while we were alive?

And when it comes to food or things that we love โ€ฆโ€ฆ we should LIVE for them!

I hope that this gives you some food for thoughtโ€ฆ pun very much intended. Have a great day everyone!

Life is Like a Board Game

Life is like a board game. We play the game, we make different moves , we pick different colors, and when the game is over we put it back in the box (coffin).

And if you believe in reincarnation, we open the game again, make different moves, pick different colors and when the game is over we put it back in the box.

We open the game again and again, re-choosing and making different moves.

And it does not matter what moves we make. There is no right or wrong, at the end we close the box, put it away, and play again, if we so choose.

It matters not if we win or lose. There is nothing to lose or gain, itโ€™s just a game. The game is infinite and has unlimited possibilities and choices. We base the game on our choices and on our re-choosing. Sometimes we are the King and sometimes we are the Pawn.

They say children learn the best through play and itโ€™s true because life IS play. We play Work, we Play House, we play Dreams.

The questions to ask are โ€œDid we have fun along the way?โ€, โ€œDid we play the game with passion?โ€ โ€œDid we engage fully and embrace all that the game had to offer?โ€. Or did we play along as a pawn feeling that we were a victim to circumstances beyond our control?

Perhaps if we see this thing called Life as a game of endless creation, we would lighten up, laugh more and realize we take everything way too seriously.
