reflection

Life just doesn’t make sense sometimes.  Well, most of the time.  We spend our whole lives searching for meaning.  What kind of legacy do we leave behind?  Money?  Posessions?  What does all our hard work go towards?  Why do we struggle every day, day in and day out…for what?  Does it really matter?  Will today matter in 5 years?  Will someone else’s opinion matter down the road?  Will you even know that person?  Why do we do it?  Why do we get up everyday and deal with a bunch of crap?

Why is my boyfriend listening to Pink right now?

But anyway…what really matters in the end?  Says who?

 

Oma, I love you.  And I miss you.  And I think about you every day and imagine what you would say if I were telling you about my day.  You are not really gone, you are in my heart.  Oma, you have touched SO MANY people!!!!  You would be overjoyed and absolutely thrilled to know how many lives you touched.  Oma, do you even know how many lives you changed?  You made such a big impact on so many people.  You are my hero and I love you dearly and I will never stop loving you.  You made me who I am today.  You made me into the nurturing person I am – you are what made me want to go into teaching…because I wanted to give to others what you gave me.  You always gave and gave and gave… I cannot think of a time when I wanted anything from you.  Your love is a neverending gift.  My heart warms over and over- 28 years after I met you.  I would certainly not be the same person I am now if it weren’t for you.  You really shaped me…I pray that you know how much I love you.

We’ll be together again someday…eating a feast with Papa and Omi and everyone…we’ll all be there eating bread and delicious soup and dumplings.  I know you are there now, and I pray that you watch over me and guide me as I go through life.

Thank you for your neverending gift.
