Today I attended a funeral service for a sister that I rarely saw throughout these past few years. But when we would see each other it was always a blessing. Her name is Emily Young, Samoan decent, an independent woman to say the least and during her 45 yrs of life she lived with purpose. During her services I was reminded that despite being single and LDS life doesn't end there. Life is meant to be lived to the fullest, by loving people unconditionally and showing forth mercy where mercy is due.
It's only March 2014 and attending this funeral and sending love and prayers to the ones that I've missed year. It puts into perspective that life isn't just too short to hold grudges but that without constant awareness that forgiveness is essential in our day to day lives. We will slowly decay into a waste because we decided to be hardhearted and hold onto our pride instead of peace.
Thank you Em for reminding me of that today.. As you fly with angels rest in love! Love you!
