Looking Back

Don’t look back it’s not where you’re going.  Don’t live in the past it’s past. Yesterday is a memory today is all that matters. You’ve probably heard these phrases but they may not matter to you.  You’re a live in the moment person or perhaps your focus  is on tomorrow. For anyone though who has lost a loved one looking back is the only thing you can do to hold on to what mattered most in your life.  This is for those of us left behind when our loved ones have moved on to high ground, so to speak. There is peace in knowing that they are in a better place and they are free from the pain & suffering.  They can run and fly and soar and their world now is limitless.  Everyone of us is grateful for that. We’re not feeling the same for ourselves. We try to be grateful for all we had.  We were lucky to have all those years with the love of our life.  We do all we can to be grateful for our lives at this moment even though this moment isn’t anything compared to what it used to be.  We get up and go through the motions of the day. Some days we can even laugh.  Some days we have fun.  Some days we’re not so successful…
