On so many levels… we are celebrating life. We hope you are too! The fact that you are reading this means you have lived to see another day which means that God isn’t done with you yet! He has plans- big big plans for YOU!
On a much more solemn note we are celebrating the life of Susie’s sweet Uncle Lee today. If we learned anything from Uncle Lee it was to find joy in everything and to love unconditionally. “Tusie,” as Uncle Lee called Susie was a large part of her everyday life for so many years.
He brought so much happiness to her family’s life as he embraced every moment of his 82 years. In spite of his many handicaps, he was active everyday and never felt sorry for himself. None of the “woe is me” attitude for him. He never met a stranger and touched the lives of so many people . The way he lived his life showed time and time again that the simple things in life are indeed the most important things. It is with sadness but also great joy that Susie’s family celebrates his life today.
While celebrating a life that has ended, we also celebrate the future. The excitement and anticipation of what may be waiting in the days to come fill our hearts everyday. The knowledge that each day is a new day ripe with possibilities and joy is a source of hope as we all go through the mountains and valleys of life.
New life, a life well spent, and that which is ahead… there is always something to celebrate. We have a firm belief in celebrating every birthday. Some say it’s just another year- we say hallelujah for another year!! Let’s celebrate!
Whether you are celebrating a loved one’s life, a new life, the possibilities of your future, or another year of life, we hope you don’t take a single minute of it for granted. Live every moment to its fullest, and don’t take any of it for granted. Our health and life are blessings to be thankful for every day!
Here’s to a life well-lived!
