Celebrate Life Now

Celebrate Life

I was listening to K-Love yesterday and a listener called in and told them about how they celebrated the life of someone they love BEFORE they died. The lady that called in talked to us about her mother who had terminal cancer and knew she didn’t have long. She’d heard the idea on K-Love and decided it was something that she wanted to do for her mother. So, she planned out the event to take place on her mother’s birthday. She wasn’t sure how it would turn out, but she knew it was something she wanted to do, no matter how many people showed up. They expected maybe 15 people to show up, but 65 people attended and it was such an amazing and positive experience for everyone. Her mother was able to be surrounded by people who loved her, who celebrated her life and all she’d done. Since then, her mother did pass away and I can imagine it’s been hard for her and her family. But, she said that doing this for her mother is something she’s so glad she did. Her mother got to know just how important she was, how much she was loved while she was still here.

I really liked hearing that story, moved me quite a bit. I know there are many times when doing something like this isn’t possible, but then, who says we should wait till someone we love is dying to celebrate their life? I try throughout my life to show those I love how much I appreciate, respect, and love them. Though, when someone we know is dying, I think it especially a good idea to throw a celebration of their life. Why not give them something to remember in the days they have left that will touch their heart? Life is precious and all too fleeting. We should make the most of it and part of that is showing those we adore how much they mean to us, how important they are. I wanted to share this story and idea with all of you. Perhaps even one of you will be touched by this, perhaps even one of you will take something from it and then share your own story of celebration, life, and love with others so that your story will then inspire others to do the same. All it takes is one person and the willingness to share their story to ignite the flame.

  3. What a wonderful idea. Loved this. Thank you so much for your visit of my post on Christian Blessiing today. I actually wrote a poem (my Peace, My Peace) about dying today on setyourpathsstraigh@wordpress.com. Truly, it came out of nowhere for me….but that is the way the Holy Spirit works. Blessings!

      That’s where most of my poems come from, not planned….just when I am moved to write something. 🙂
