As you know from my recent post RIP True Friend, I’ve been going through a lot lately. To say the least I’m completely and utterly drained mentally and emotionally. Thursday was the viewing and yesterday was the funeral of a dear, departed friend who might as well have been family and during it something occurred to me. It amazed me at how many people one can touch throughout a lifetime.
As I said, the viewing was on Thursday and though I had to go later in the evening due to school, the funeral home was packed with people and apparently it had been that way from the very start. I had never realized how many people she touched throughout her life, but it really shouldn’t have surprised me.
It all makes me wonder how many people I’ve touched and connected with over the years. I mean, I know a lot of people. Heck! I know people all over the world, which is not something everyone can say. It’s just interesting and something people rarely think about or realize in my opinion. I know I didn’t think about it until I saw how many people attended both the viewing and funeral these past couple of days. Then you also have to consider and wonder how many people couldn’t attend the view or funeral due to one reason or another. How many more people are out there that she’s touched? How many more people are out there that I’ve touched and just don’t realize it?
It’s an interesting concept to think about. How many people have you touched and connected with?
Please leave comments and questions below; I’ll make sure to answer here or in a new post!
