TAKE CARE OF EACH OTHER...READ SPOONS!!!

Ok all, this is straight from the heart. Today is a BAD DAY for me so bear with me..... I'm crying as i type!!!

3yrs ago TODAY my close cousin, father of 1, shot & killed himself. When I got there 5 mins later, & saw him like that, I cursed & hated him & couldn’t understand y he gave up on his kid, his family, his friends, me, himself! “Coward, pu$$y, hoe a$$ *****”…u name it I called it!

BUT, I kid u not, every year since, at about this same time, I get deceived by a friend or betrayed by someone I cared & trusted, & every year that these things happen 2 me it reminds me that although I DEPISE what he did….I now UNDERSTAND how events of life & nasty things we do 2 each other can make some of us cross that edge!

So every year instead of hating him, or letting the ugly things people do 2 me ALLOW me 2 hate MYSELF, I get this day 2 remind myself & all those around me…..Don’t EVER underestimate the power of the smile u give 2 a stranger, or that kind gesture 2 a friend, or extra 5 mins of convo u offer someone who needs an ear, cause that small gesture might be what that person needed that day, to help life seem a little more worth living. MORE IMPORTANTLY, don’t be so frivolous with ur own actions in life that u forget ur ability to affect those around u.

So every year I share this story that was sent to me by my pastor if u read none of this read the following!!!!!!!!


SPOONS:

A holy man was talking with the Lord one day and said,
"Lord, I would like to know what Heaven and are like."
The Lord led the holy man to 2 doors.

Behind the 1st door was a large round table.
In the middle of the table was a large pot of stew.
The people sitting around the table were thin and sickly.
They were holding spoons with very long handles & each found it
possible to reach into the pot of stew & take a spoonful,
but because the handle was longer than their arms, they could not
get the spoons back into their mouths.

The holy man shuddered at the sight and The Lord said, "You have seen ."

Behind the 2nd door, the room was exactly the same.
Same large round table, same large pot of stew.
The people were equipped with the same long-handled spoons,
but here the people were well nourished & plump, laughing and talking.

The holy man said, "I don't understand."
"It is simple," said the Lord; "it requires but one skill. You see,
they have learned to feed each other, while the greedy think only of themselves."


Do not value the "things" you have in your life - value "who" you have in your life....


Love u all and we should ALL take the time 2 be a little more HUMAN 2 one another!!!

Ya Girl Candy!

REST IN PEACE COUSY!

i've had several friends take their own life, one not even 2 weeks ago hung himself. He had just gotten engaged and was going to med school. I'll never know why he felt like he had no way out, but he is in a better place now. He is free from pain and i'm glad he found serenity

I spoke with several suicide counselors shortly there after to understand what I MISSED, and all of em said the same thing. SUICIDE is ALWAYS a final PLEA from that individual 2 gain attention, and believe it or not they even gave us a ton of signs of their intentions that we just didn't identify.

As far as peace and serenity, I really hope he's up there eating himself up for missing all the attention I am dying 2 give him and continue to show him every time i reflect on our great times together
