Yet, somewhere is that light. For we are all here to co-create, and this young man created with his pictures. So, we stand back in appreciation. Then, we look at the message of alcohol-related death, though  stinging…perhaps it can ring true for those who walk this life in denial, saying it cannot happen to them-for indeed, it can.  We remind those in our lives who may slip, be careful, respectful and mindful of what you decide to put into your body.  Choose carefully, for we do not want to endure another goodbye. Our spirits may simply break.  Be thoughtful of yourself. Find the joy around you and share it. Reach out to a friend and share your dark corners, for we all have them. You are never alone.  So, let me end with hope that our lives are made richer by the gifts left behind and wiser from the lessons surrounding the goodbye. Blessings. Till the next time. -Rosie
