Let it Be

I had an up and down week, on one end of the spectrum I experienced a tragic event, on the other, two exciting events.

My beautiful cousin Maryann went on to be with the Lord. Her pure love and light that seemed too big for this world transcended.

She will be missed by many, and I mean many. The outpouring of love and support was touching. The  wake was jam packed as was the church service.

A Hard Days Night

On Friday night, I saw Sir Paul McCartney at Yankees Stadium. I didn’t really want to go after such an emotionally draining week but one of the best friends you could ever have said “trust me, you don’t want to miss this show, how often do you get to see one of the Beatles?.” And even though he wouldn’t get to go if I didn’t go (I bought the tickets) his motives were pure so I said “yeah let’s do it.”

We went.  And if I can sum it up in one word, it would be this . . . EPIC

Carry That Weight

Saturday night I played my first gig since the tragedy. It was special because it was at a local bar-restaurant which allowed my family to come. My cousins came, my brothers, their wives, my mom and dad, some friends, friends of friends, friends of family, really too many people to even count.

It marked the second time many of us saw each other within one week, only this time we were together for a joyous occasion. I was honored, humbled and emotionally touched by it all. There was laughter and love.

And in the End

Needless to say by Sunday I was left feeling drained and fatigued. But by the time the smoke cleared I was left with an even further defined perspective of what truly matters in life . . . people and time.

Too many people think money is the most important thing, and that money will make them happy, but they’re mistaken.  Money is a great tool yes, but money can be replaced. You can always find a way to earn money if you truly sucked it up, swallowed your pride and dug in, you would find a way. But, people and time, both are irreplaceable, therefore they are far and above the most important things we have in this short life.

Good Day Sunshine

Life is happening, it doesn’t matter if you’re a bystander or if you take action, things happen, both good and bad. Take a moment to appreciate what you have. Whether it’s your health, your family, your friends, a job, whatever you can think of, be grateful for it.

Please note that this blog is not meant for you to feel sorrow, pity or anything of that nature. It is to provide a reminder of how truly blessed we are and that we should never take anything or anyone for granted. And it is meant to inspire you to continue or start living the life you’ve imagined.

  • Big things matter, little things don’t, so keep your perspective.
  • Enjoy each moment, like this one, and this one and . . . : )
  • Life is short so stand tall and make the most of it.
  • Surround yourself with good people and create great memories.
  • Time is a valuable resource, invest it wisely.
  • Tell people that you love and appreciate them.

Free as a Bird

Maryann, I love you and miss you, this one is for you! XOX

You left a legacy of love . . .

    These are sound and sensible insights we would do well to acknowledge and put into practice each day.

    What appropriate words to mark the intense highs and lows in one week. The value of friends and family at those times is invaluable.
