Good Mourning!

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! It’s probably a shame but I just realized that Memorial Day is day to celebrate those who have past and gone. So I guess I’ve never celebrated this holiday correctly. I normally just find somebody who is cooking and go over there house and hangout/ eat all day! However, yesterday I was invited to an online Memorial Day church service. At the beginning of the service and throughout the service they flashed pictures and funeral programs of people who died last year. They sang sad songs. It made me wonder why do people do that to themselves. If someone died and it was a sad occasion, WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU WANT TO RELIVE IT EVERY YEAR.

This made realize that in some way, people get joy and meaning from mourning the death of a loved one. I guess it’s feels good to just remember that person. Hmmmm?

I thought about it. I do enjoy remembering my loved ones. Almost every time we sit at the dinner table, we laugh and tell the stories of family members that have died. Not of their deaths but of their life. This made me realize that mourning the death of a loved one is good. The more you remember the life of the person the better you feel. It’s sad at first, but after a while you will get some type of joy and fulfillment from remembering. So I say Good Mourning!

Daily Affirmations: Today is an Amazing day. I feel good. I love my life. Every experience is an opportunity to learn and grow. It’s good to remember my loved ones. I am thankful for all that have gone before me. I am healthy, wealthy, whole, and complete. ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM. ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL. ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD. ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE. #IBlessMyWorldWithLove
