Celebrate them!

In three days, it will be five years since the accident that claimed my parents’ lives. Five years seems at times to be a very long time. Other times, it is like yesterday. A couple of months ago, I realized that I was sliding into deep grief again, and I did not want to do that. I decided instead to celebrate the love I shared with Mom and with Pop. For the 82 days between the time I came to this conclusion to the anniversary, I have posted some special memory or characteristic of Pop or Mom each day on Facebook. I have celebrated traits and gifts that they passed on to me. Sometimes, tears flood my eyes as I type the recollection. Other times, I can’t stop smiling. It is good to remember the love, the laughter, and the life we shared. Even in grief, celebrate.
