Last nite I went to a screenplay reading with a friend of mine. The script was good and there was a nice little Q & A session afterwards.
My friend, V, (also a writer) recently lost her mother, so we were talking on the way to the train about it. She was telling me all about the funeral and what the family did. I was really inspired by what she told me. Rather than a traditional, sad, viewing and funeral, she and her family chose to honor her mother by celebrating her life with a “Remembrance”. They had her favorite music going, her favorite candy, the place was decorated…it was almost like a party. She said that thats what her mother would have wanted….I thought that was so beautiful and a wonderful way to honor the memory of her mothers life. I kinda think that if something happened to me, thats what I would want my friends and family to do…have a party, bring some oreos, dance up a storm, and have fun…
It made me think alot about how we see the things that happen in our life. One friend of mine told me last week, “God doesnt do things to us, He does things FOR us”….
just some food for thought…enjoy the day people!!!
