Feature Friday: April 18, 2014

The Feature Friday Hop is a blog hop …. with a bit of a twist … and it’s main mission is to share great content – but not just your own!

It runs every week (Friday through Monday) – so there’s always plenty of time (dear bloggers) to get your wrap-up written and linked up.

To enter and add your Feature Friday post to the hop and join in on the fun, you’ll find the rules and the linky beneath my featured post below.

And now without further ado, here is my FEATURE FRIDAY HOP entry for this week:

Life In The Dash Lane

My husband and I attended the funeral of a 96-year-old woman the other day. The room where the service took place was filled to capacity and people spilled out into the lobby of the funeral home. There weren’t enough chairs available to seat everyone and many were left standing when the service began.

One half of the funeral attendees were family members. This woman had lived a good long life. She had married and raised three sons. They had all married and had children and their children now had children of their own. She was also the oldest of nine siblings who had all married and had children. 

The other half  in attendance at the funeral were friends and acquaintances – people this woman had met and impressed along the way of her long life. And there were many!

My husband and I had arrived early for the funeral and were seated, and as I sat waiting for the service to begin, I was struck by the overall feeling in the room. It was all around me. It was on the faces of all who were there, and it was what was also in my heart. We all as one seemed to be thinking and feeling the exact same thing: The loss of this woman was tremendous and her 96 years of living were much too short. We all wanted more of her – more time to spend with her.

I found myself feeling completely awed and humbled by the situation. How does a person incite such a reaction in people? How do you touch and positively affect the lives of the people around you so deeply and so profoundly that even after 96 years of living, they’re all still left feeling like it wasn’t enough?

It’s Dark In Here
