“Pain is a pesky part of being human, I've learned it feels like a stab wound to the heart, something I wish we could all do without, in our lives here. Pain is a sudden hurt that can't be escaped. But then I have also learned that because of pain, I can feel the beauty, tenderness, and freedom of healing. Pain feels like a fast stab wound to the heart. But then healing feels like the wind against your face when you are spreading your wings and flying through the air! We may not have wings growing out of our backs, but healing is the closest thing that will give us that wind against our faces.” ― C. JoyBell C.

July 3 2018.
Exactly a year ago today, you became an angel and I became the saddest human being. Fast forward to today and I have learnt so much from that experience. I’m a firm believer in everything happens for a reason but it’s been very hard to accept that the universe was right in taking you from our lives. I know that it’ll all make sense one day though. “Dear friends I’m leaving now, and the train is waiting by, to take me and my body over there, in the land of paradise, where there is no surprise, no sorrows, no worries, at all.” That’s the song that came to my mind after I saw you for the first time in the morgue and midway through my tears, I smiled. Somehow I believed those words, you were telling me that you’re okay, it’s better where you are, and I became jealous.
No one prepares you for death and life forces you to move on. I was so used to you doing everything for me and my family and with your death came certain responsibilities I didn’t know I had to deal with. I had to pick your outfit, your coffin, the service music, get your death certificate and so many things that I know if you were here you would’ve done with so much ease because you always got things done and I respected you even more.
I miss you every single day and my heart was so broken that I can actually feel the emptiness that you left me with. You were the most kind hearted, loving, funny, independent, ambitious human being I knew. I don’t recall you ever saying no to me, and if you did, you always changed your mind hours later. I was so angry at you and God for a while because I felt like the two of you didn’t let me in on your secret. My dreams became all about you and with every question I had, you found a way into my dreams and gave me an answer. Now I’m learning to understand that it wasn’t your choice and having you as my guardian angel isn’t the worst thing 😊
It’s very easy for this experience to make you depressed, and I was, but with the right support system, they give you reasons to live and accept that she lived her life to fullest, which by God she did, and so should you. RIP SHARON STONE❤️🥀
“No pain that we suffer, no trial that we experience is wasted. It ministers to our education, to the development of such qualities as patience, faith, fortitude and humility. All that we suffer and all that we endure, especially when we endure it patiently, builds up our characters, purifies our hearts, expands our souls, and makes us more tender and charitable, more worthy to be called the children of God . . . and it is through sorrow and suffering, toil and tribulation, that we gain the education that we come here to acquire and which will make us more like our Father and Mother in heaven.” ― Orson F.
