I've found that is "ok" to move along the winding road alone but it takes bravery and determination and I have to admit that at times I feel lost and alone and weary.
Bravery is a BIG word, it takes a lot to say that word and even more to LIVE that word everyday.
Di was brave, she lived bravely, she loved bravely, she worshiped bravely and she echoed bravery to all that surrounded her. Di planted her roots firmly and she lived with convictions even along her tough road in the fight of her life against the cancer that invaded her body.
Over the years since we lost Di things have changed and there are so many more people that I have recognized that are fighting the fight of their life, just as Di did. Such an insidious disease that takes our people, our kin, our loves and literally our breath away.
If I could just have 'one more' moment with Di...that has been my feelings since we lost her. I found this songwriter who wrote from the passions of his heart and soul about 'One More' when he himself was diagnosed with cancer and his songwriting abilities were poised to not just write a song but instead to write the song he was living in the moment. No made up stories, no false pretenses, just pure, raw emotion while in the fight for his life. Passion is what fuels each and every one of our lives and when there is a bump in the road, take the lead and let your voice be heard such as he did.
