Passing the Purple Hat to You                                                                                              (In honour of women’s history month and in memory of Erma Bombeck who lost her fight with cancer.)

 
c

– by Erma Bombeck (written after she found out she was dying from cancer).

I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the earth would go into a holding pattern if I weren’t there for the day.                                  I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage..

I would have talked less and listened more.                                                                     I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained, or the sofa faded.                                                                                                                                I would have eaten the popcorn in the ‘good’ living room and worried much less about the dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the fireplace…          I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.                                                                                                                                                I would have shared more of the responsibility carried by my husband.           I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day because my hair had just been teased & sprayed.                                                          I would have sat on the lawn with my grass stains.                                                       I would have cried and laughed less while watching television and more while watching life.                                                                                                                                  I would never have bought anything just because it was practical, wouldn’t show soil, or was guaranteed to last a lifetime.                                                          Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I’d have cherished every moment and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was the only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.                                                                    When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would never have said, ‘Later. Now go get washed up for dinner.                                                                                         ‘ There would have been more ‘I love you’s’ more “I’m sorry’s.” But mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute. Look at it and really see it . . live it and never give it back.                                                                          STOP SWEATING THE SMALL STUFF!!!                                                                                                                                              Don’t worry about who doesn’t like you, who has more, or who’s doing what Instead, let’s cherish the relationships we have with those who do love us..

KEEP IT LIT! IN MEMORY OF . . .   (Raine, Meis, Doreen)

All you are asked to do is keep this circulating,  in memory of anyone you know who has been struck by cancer. A Candle Loses Nothing by Lighting Another Candle. Please Keep The Candle Going!  This is a disease which affects all families… no one is exempt!

    Ons maak soveel foute en ons betaal sulke hoë pryse vir daardie foute, maar dan, hoe anders sal ‘n mens dan voel asof jy werklik geleef het? Lekker dag vir jou!

    celia, dit behoort regtig hemels te wees om te staan aan die einde van jou lewe en te weet, ‘ as ek my lewe oor kan he, sal ek nie kan verbeter op wat agter my le nie. ‘
