Sharing philosophy

My mother's friend Bella died today.  I was sad and asked my mother what she died of.  My mother said, " Diane, why are you asking ridiculous questions...Bella was 102.  But, said I...she was clear minded and sat on the porch and smiled and had quality of life...  I do not like this.  My 90 year old mother is busy now making a funeral poem for Bella and her family.  She is hunched over her computer with her Parkinson's pecking out a joyful poem that will make people happy.

My quote of the day is from G.K.Chesterton.  "I have seen the truth, and it makes no sense."

I think that is how all of us would like to leave our life, with clarity of mind and happy days. We don't need to get sick and linger to die. I'm sure it is hard for your mother to lose her friend though.

You are right Wanda...so right, but loss is tough. My mother has lost so many, but keeps plugging on. I need to take a page out of her book, she has the best spirit.
