JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 344 :: let’s not forget we’re alive

14 Dec

We lost my Aunt Denita today.

I love my Aunties. All of them. They were like a circle of fairy godmothers holding my up, watching me grow up, lifting me up through my teens.

As if each had a little magic wand to teach me something special.
Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo.

They are so engrained inside of me. And today one died. As the phone calls came in and the news circled around the family, I felt a sadness circling me too. One of my fairy godmothers is gone.

As we wait to hear when the funeral will be, so we can make plans to gather up as families do, I am struck with a reminder of peak performance. It’s in the form of a song that came piping through my Spotify soundtrack tonight. Ironically it’s called Beautiful Day.

“When we all come together
this song will play
we’ll sing it’s a beautiful day
it’s gonna be a beautiful day. 

Oh, oh, my, my,
I’m learning to fly.
Hey, hey what’s that you say,
let’s not forget we’re alive.”

Peak Performance moment of the day:  Let’s not forget we’re alive.

Love you Aunt Denita.
Love you Aunties. All of you.
Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo.

More tomorrow.
