Remembering Shakila…

Remembering Shakil…

When I thought my South African skies were darker with all that is the COVID-19, my world turned black momentarily when I heard of the passing of a loved one to Cancer.

Sometimes, we need a mask to mask our words.
Sometimes, we need to stem the bitterness that explodes.
Always, we need to love…albeit silently.
Always, we need to walk in prayer and in faith.

Never though…
“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.
Be the living expression of God’s kindness:
Kindness in your face,
Kindness in your eyes,
Kindness in your smile”
Mother Teresa

Rest well Shakil,
Always, I loved you.

  1. I’m so sorry for your loss. It’s hard to lose a friend. There’s something about these times and turning our attention to eternity that makes our perspectives change – like the song of the birds and a good “quiet time” to reset our hearts.

  2. When the passing of a loved-one happens the void seems immense. Soon, there will be memories, ever so short, that the void will transform into the feelings of being one with loved-ones. This could be the basis of prayer and assist in the process of accepting the void. You will be at peace before you realize the change in your life. This is for you.
