A Traggic Lesson


Today I would like to honor the life of Brittany Ewaskowitz.  Today would have been her 24th Birthday.  Brittany and Jessica were twins that grew up across the street from me while I lived on Emery St.  These little girls and their older brother Danny were very dear to me, like a child, a friend and a niece or nephew all in one.

I was asked to deliver the eulogy at her funeral this past spring.  When I was putting it together I found two quotes that Brittany had posted.  I took the liberty and made the two into one.  I believe it is a fitting lesson for today’s post.

Today, love those in your life a little bit extra and be grateful for the gift that they are.

Here are the quotes…

“Life is too ironic to fully understand it.  It takes sadness to know what happiness is.  Noise to appreciate silence and absence to value presence. Stop waiting for Friday, for summer, for someone to fall in love with you, for life.

Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for it and make the most of the moment you are in now.”

Happy 24th Birthday Brittany, I miss you.
