Funeral or Celebration

Today I was reminded about the difference for some people in a funeral service verses a celebration of a person’s life.

I made the comment that I had a funeral in the morning and a wedding in the afternoon. Then I said, these are two totally different emotions!

A wise person reminded me, today was not a funeral, it was a “celebration of a life.”

I stand corrected…and my emotions changed to energy versus a weighty fatigue.

That was a wonderful reminder!
