Why?

Whew...... for some reason Whitney's death has really got a hold of my thoughts. I'm sure a lot of it is because every time you turn on the TV, or listen to the radio you're either seeing or hearing Whitney. I find nothing wrong with this, but it does keep it extremely fresh in your mind. God bless her soul.

Last night in bed while trying to fall asleep I found my eyes tearing up as I thought about my own mortality. There's no doubt in my mind that Whitney's death has brought this to the top of my thoughts. I was thinking as I lay there...I don't want to go. I don't want to miss so many things in this life. I believe in God and heaven, but I guess I'm just scared. Most of us have no idea what our expiration dates are. All I know is I want mine to be at the least, the century mark.

I've thought many times when famous people or friends have passed away... why then do we hear how great they were? Why then do we hear all the cute or funny stories about them? Why then do we hear about how much they will be missed? Why the touching eulogies now? Why don't we say all the good stuff to them and about them while they're still breathing deep and often? We're not nice enough to each other...why? Here's to making it to 100!
