Note from Anne Moss: I met Joanna in my suicide loss support group. Her husband had taken his life immediately after he missed the signal that their son’s respirator had stalled and died as a result. She lost both sons to health issues and her husband to suicide.
We are all really the same
We all stand in a line
Waiting for that unknown moment.
We may think our lives are unique but our deaths are already designed.
We will all breathe our last breath one day…
We will all be in line
To be call home
We never really know when our time will be called in that line
While you wait
Take time to talk to a stranger
Get to know the cashier you see every morning
Keep waving at the neighbors even if they don’t wave back
Say I love you to your friends and family
Hug your partner
Donate your time to helping others
Step out of your comfort zone
Make somebody feel special
Make someone smile
Dance in the kitchen
Laugh out loud
While we wait in line….
Make a difference.
