As it is in death, it is more so in life. We share.
Death brings us together to share our memories and grieve, death brings us together to laugh, to cry and to carry on with life.
Comments I heard yesterday while looking at the memory board were, "oh, there he is with his sister when they were kids", "look at that, I remember that Halloween costume", "he was doing what he loved doing", "I just can't believe he is gone", "it was so sudden".
We in blog land share our virtual lives with one another, we share training tips, we share training horror stories...
we share concerns for our children and grandchildren, we share concerns for one another when severe weather strikes us, whether it be Texas or eastern seaboard...
we share different lifestyles from Rome to Oahu, we share cooking tips from Belgium to Brisbane...
we share llama mauling, whitehead popping, speedy racers, to trashtastic topics from the Queen of Albany...
we share competitive cycling stories from Ottawa, Iowa to Queensland.
we share the excitement of someones first Iron Man to someones first try-a-try, to someones first half marathon and someones first marathon, we share!!!
We share our stories, our lives, our insecurities, our challenges and our triumphs...we share ourselves to people we may never meet, with people who we look forward to meeting and with people with whom we've met through this virtual world of ours.
It boils down to the common bond all of us have. It is the commitment to share a little bit of ourselves everyday, to laugh, to cry, to kick ass and tell someone to "bite your ass".
Thank you for that!!

Life's fun if you don't weaken,
