I attended two wakes in July. It was sad. Both deaths were so sudden. They were relatively young at 39 and 42. It was a reminder for me to take care of my health. One day, my body will catch up on my bad eating habits.

My aunt and I had a discussion this morning. She was sharing what she learned from watching a show about money, savings and investment. An expert said something about setting aside a third of your monthly salary for savings and divide the remaining amount into 4. The quotient should be your weekly budget. My aunt was quick to do the math and she realized, her money was not enough. We had a good laugh at our discussion. I guess she just has to earn more. I remember reading about Timothy Sykes and how he was able to invest his money through penny stocks. Tim Sykes was still his 20’s when he started investing. I believe this Chinese proverb also applies to investing: “The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago. The second best time is now.”
The sad events of July was trumped with two happy ones. I had godmother duties to two cute boys. I always feel honored when friends ask me to be the godmother of their babies. Godparents are the child’s second parents.
Yesterday, my friends welcomed the birth of their first child. What a sweet blessing to end July!

No, that is not my friends’ child. 😀 The photo is too cute not to share.
A friend found this beautiful video about death and shared this on Facebook.
As they say, death comes like a thief in the night. No one know when or how but one thing is certain…we will all have to go sometime, at the appointed time. There will always be sadness at losing people we care about. Parting entails some degree of pain…but life goes on.
i have once read that there is still beauty in death. it still remains a mystery to me and it still scares the living daylights out of me. i’m scared to dwell into it…the loss and the sadness. the thought is overwhelming.
Oh no. I hope I did not make you sad.
I’m afraid to be sick, but I’m not afraid to die. Life is indeed unpredictable. That’s why we should live life to the fullest as if it’s our last.
True! Live life the best way we know how. 😀
youre right after all we have one life to live, why waste it to sadness?
Life is so short. Enjoy and get the best out of it while it lasts!
Death is part of the cycle of life. Birth-Death-Birth.
I attended a funeral at the beginning of July too 🙁 *sigh* Such is life :/
I guess we can only find it in ourselves to find something that will give us peace of mind when we’re facing death. Whether it’s our own or our loved ones.
Gosh, I hate funerals. But what can we do, all of us will eventually die.
But you’re right the picture of that baby is too cute to not share!
sometimes those investment tips are so ideal and aren’t suitable for us. a way to do it is just save as much as you can. 😀
Birth and death is a part of live. Best to live life to the fullest.

death is not something to mourn but to celebrate the life of that person.
it is so painful to lose someone when that someone is your child.. 🙁
When someone leaves the physical world, another person will also be born. Really true, it’s the cycle of life.
