Words to Live By Wednesday


This week I wanted to do something different for my Wednesday post because what I wanted to say just didn’t exist in a pretty photo on Pinterest. My words for you this week are cherish, live and remember. In just this past week my uncle learned he had cancer and then passed within days, and through that came the realization that I needed to cherish the people not only in my life now but the people that made my life possible. I have spent the past two days looking through photos of the people that came before me and the people who have left while I was alive. It has never occurred to me how important it is to remember the greats and the great great greats who lived before me, but now I know the truth. So my words to you this week are please take the time to cherish every single person in your life dead or alive. Remember what made them special and share that will future generations. 

In remembrance of: daddy, grannie, nana, papa, uncle Michael, Bella, grace, Harry, Hilton, grandad, grannana, Daniel, Melissa, Steven, and all of the connolly’s, hartley’s, phinney’s, mckenzie’s, and bird’s before me.

    So sad. It' such a shame when someone gets cancer- do stay strong and feel free to take breaks out of your blog if need be. We'll all wait. God damn cancer, hope there's a cure one day! Xx Beauty Soup| UK Beauty Blog
