EULOGY are usually great things you say about someone after they have passed on ... and therefore the person have no chance to hear what you say about them. What a waste!
So for a reflective moment, think of what you THINK your eulogy would be ...
Here is mine .. about me ... by me ...
He came with nothing.
He went away with love - not for what he has done but for what he has learnt.
In his process of learning, he has given us challenges, some we hate him for. some that brings a smile in our hearts. Flamboyant to a fault - not in dressing but in style.
Never know what NO is but understand when you said it.
We criticize his being, we hate his guts, we admire his determination and laugh at his impatience.
For whatever it is worth, he has brought a moment of hope in moments of despair; a moment of anger to reflect on moments of calm and appreciation, a moment of smile in times of need and pain.
We hate him for taking it all away now.
We love him for giving us a chance to experience it, with him.
Go forth my friend.
Bring more the next time you come around.
