Yesterday, I was saddened to hear that a dear member of our family passed away. This lady was one of the few people who welcomed my father and uncle when they moved to the U.S. They've always told me sweet stories of how she reminded them of their mother. Each time I saw her, there was something undeniably noticeable which was that her husband was smittened with her. One of my favorite memories is catching him taking a selfie with her and in Farsi saying, "This is going to be a keeper for the books." After years of having children, grandchildren, marriages, sickness, and health, their love shined through anyone who came across them. To me, life is not so much about the years you've lived as it is about the legacy you leave behind. As said before, "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel..." Thank you for teaching us that love is eternal and lives on even after we are gone. Life is short. Take selfies with your loved ones.
Make each moment count and live in love over and over again
