Every day is a new day and with everyday something different happens. I just came back from visiting my uncle who has days to live in the hospital. It was hard to watch him like that; when I looked at him he didn’t look like the man I knew. And it wasn’t like I was all that close to him; I barely saw him but the memories that I did have were nice…of a smiling man an happy man but a lost man.
We think that we have more than a life time on this planet and all the time in the world to right the wrongs that haunt our minds at night. My uncle’s life was a tragedy but it was a tragedy that he created and unfortunately he couldn’t change it either.
I hope in the end that all of those who knew him and loved will see that his time here on earth wasn’t wasted even if he we all didn’t agree with his life chooses. He can at least go to heaven knowing that his purpose here was for to take something from his life and to learn from his life mistakes.
My aunt his sister prayed that when he dies that God will open the gates of heaven for him and all his sins will be forgiven. To be honest I believe that the gates will be wide open and all those he has lost along the way will be there waiting for himwith open arms.
