What a great article. Very inspiring. Saying "Yes" to living. Imagine that. Simple.
Wouldn't it be great if we all had Miss Norma's spirit.....even if we weren't 90 years old and diagnosed with cancer. However, I think it was because of her age and diagnosis that she had the willingness to say "no" to the medical path and "Yes" to life.
I can learn a lot of from Miss Norma - to let go each day, to live life to fullest, all while being aware that I am dying. No, I am not sick, but I am dying. In fact, we are all dying. We are all one day closer to death. This is not grim fact - it is just a fact.
Acknowledging death can lead one to really appreciating life - experiencing it all (good and bad, up and down). It is with this kind of wonderment for our daily lives that can lead one to a more meaningful and spiritual death.
