Linda is the host of Stream Of Consciousnesses Saturday and JusJoJan
Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “first thing.” Start your post with the words, “first thing” and go from there. Bonus points if you end your post with the last thing. Have fun!
First thing that a baby does when it arrives in this world, she gives a loud cry! Where am I? What’s this new place, open bright, and full of strangers. Where is the cozy womb, dark and comforting, which held me safe for so many months?
Then she adjusts, nurtured by her mom and family, and grows up to love this new bigger world. Life goes on and there comes a time when it ends.
Now it’s time to go back into a small dark space but it won’t be warm or cozy. It’ll be cold and hard earth.
We will all go through this cycle and there is a beginning and an end. But it need not end with death. We can leave good memories and deeds behind. People who knew us would remember us fondly and we can live in their hearts and minds.
