Yesterday afternoon I read the sad news about the young actress Brittany Murphy passing of a cardiac arrest, not only she was beautiful, talented and young lady (she was my age, 32), but also a daughter, sister, wife and friend, to somebody that will miss her dearly.

Regardless of the reason why she passed away, my mother always says, "it only takes to be alive in order to die". No matter your age, gender, skin color, social status or anything else. We are put into this world to live life to the fullest and then to die, as dying is the ultimate answer to everything, the passing to a better place, a place where everything that you can't come to terms with in life, will bring that to your soul.

So while a young Hollywood actress full of hopes, dreams, projects, success and a whole life ahead, suddenly dies, on the other side, yesterday, I came to find out that my grandmother (which is around 91 yrs old and has been sick for a couple of years after having a stroke), is very delicate now and some of my family member have decided to put her in a hospital for somebody to take "better" care of her?

Why is it us humans are so attached to this life? (which in many cases, like my grandmother's state, don't think is really worth staying around for very long).... No matter how much we are attached to our life, we are all going to die and our best hope should be for a sudden natural death and not a tragic accident or a crime.

So while a young soul goes off, an old, wise and beautiful soul is still around, after having had a wonderful long life as a daughter, sister, mother, wife, friend and specially grandmother. On this Christmas time I reflect in both life's and pray for them and many more that need to find peace during life and when closer to God.

Have a great week!

RIP indeed. She will be missed by many. So shocking to hear of someone so young, though, apparently, it is not uncommon! I just think everyone should live to be 90 or something.

Yes, very sad about BM - sometimes there seems to be no apparent rhyme or reason. In the book Embraced by the light, Betty J. Eadie gives a beautiful account of how other peoples destinies have an influence on our own and it will teach us valuable lessons in life. We go through both joyous times and times of hardship, but in times of hardship we can build a strong character and I believe that that is essentially what life is about... how well we resond to lifes challenges and forming up a glowing indestructible character that will light up the path on the other side.
But yes, may Brittany R.I.P.
