I recently found out that a woman I went to high school with died a while back. We weren't BFFs, but I really enjoyed spending time with her. Both of her parents were deaf, so she had a good command of sign language. She'd put on some music and dance while signing the words. It was truly beautiful. A bit like a hula dance. She was such a great person.

One time, when I was more depressed than usual, my mom put some tiny flowers in a tiny antique bottle she'd found. The bottle was embossed with the word, "Smile." I still smile when I look at that little bottle.

My dad was always trying to keep me smiling and seeing the lighter side of life. When I had relationship troubles he would acknowledge what I said and then tell me about what my mother was saying to him. He always made me feel that we were in some kind of club together where we were both going through hard times, but it was all part of life. His smile was a comfort to me.

Thanks jaynedough for starting this memory chain!

Thanks for posting this, especially today! It would've been my dad's birthday today and I miss him so much!

My sister, before she died, became closer to me. I know that it's because she was suffering and had no one else, and I'm happy I could've been there for her. It's like it came full circle because we were really close for a while, and then we grew apart, and then we came together again, albeit through texts and calls long-distance. I feel like at least I have something.
