With the summer over – if in fact it really began – I am buy cialis 5mg realizing what an incredible few months it has been. Many high points and also a few low points.
One thing that happened to put life into perspective was the death of my close friend’s beloved son, Christer Jebsen.
He was killed in a tragic road accident. A young 20 year old life snuffed out instantly with no warnings and no good byes.
The following words have been taken and adapted from an email sent out by his mother days after his death.
Christer lived his life to the fullest. He died too young but he really, really lived, every minute, every day of his life. Two weeks before he died, he told his mother that if he were to die now, he would have no regrets.
He had accomplished so much and was so grateful. They talked about how much more there was for him and he knew that. Yet he was full of appreciation of what he had experienced and accomplished in his life so far.
Christer died doing what he loved the most. Getting his adrenaline kick from riding his 1200 ccm Kawasaki. It was his choice. A choice his family did not agree with, but he was free to choose. And they respected that choice.
Christer was an amazing big brother, leaving behind 5 brothers and one sister. They are shattered and heart broken.
Through out the whole group of his friends there is a new awareness to treasure life and make better choices.
My belief is that no matter how bad, there are always gifts somewhere if we chose to look. We are already living in one of the gifts – being alive. Christer’s life was a precious gift to his family. His death has highlighted the gifts that can come from such heartbreaking tragedy. By looking at the gifts that he has left behind also gives a higher sense of honour to his death. The precious days that I spent with his family after the accident, wrapped in love and sharing treasured memories are a gift that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
I hope that what Christer has left behind, inspires and guides others in their choices.
We are all free to choose how we live our life. What gifts do we give and receive along the way? And what gifts are we ignoring?
