The tour is almost over. Are you as blown away by the talent as I am? I feel like I have the best bloggy friends, but you know… we always say that. Dia de los Muertos has kicked off today. If you are fortunate enough to be in a region that celebrates it, be sure to stop by a festival to see the altarsa, dancers, adornments, and enjoy the foods and music. It is a very rich time, and many of these people just love to share their stories about their family members who have passed on if you take the time to speak with them. Since most of us are mothers, we all know how important our children are to us and how absolutely gut wrenching it is if they pass on before us. So today is the day we remember our children we have lost. The offerings will include toys, sweets, colorful clothes and paper, dancing, singing, and playful little jokes. It is never easy to grieve a child, but I think this is a way that helps parents deal with it, feel like they have moments still with their child, and get a glimpse at the joy their short life provided them. Death is a very hard topic for my husband’s side of the family, and I sometimes wonder how it would be if they had an outlet like this to express their love for ther loved ones. It feels like a very healthy way to remember them without allowing grief to take over your life. Plus, it addresses death in a healthy manner reminding us that death occurs all the time and takes all ages so we should enjoy our life with our family and friends, and we should realize that death is what we make of it.
