We’re in the last few hours of 2016 and I’m reflecting on the past few weeks and the many stars that have died. It’s also a focus on the Superstars that die during the year and well, 2016 took an abundance of famous people from Harrington to Bowie to Henderson to Wilder to Reynolds and so many in between.
I have to ask, what about the other Stars that many lost this year? These are stars in our lives, they may not be famous to you or me but they were Superstars to their families.
The focus is always on the famous names, of course it is, they lead famous lives. We see their names and faces everywhere. We follow what they do in the newspapers, on TMZ and all of Social Media.
However, the other Stars in our Lives are also famous to us. They lead lives that are inspiring and caring and are needed by each of us on a personal level. We see their names and faces everyday and everywhere. We follow them on Social Media too.
When we lose Stars our Personal Stars it’s heartbreaking. When the end of the year comes and everyone goes on and on about the Ultra Famous that died, it can feel terrible, what about my Star?
I’m here to tell you that I remember your Stars, your family members and they mattered not just to you but to those around you as well. They were inspirational to others and many people miss them and think of the moments shared and the family they left behind.
At work 1 co-worker lost his mom AND Dad, another’s Mom passed away and yet another’s Father In-Law left the physical world. My friend and co-worker’s Mom, Brother, Uncle and Cousin died and I watched her heart break each day. On Christmas Eve a co-worker died in a car crash going home. My friend Kelli lost her Dad, Eric’s brother passed away and a few others loved ones died.
This isn’t a post to make you sad as we head into the New Year. It’s to remind you that there are Stars Everywhere! We are all special to those around us and we are ALL FAMOUS and Inspirational! Every person matters and should be and will be remembered no matter if they’ve been featured on TMZ or Page 6.
I’ve always had this idea since I was little that when someone leaves this physical world they go to dance in the sky and when it becomes nighttime, they are the stars in the sky. So, when you lookup and see that sparkle, it’s someone’s loved one as the Star in the Sky.
2016 adds many more Stars to the Sky …… Glenn, Alan, Waylon, Flo, Zsa Zsa, Ron, Abe, Carrie AND Mom, Dad, Bro, Uncle, Cousin, Friend too! The Stars in the Sky are the Stars from our Hearts xo
