The Meaning of Life

I recently came across this reading and wanted to share this with you:

 

“Beyond work and love, I would add two other ingredients that give meaning to life. First, to fulfill whatever talents we are born with. However blessed we are by fate with different abilities and strengths, we should try to develop them to the fullest, rather than allow them to atrophy and decay. We all know individuals who did not fulfill the promise they showed in childhood. Many of them became haunted by the image of what they might have become. Instead of blaming fate, I think we should accept ourselves as we are and try to fulfill whatever dreams are within our capability.

Second, we should try to leave the world a better place than when we entered it. As individuals, we can make a difference, whether it is to probe the secrets of Nature, to clean up the environment and work for peace and social justice, or to nurture the inquisitive, vibrant spirit of the young by being a mentor and a guide.”

The Sound of the Sea

The Sound of the Sea

Here is another good book to help children deal with death and the grieving process:

The Sound of the Sea

Jacqueline Harvey & Warren Crossett 

Sam Sullivan remembers the precious times he spent with his mother before she became ill and went away.  With the love and support of his grandparents, he gradually overcomes his anger, bewilderment and grief and begins to understand that, although his mother is gone, she will always be with him.

Children’s Book Council of Australia Honour Book in 2006
