"HAPPY BIRTHDAY Bertta Howard Livengood Green
It's been 15 months since her passing and we all miss her playful spirit so much. She was an amazing woman who brought so much joy to everyone around her. I know she's continuing to have fun and creating JOY!
""The death of a loved one is like a cloud in the sky. When the cloud is no longer in the sky, it doesn’t mean the cloud has died. The cloud is continued in other forms like rain or snow or ice. So you can recognize your cloud in her new forms. If you are very fond of a beautiful cloud and if your cloud is no longer there, you should not be sad. Your beloved cloud might have become the rain, calling on you, "Darling, darling, don’t you see me in my new form?" And then you will not be struck with grief and despair. Your beloved one continues always. Meditation helps you recognize her continued presence in new forms. And our nature is the nature of no birth and no death…the nature of a cloud also. A cloud can never die. A cloud can become snow, or hail…or rain. But it is impossible for a cloud to pass from being into non-being. And that is true with your beloved one. She has not died. She is continued in many new forms. And you can look deeply and recognize herself in you and around you." - Thich Nhat Hanh"
