Life Is Fragile – Part 2: Handle With Care

“Life is fragile: Handle With Care!”

This week’s blog is dedicated to my brother Claudious Henry as it was the tragedy that happened to him that I coined the phrase “Life Is Fragile: Handle With Care.”

This quote is to true: “We’re not guaranteed a tomorrow, so give it everything you’ve got.” Tim Cook

Why am I saying this quote is true, my brother went to the hospital last Friday, and the following Friday we got the call that he passed away.

Thus the words: tomorrow isn’t promised to anyone, life is fragile.

Life is fragile because one day we’re good and everything is going well, then the next day something tragic happens, and in this case, the tragic passing away of my brother Claudious.

We often live like we’re indestructible. As we go about our daily lives and routines, we’re not always remembering how fragile life is, and to handle it with care. With what happened with my younger brother, put things in perspective in a real different way, a way I never thought about before.

You can think, why bother accomplishing things, working productively to live our best lives when one day we’ll be gone from this earth, why bother? But looking at life from God’s perspective makes you think about your purpose here. We are all here for a reason, and thinking about and fulfilling our purpose makes it all worthwhile.

I went to visit my brother at the hospital on Saturday (the day after he was admitted to the hospital) and spent hours with him. We were talking about what we will do in our retirement years from our day job, reminiscing on our life, having a real good time, taking pictures, showing one another unconditional love. Then less than a week later, he is gone, life is fragile.

Our family are in shock, numb, don’t know what to say, no words, feel sick to the stomach. His life was taken away from him at the hands of the medical staff which is what makes it even harder.

How do we move on from this knowing that it could have been prevented? Knowing that if he had the proper care at the hospital, he would still be here.

We have to refocus, remembering how fragile life, and handle it with care so we can make the time for what matters and let go of what doesn’t, think about how short life is when compared to eternity. This should make us make the most of everyday. Now for first things first with dealing with my brother’s passing away.

The first thing is to celebrate his life. And in this case, the second thing is to get justice for him. We have to think about how he would want us to continue on, keeping his memory alive. It’s not easy, not easy at all. I am thankful that my family are close nit and can draw on one another’s strengths.

My advice is to take a good look at your life, analyze it thoroughly by looking within. We do this by self-reflecting. Looking at ourselves helps us to determine how we are living our lives in light of how fragile life is to handle it with care because the things we think and do determines if we value the fragility of life.

We have to not let the tragic that can occur suddenly be the driving force to make us realize how fragile life is. Let us always see the importance of life and how fragile it is.

Some things we need to always be doing is walk in love, we need to live in unconditional love with one another, forgiving one another, being loyal, treating others well, all by remembering that tomorrow isn’t promised to anyone.

My brother, Claudious, will forever be in our hearts!

There is always hope to remember the fragility of life, to handle it with care, and to always live our best lives NOW!

Thank you for taking the time to read this week’s blog, and know that there is always hope no matter what.
