The Wellness Universe Quote of the Day by Trudy Brooks

On the 25th of August, 2011, my world as I knew it fell apart. My dad passed away suddenly with a huge heart attack. He had been ill with heart failure for 11 years but kept himself fit and active despite his heart condition.
I had only seen him a few days before he passed away and we were laughing and joking as we always did.
Being an only child, when I got a call from home saying my dad was being rushed to the hospital – my daughter, husband, and I drove to the hospital immediately to meet my mum who had gone in the ambulance with my dad. We were all ushered into a family room while the Nurses and Doctors worked on my dad. We all sat there in fear, shock and disbelief, but we were hoping the hospital staff would come through to us saying, “We have stabilized him and will be moving him up to a ward.”
Just as those thoughts were rushing through my mind, a Senior Nurse came in and asked my mum to step out into the corridor as she wanted to speak with her. I went with my mum. The Nurse told us that there was nothing more that could be done for my dad, and that he didn’t have very long left, he was unconscious, and would die shortly. We all went into the room and spoke to dad, hoping he could hear us saying that we loved him, and 20 mins later he passed away. I remember standing at his bedside thinking I had lost the best dad in the world, and I felt orphaned in some strange way. I knew my mum would be heartbroken as she met my dad at 16, married him at 18, and had a wonderful marriage of 48 years. He was her one and only boyfriend who she married, and he was her rock and her soul mate.
Time went by, and I kept meeting people, neighbors, old family friends, and people I didn’t really very well at all, but all who knew my dad. Every single person I met told me how my dad had helped them in their times of need. These were all things my dad had never told me about and my mum hadn’t either. I was amazed at what extremes my dad had gone to to help people! He had given and given his whole life, asking nothing in return. I was, and still am so very, very proud, blessed and grateful to have had such a wonderfully kind and modest man to be my dad. My mum is the sweetest and gentlest lady I’ve ever known, so I picked my parents wisely before I incarnated into this life time.
So I wrote this Quote of the Day for my precious dad who has taught me that it’s what you have done to help others in this life time that is remembered. My dad has made me so proud and left a legacy of love, kindness and light, and I hope that I can also make my daughter proud when it is my time to go.
We aren’t remembered for the things we didn’t do, we are remembered for the love and the light we leave behind by being a good, kind and honest person, and one that people always remember in a loving way.
