Thinking of YOU, My Love!

Six years ago, today, my soulmate, the love of my life, passed from this life to the next.

People came to visit him all night long.

In the morning, the doctors said there was nothing they could do and it was just a matter of time. I asked if everyone had come in. His brother said they had.

All the family had come in to see him and had gone back to the waiting room. All night, everyone came and no one went home. They were all there for him. They were all there for me.

Joe and I had spoken at length about what we wanted when we passed. Each of us had asked each other to not be kept on life support. So, as always, I was prepared to make sure his wishes were followed.

I asked the doctors to take him off life support.

The doctors asked, “Are you sure?” Without hesitation I said, “Yes.” When you love someone, you respect them and their wishes till the end.

They agreed but said they had a procedure to follow. They would start it right away and would come back as soon as they could.

All night I was by Joe’s side, holding his hand as he seemed to look at me with his eyes half opened. I told him not to worry, that they would come back soon.

Soon after I said that, the nurses came. Joe’s heart had stopped. Once again, he had proven his love to me. Joe stopped his heart at exactly that time to protect me. Although, I was willing to carry out his wishes, he did not want me to live with that decision.

We held hands all night as he held on until all the family had come in to see him. And, at 7:08 AM, he let go, proving his love to me till the very end.

On this day and always! I think of you, My Love! Thank you for continuing to love me, protect me, and care for me the way you do. I Love you till the end of time and beyond!

Start Again, Not Over! 


Pay attention to the people who have been and are in your life today. Have any of them stopped their hearts for you? Have you stopped your heart for them? In other words, have they loved you so much that they have made sacrifices for you? Have you loved someone or some people so much that you have made sacrifices for them?


Make the intention to feel blessed and grateful for having them in your life. Make the intention to thank and show your gratitude to those who have loved you that much. Make the intention to express and show the people you love how much you love them.


Take action today, now! Take a minute, close your eyes, breathe deeply, and think of the people who have loved you and the people you have loved this much. Feel their love for you. Feel your love for them. Let all that love, all that beautiful vibrational energy, flow through you, fill you up with life. And now, send it out to them and the entire universe. See all that love embrace, cleanse, heal, comfort, and fill everyone and everything with unconditional love, peace, joy and happiness. Take a deep breath. Open your eyes. And now, bring life to this love. Live it. Feel it and express it with words and actions today and always.

Is there someone in your life who would stop their heart for you? Would you stop your heart for someone in your life? Who would that be? Tell them today and share with us below. We would love to hear from you…


  1. What a beautiful reflection. It makes us realize a lot about our lives and what we take for granted. Sometimes, we wait till our loved ones pass away to realize how much we love them. On the other hand, expressing our feelings and appreciating our love ones helps us live happy and and healthier lives.

    • Thank you, Martha! I’m glad you liked it. Well said! Yes, appreciation leads to happy, healthy lives. That is what the SANO Way of Life is all about. Enjoy your life and your loved ones in it! Have a Happy SANO day!
