Rest In the Clouds


Meet Zach Sobiech

We are all shining stars in this world.  Sometimes we don’t realize the impact we can make if we just let go and embrace who we are!  Being a conduit of love, happiness and peace ~ sharing of ourselves ~ multiplies this gift to infinity and beyond.  Last night I read about the passing of Zach and found the video below about him.  If you have a few minutes, be inspired by his life and the way he spent his last days.  Zach turned to music to remind his family of  how much he loved them!  Doesn’t it make you think about the legacy you leave behind?

Get out of your comfort zone and…

Shine On!


I just read the Daily Prompt and the songs sung by the extraordinary young man above certainly are a bittersweet gift to all of the hearts that he touched during his lifetime, especially his family, friends and loved ones.  I am sure that hearing his voice and seeing his videos makes them nostalgic.  I know that for me, I have 2 voicemail messages on my answering machine from my Dad last year.  One is when he missed my son’s birthday.  He told him that he loved him.  The second message was for me because when Dad was in the hospital and I was helping him with his business at the time.  He told me that he appreciated what I was doing for him, he was proud of me and he loved me.  What a true treasure to keep!  It’s all I have…a bittersweet gift.  Big hugs to all of you today and everyday!  Keep shining! xo

  3. Reblogged this on A Grateful Man and commented:
    Thank you for sharing this moving story, Misifusa. When I saw that it was 22:21 minutes long, I hesitated to watch it, as like most others I have a lot to do today. I’d have missed something very special if I’d not decided to stop and experience all of the love, beauty, joy, and inspiration it contained. Zach Sobiech was a very special person indeed. As are his family and friends. There were so many magical moments crammed into this video, and so much to learn about life, living, and love. I have a natural affinity for Zach. Perhaps it is because we share some things in common. Early in the video I was surprised to see that Zach had a long scar on the side of his chest. I recognized it, as I have two similar scars–one on each side–from the surgeries I had a month apart for my collapsed lungs. The other is that we’re both songwriters. I love how he said that songwriting is a way of expressing himself without having to burden anyone. Thank you for the way you’ve made the world better by being in it, Zach. I have no doubt that your spirit lives on.

  4. Russ, I love the you reblogged it. I love that you took the precious time to watch it and I love that you appreciated his story. It’s amazing how we connect with others, like you’ve done with Zach’s story…and how we’ve connected as well. Boy am I blessed to know you! ♥♥
    Thanks for reblogging his story…it was so special, wasn’t it? 🙂

  9. I know from my experience with my son that a short life can bring on more inspiration an thinking about what really matters than a long one. Its just so damned wrong that these inspirational young people have what they COULD BE stolen from them. It hurts to even think about it…beebee
