Word High July for 26 July 2016 Word pahimakas

Click here to learn more about this blogging challenge. 

Today’s word is pahimakas.  It means last farewell.  Wow, there is a word loaded with sadness.  It calls to mind the many loved ones, furry and human, who have gone on before us. 

There is a My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Episode called Filly Vanilli, where the pony Fluttershy gets a leaf that makes her sing in a very deep voice.  She enjoys the experience of getting to sing until the pony she was replacing, Big Mack, is well enough to sing again.  She then says, “I did not know the last time would be the last time.”  It is sad when we say goodbye to someone and do not realize that the last time would be the last time.

Say a very fond farewell to everyone.  You never know when the last time will be the last time.

This August 18th, in honor of my child-bride Suzanne’s birthday, we will be giving all of our books away free.  Please download and read these books.  We have had to change the way we make money here since I suffered three strokes back in May.   We no longer sell Avon door-to door, but you can still buy it on our website at https://smcclendon.avonrepresentative.com.  You can also help us by purchasing things from our Etsy store.

Special Notice

You can help us by downloading our books free.  Then, read them.  Every quarter, Amazon has a contest to determine which 100 authors in the United States have the most pages read.  If we make it into the top 100, we will share a part in a pool of money Amazon sets aside for the top 100 authors.

Please also give us feedback on our books and leave your honest review at Amazon.  We thank you.

  1. I think that if we did know, good-byes would be so different. I think they would take longer, and we'd go back into the house to "set a spell" whenever they said to us, "What's your hurry?"

    Love you.

    1. If we all lived like the last time we saw someone alive was going to be the last time we saw them alive, we would have a lot less fighting going on and a lot more loving.

  2. oh dear. thank you for your honesty for sharing this with us. <3

    1. Thank you. Suzanne and I have faced so much death in our lives that we are almost afraid to love. We try not to get attached to our little fur friends, but it happens anyway.

  3. Beautiful words David and a sentiment that reminds us never to take anyone for granted. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Thanks, Davy. This really hit home after I had the strokes. I realized that this life can end all too quickly.
