Life Is Beautiful

My husband and I have been watching the TV series, Tudors  for a while now. I find it very interesting since it talks about historical facts. This is about the Tudor Dynasty which ruled the Kingdom of England and its realms.


One scene that struck me (which I find relevant to our life) is when Catherine Howard, the King’s fifth wife,  was about to be executed. Catherine was beheaded after less than two years of marriage to Henry on the grounds of treason for committing adultery while married to the King. Before she died, she looked up in the skies and said, “Life is Beautiful.”  


Those words… As the saying goes, “You will never know what you have until it is gone.”

Through all the good and ALSO the bad, life is still beautiful. To be alive is a gift! Let us be grateful.
