I was going to translate it, but I'll leave the fun up to you ;)

I went to a memorial service today which was a real bummer. I've never been to a funeral for someone younger than myself and it was such a strange feeling, our lives are so delicate and can be taken so quickly. It can be difficult working in the supportive field because you care so deeply for so many people, it's hard to let it all go when the time comes.

I use 'sign' every day at my current job and it's become so much a part of my daily communication that I sometimes don't even realize that I'm doing it. Last night while at the grocery store, I had called down the aisle to Scott and when he didn't understand what I was saying, I signed it out....which only made things more complicated...sometimes I even sign to complete strangers, most often it's "thank you". It's amazing how quickly new skills can become habit.

    This is awesome. I also sign "thank you" the most out of habit to random strangers. :)

    I used to be an interpreter, so I do the same thing. It's hardest with my closest friends who don't know signing. Esp. when I only sign with one hand and they don't have a clue what I'm doing, much less saying!

    So sorry for your loss.

    This is the most thought provoking tattoo I have ever seen. Whenever someone asks about the tattoo there is a really good reason behind it. And it makes you seem witty.
