And so we live . . .

Thursday, October 10, 2013

Ok, so I know it has been over a year since my last blog. You're right thinking I must have fallen off the face of the earth.

I've been like a voyeur though, always lurking around somewhere. No, seriously, I feel like I've gone through the eye of a needle and it's true what they say, whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Out of brokenness comes amazing things. Now I can use the lessons I've learned and understand that even negatives have a purpose. They have brought me to my moment of truth. Don't you think that's rare?

The story behind what I just said has changed me from the inside out. That's really the only way you can be changed anyway . . and I feel like I'm sitting on an active volcano getting ready to blow.

It's all good . .. I'm good . . .getting better all the time. So much to share. Love all you attentive SP buddies. You're the best, always stopping by my little place in cyber space. Hey look at that .. I made a rhyme.

Hope you are blessed and loving life. You deserve it you know. . . emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Wow. Another blog of yours I like. There's a pattern here that I'm a-likin'. ;)

Your words weigh 10 lbs. Trials can be hell but when we can find the lesson in them, it makes the ride easier. Life really is agony and ecstasy, both. Thanks for your candor. Your blogs do brighten my day. (So, when is the next one? Hint hint.)

    Perhaps it is our age, or the number of years we have been in the same relationship, or the age of our kids... I don't know, but I am in the exact same place you find yourself.
But we learn to stand in our own truth, and face everything. Strength is garnered from that alone.

    It has been nice seeing your status updates and now your blog message. Life sidetracks all of us at times and causing us to deal with things other than SP. Yeah, believe that. emoticon But most come back eventually to enjoy the support and encouragement we receive from our emoticon s, like you! emoticon -- Lou

    Waking up this morning, I smile. Twenty-four brand new hours are before me. I vow to live fully in each moment and look at all beings with eyes of compassion.
-- Thich Nhat Hanh

Good morning!

What a treat to have YOUR presence among us once again!

Part 1: Life

The reticent volcano keeps
His never slumbering plan;
Confided are his projects pink
To no precarious man.

If nature will not tell the tale
Jehovah told to her,
Can human nature not survive
Without a listener?

Admonished by her buckled lips
Let every babbler be.
The only secret people keep
Is Immortality.

-- Emily Dickinson

    So glad you are OK! Life can be a bit rocky at times. You are among the few that learn lessons from the negative and remain positive. Kudos!!
