Hello -here it is Tuesday already! Goodness, time flies. Yesterday was an absolutely beautiful day - full of sunshine and warmth. Got to be outside and get some things done. This morning it is wet, wet, wet!!! Gray and gloomy and did I say wet? Going to be this way pretty much the rest of the week. No more outdoor work this week.
BUT as I was 'pondering' I thought how fortunate it is raining. If we were to receive snow at the rate they are predicting rain this week - well, we would have between one and two feet!!!! So I guess rain is fine!
Yes, it is. Another thing I have been pondering. Everyone keeps saying 'when things get back to normal'. This IS normal. Life changes everyday. Today will never be like yesterday.
Life events happen and change everything we know. We lose loved ones, friends, we move, we get older, we change, people marry and divorce, the world changes.............
So normal - well, that is kind of irrelevant.
I think the only place we can sort of content with - is our home. We have the ability to keep our home the way we want. This is our little world. Beyond that - really no control. I think much of what happens and what we see and are told is just a big illusion that "someone" wants us to believe. There are powers that try to control actual physical events on this earth, and they are not always for the good of US!
I am aware of world events - but I have to distance myself too. It will drive you crazy.
I can control this little piece of real estate that I live on and that is where I am happiest and where I am most content.
Sounds simplified I know. But it is what I believe. I have faith in God - not men.
We all have to do what makes us happy.
I try to do good and help where and when I can. I pray for all. I try to spread happiness and goodwill. I love deep. I am loyal. I enjoy what God has put in my life.
People will not always remember what you have said or what you have done. They will remember how you made them feel!!! Do what you can to be kind and make others smile and have a good day. Be the ray of sunshine in someone's day.
I know we all only have so much time on this earth. 19XX - 20XX. Really the day you came in and the day you leave is not so important. It is all about the dash in the middle. That is what is important.
All the stuff you do. All the smiles you give. All the hugs you give. All the love you spread. All the good deeds you do. All the joy you give. All the prayers you pray. EVERYTHING in the middle is the IMPORTANT stuff. Live life and do it with all your might!!!!
Living is important.
We have each and everyone already had our "worst" day so far - and yet here we are. We have persevered.
We will have more bad days - but if all we do is remember the bad days, we are doing an injustice to all the good in between. Honor all that happened good. Honor the lives that were LIVED. Honor the blessings received. Honor all the joy and happiness.
Live your life and live it well! That is what you really want to be remembered for, isn't it?
Have a blessed day my friends.
