Thanks Brazil and Egypt!
Lovely to see you
While the entire book is really great, (I’ve read it many times now as well as gifted it to friends).
I’d like to share with you my three favorite passages (there is one for every day of the year).
Hope you enjoy them too:
When someone is in your life for a reason, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up or out and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and it is now time to move on. Next!
When a prayer is answered, there is no need to cry.
A Season . . .
Although, my situation continues to be quite precarious, I’m still balanced on a pin head you might say, many, many people have shown me various acts of kindness. Some small, some not so small but all with significant impact on my survival through this time.
While I’d like to thank you all by name and/or location, I know that is not the best course. So I will take this time to just say Thank You and to let you know your help has not gone unnoticed.
Additionally, I realize there are some that I’m not aware of, I don’t know your names or where you are but I’ve experienced the benefit(s) of your kindness, none-the-less. I just want you to know that I’m aware and grateful.
Thank you all.
And with all that goodness, the yin and yang of it (I suppose it must be) there are still some hecklers – go figure!
This experience, because I am out and about the community so much, has afforded me an opportunity to get to know the community in a way that would probably have otherwise taken a lot longer. I get to see the four-legged kids on their play dates in the early morning and how excited they get to see all their friends. The correlation with children is really quite astonishing. I see the dads out with their little ones. Who said dads aren’t plugged in? Of course, the mommies are everywhere, working nonstop all day long. Where aren’t they? Go Moms!
