Don’t worry .. this is a short story =^_^= I was recently asked to go through long forgotten boxes (husband doing a clean up and rearranging in part of the house).. I got to go through several boxes of pictures. Pictures, tons of pictures, there was nothing to do but sit down with a box and begin.
What emerged were pictures of another lifetime,in fact ..many life times . People, places long gone from my present. Although I did remember some of the moments, if I’m honest, many moments captured were really no longer part of my current bank of memories, and most of the people who I came across would be total strangers to me now. I wouldn’t recognize them unless they came up to me and said, “hey, remember me…”
Like pebbles in the ocean
being washed in by the waves
daily our lives change…
sometimes the changes are subtle
other times, the change is drastic
shattering your life pattern
so that nothing remains the same…
the quiet slow changes do the same,
only you have time to assimilate
and are always on top of your game.
The memories were and are good … I realized that although at the time I might not have appreciated the growing pains…
( IF there was any) but in seeing the happy faces, and the recalling the moments/events/happenings, I felt really blessed to have had such caring and loving friends.
People change, friends drift apart, what was, was, and what is, IS. The saying “when one door closes, another opens” is so bang on. When we enjoy life, with all the opportunities we are offered, greet the day with enthusiasm, our days become more rewarding. Not matter what it is, what the day bring, really get into it. Put your heart into everything you do, don’t squander the adventures offered by the Universe.
Namaste – Oyashikiri
Smile – Happiness is…
a story that begins with a door!
