If not for the little touch of red on the latch, I would have missed this door. I did include this door in another blog it was among other doors, and thought it deserved a feature of its own.
There are days when I want to blend in and disappear. Yes it happens to me, and I suspect each one of us at some time has had that feeling.. Where you just want the world to keep rolling along, so you can catch your breath, or simply veg.
Instead of worrying do something about it. It doesn’t help to over think situations such as “what if this happens?” or “Things might up that way” Instead be proactive and change how you see and do things in each situation.

Sine my husband’s passing have found it very difficult to do some of the things that need doing. example. Going upstairs to his offices and going through paperwork. Clearing out furniture and objects has not been a problem, yet for some reason, the filing cabinets have been like the door above, I don’t seem them. If I do, I walk right by.
There are times in life, when we have to “see” the issue, and then do something about it. In my case I have asked for help. And today, I will go to church and pray, giving thanks for my blessings, and express my gratitude that I have friends to turn to, and of course, I KNOW that PL Precept # 11 Always be with God. God is always with me.
A friend passed on the other day, massive stroke, one day he was walking in the sunshine between tall trees on one of his favourite walking trails with a friend, the next day he was gone. He was liked by his friends because he always said, he was poor in material things, but had an abundance of riches spiritually and in his friendships. Caring, gentle and understanding, he will be missed by all who knew him.
My niece knew yesterday that I was in having a difficult time… she sent me this quote she found on all-great quotes.com. I saw it only this morning. and yes, the above is all so true.

PL calendar day 11 – Remember to be thankful and humble. Appreciate the Makoto (sincerity) of the people who came before you.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love. Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls Khalil Gibran
April 24, a date to remember, it was my husband’s birthday. A day that celebrated his life. Now it is a reminder that I am a “widow” In May it will be a year since he passed away. His last birthday was one he so bravely wanted to celebrate. His courage and determination saw him make that date and live to say he had achieved his goal. He had his 70th. at home we toasted his achievements and his life, knowing there would be no more.
Over his years of being successful at his chosen vocation – broadcasting, and the written media, he thrived at being a reporter of his many journeys and many observations as he travelled the world in search of stories, and new experiences. He never tired of sharing with others his enjoyment of the many interests he had acquired through his travels and his career. History, geography, world affairs he could converse and debate at large.

Things that happen to us all have a meaning.
Everything that happens to us happens for a reason. Each and every occurrence is a chance for you to improve yourself.
We married late in life, he was determined that his wife would be alright when and if he was not around. That meant, he wanted me to have and maintain an independence that would serve me in good stead should he not be around. He was so kind, considerate and caring, that I can say in all sincerity, he completed my life in a way that was so loving and dedicated to our togetherness that even though physically he is not here, he will always be MY husband, MY one and only … You were and are a blessing Brian, you are celebrated every day. R.I.P.

I was chatting with friend the other day, since cancer is now factored into my life, we were discussing how people react to the word. It was interesting to note, that when I said that cancer was much like being told you are diabetic. She did not agree. Her reasoning was that cancer usually meant death. I understood that she felt that being diabetic your chances were much better. Diabetes is known as the silent killer.
We are born to die. Death is something we all face. A perfectly healthy person, can drop dead without warning. Perhaps they were borderline.. high blood pressure, maybe it was cholesterol, or like my husband, out of nowhere, after living a lifetime with his heart, and never having a problem, he was told, he had an irregular heart beat and it was problamatic to his cancer treatments ?
I fail to see why cancer gets top billing, and why because someone gets the cancer card, it is deemed gloom and doom. Sure there are difficult times, but someone with a gall bladder issue, will be driven almost insane with the pain that they endure till something is done about it. A kidney stone, is not a joking matter either. And ladies, how about that 9th month party of labour pain and the utter joy of the delivery room.
Cancer is a wicked surprise, and it is a challenge, however, we still go to bed each night and wake every morning. How we choose to make use of our time while we are awake and greeting the day, is our choice. The love of life, and the understanding that this is not the time to squander our moments, means that life is full. Love continues to grow and shine it’s light into our activities.
There is an appreciation of the blessings that we have been able to share, and continue to share.
There is no escaping death, whatever circumstances we find ourselves in, we are alive, and we will continue to live until the day/night comes when we go beyond what is here and now. Then, we will be forever/always.
