inner travels

IMG_1362

I lay watching the slow rotation of the ceiling fan, a very lazy start to the day indeed. Keeper (female whippet) lay sprawled out beside me.  She was showing her nurturing side, concerned that today might be a repeat of yesterday.

IMG_1358She gets very concerned when I cry and wail.  Velcro (male whippet) her older brother, takes it in stride, he saw and lived through my display of raw emotion, when my husband was in his final days, and Keeper got out and ran away.  Yesterday he simply got up from his favourite chair in another part of the house, to come  lie beside me, to lend me his support and quietly wait it out.

IMG_1360My son the other day, looked at me, and said, ” Mom, its OK to cry”  and of course it is, but for me, I can’t just cry, I have to be  totally shaken and depleted, the body has to over-ride my happiness and stubborn mind that tells me, that there is just so much to be thankful for.  And of course there always is, I am so blessed.

However sometimes, the sadness, and discontent of others is too much for me to bear. I feel their pain, frustrations and disillusion.  And I have learned that I cannot be happy for someone else.  You can not lift the happiness from your life, like a shawl and put it around someone else. You can be kind, listen, share in their “present state” and lend what-ever support you can.

In the end, the choice belongs to them.  Yesterday I cried, all the sadness, the disappointments that I have listened to for the last many days and months, welled up and demanded to be released. I wanted escape, and freedom from the continuous onslaught of negative news, the vicious nature that is surfacing in the world around us.  The curiosity we seem to have for the gossip tabloids, that thrive by reporting or should I say offering up gossip about cheating, lying and fornication.  Where we lust instead of love.

IMG_1365Time for some time out.  Quality time without a cell phone,  computer, laptop, or tablet. There is a reason, dogs (pets) are the best of friends.  They offer unconditional love. Nothing more, nothing less.

Cherish your family and friends, offer kindness and understanding to those around you, when there is unkindness, or dishonesty aimed in your direction. Deflect it, or let it pass you by.  Life is too short.

Thursday door 6.28.18

 

flowers PA4This door is  more welcoming during the summer months, when there are blossoms blooming to invite you to enjoy the view.

These days I feel like a door.  I stand ready, each day a new “visitor” comes to call, today the stove called.  It blew a gasket, sending smoke and fumes into the air.  The fire alarms chimed in to really add to the excitement.

The dogs and I just looked at one another.  I ran for the stove, turned it off, opened the door, got the fans going, and and and.

New stove will be delivered next week.  Interesting menu if you care to stop on by. My house is the one with the happy weeds, the new weed whacker won’t start.  No wonder the house with the roses is smiling … it knows there is no competition this year.

Don’t worry, I’m as happy as can be.  I got to post a door this Thursday. Yipeee… For more doors, check out Norm 2,0 Thursday doors

thank goodness I am a positive person. I’ve had to deal with a cracked coffee maker, a burnt out toaster, a new weed wacker that is being finicky, and a stove that said I quit.  Good for me. I get all new toys.

That day we walked back to the car, after being told that we had an aggressive cancer in our lives. I remember looking into the darkness of the floor of the wooded area, near where our truck was parked.

For some reason, this  patch of land was a place that I revisited often over the months that followed.  No, not physically, but in my mind’s eye.  I didn’t see flowers if they were blooming, it was the greenery, the trees, the open spaces between  them.

1.30.17 towards Osgoode

The shadows that danced across the snow-covered floor between the trees, always I saw how nature blended and intermingled.  I didn’t know it at the time, but I feel it now.  As time passes, I miss my husband’s physical presence more and more, I feel him and hear his words in the strangest of places, or in the  landscapes I see that I pass along the way to “wherever”.

hogs back 4.10.18

The memory of our “togetherness” is intertwined with the nature that I see all around me.  Like the seasons, and the changing skies.  We are no longer as we were, but always, we will BE…  Unconditional love, is happiness, tears, joy and sorrow.  What a blessing to have been granted the experience of a love that while of this earth,  blossomed into forever.

Day 21   PL Calendar

Good evening everyone, the above are words that we have been hearing for the last many months. #5 is what we were told today.  I picked up the PL Calendar for the 29th.

Be Cheerful and Easygoing

Everything has a way of turning out alright in the end.  Relax and always try to Think Positively.

How we deal with challenges that come our way, determines a lot, about how we enjoy our days, and if we are able to Think Positively.

My husband and I both would have liked the scenes we are living to be somewhat different, however, they are not.  They are what they are.  We do our best to encourage others around us, help them find their way in the “stories” that they are living.  We also make time for “us” … and our personal “selves”

The messenger doesn’t  always bring “good news”, but every one is doing their best, and that is really all one can ask. When we get over whelmed, we accept that moment, and rest.  No regrets or misgivings.  Tomorrow is another day. when it arrives, we will deal with it, one step at a time.

Whatever the outcome, knowing we have done all we can do.  When the time comes for the day to come to an end.  We will know we did our best.  Meanwhile, we enjoy each other, and know we’ve come a long way, each being whole, when sharing with the other.

This is VERY POSITIVE.

We are so grateful that you are part of our lives.  You are appreciated, each and every one of YOU.

This sculpture gave me such a sense of “fun and freedom” when I saw it.  I have had it in my picture library for some time, and do not recall where I got it. If anyone is aware of the artist, please let me know.
