waiting

1st day 12.14.18_036

Waiting for 2018 to end.  What a year it has been,  Major changes, a much loved story book romance, came to an end.  Lost in thought last night, I wandered through the open doors of the memory vault. Each new day, brings me further away, from the day last May when I was left behind at the runway, my time not yet come to fly.

What will the new year bring, one will never know till the time comes.  Meanwhile, the clock ticks a steady beat..counting down to what…

Chinese New Year is at the start of February this year.  We will enter the year of the Pig.  Tonight in my part of the world, we will slide into 2019, a little over twelve hours from now.  If I didn’t know the time would it make a difference.  Not really, my life would still be in change mode, and after a good sleep, I will wake to begin yet another day of adventure and exploration.

PL Calendar day 31

Your world will change when you look at things in a positive light

Everything you encounter is an opportunity for you to express yourself.  What you choose to make of the situation is entirely up to you.

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.

PL Calendar, day 26        Maintain a Positive Attitude and Wisdom will                                                   come to you.

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.

 

intertwined

montfort

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

A Thankful Person will Grow as an Individual
