This process has helped us through some of the same personal family crisis many families have faced. Walking thru the woods, around a lake, by a creek and even up a mountain helps get your mind off the things you have already turned over to the highest power. Funny how we , particularly me, will say It is something I cannot change, I can accept that. Then an hour later will be trying to think of a way to FIX it.
But our walks and talks have always calmed the ‘evil spirits’ (ha) that seem to bug us.
WE all see times that we think, no, we know, things are going to ‘Hell in a hand basket’ (whatever that means???) WE MUST do something!
Then someone we know dies unexpectedly. Someone close (or our age), finds out they have cancer. A stoke hits close. we visit a good friend in a nursing home and see the quality of life there. At that time, and usually only then, I realize the fragile line I am walking. Then for a little while say, when problems come up, if I cannot fix it, I will have the serenity to accept that.
Like most of you, I read several blogs. I do it for different reasons. Some for fun, some for entertainment, a couple for their spiritual content, some to see a foreign view and some to get a bit of wisdom and encouragement. This is a great medium for that.
I am amazed at some of you, you can put some gems of knowledge in short packages, even in your comments. You are succinct and precise. I on the other hand drag on and on to say something.
Thanks. As we walk and talk, some of the things you have said come up, we laugh, we smile and most of the time agree that you guys are pretty good friends.
Did you realize that:
….Life is sexually transmitted.
….Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die
