Time and reflections

Friday, October 28, 2016

Well, look at this. I have been away from my Spark people for such an extended period. Time has flown, simply flown. Life has happened, and I am changed by it. I mean, I am the same in so many ways, but different inside.

Here it is, fall once again and my birthday has just passed. The calendar tells me to add another year; my heart tells me to add even more than that on some days. I know that I will work my way through the depth of emotion I am feeling, for that is who I am and that is the stuff I am made of. For today, it is enough to say I am here, I am still standing, and although I feel broken inside, I know that sadness is only a place to rest as my soul heals and prepares to resume its purposeful journey. Joy is on the other side of sorrow, light is on the other side of dark, but blessings? They are woven through the fabric of everything, and so I continue to count them, and find peace in them. Time for reflection (isn't it always?) and time for a new plan.

    It has often been said that "life happens" - good *or* bad .........you are here to fight on for another day, and that's a *huge* deal!
