About Life

Life is filled with challenges.
Children grow.
Relationships come and go.
Marriages fail.
Beloveds die.
Grief is slow.
Acceptance brings peace.
Life begins anew.
Children comfort.
Grandchildren delight.
Friends are valued.
Sweethearts are to be treasured.
Life is a gift from God.

  1. I would up on your blog as it's near mine (http://jacaranda-blue.blogspot.com/). I'm working thru some things and a much-loved friend of mine is dying. I found your "About Life" pretty spot-on. Thanks.

  2. God's timing never ceases to amaze me. This morning I woke (5:00 a.m.) with those thoughts running through my mind. They wouldn't stop. I sat up in bed, picked up the journal and pen on my bedside table and jotted them down. After an hour of cat napping (or trying), I got up and online to post my thoughts (6:32 a.m.) and by the time I got around to checking email, you had read and commented on my post (6:57 a.m.), Susan. If I had been a little lazier this Saturday morning, you may never have read those lines. I'm glad I followed my impulse.

    I have learned that Life is a series of challenges. Some are harder than others. Hang in there. Thanks for commenting and for listing your blog address. I'll be reading it regularly. :)
