an emotional time of year



 
 
Every October we go to Kiawah Island, SC for a week. My parents have gone with us and one year my mom had a kidney stone attack. My son has gone numerous times. He and his wife have gone with us. I even took mom three years ago while she was in the throes of Alzheimer. Last year we went as usual. we plan from the first of the year. Mom was doing poorly but still had some fight. On the last day there I got the call. We packed up and left. I was 30 minutes too late but I had a special last day with her prior to our trip. Tomorrow is her birthday. The last day of our trip (Oct 20) will be a year since her death. I miss her much. I know she is well. She is with our Lord, my dad, her parents and her brothers. They wait on the rest of us.

Know your purpose


 
The spirit of life
Is an ocean
Rising and receding
Renewing
its purpose
The soul of life
Is the sun—warm and bright
Shining
Its purpose
 
The heart of life
Is the sky
Changing and revealing
Its purpose

discovery and share



how often do you run across things and wonder why have I not known about this? Then let me share now. Maria Shriver has a wonderful website with resources and the best of all is the SUNDAY PAPER. She explores wonderful insight into things we all ponder in a lifetime. And it's free. I don't necessarily agree with all she says but she does give the reader much to think about. Here's the link:

If it doesn't work as a click link, please cut and paste into your browser. Also, if you haven't read her book I'VE BEEN THINKING, get it now. I was lucky to get it at the library but I need a copy of my own "to share" of course.

simple idea

I pray.
God listens
I trust.
