Ah :)

Elvis has left the building, and I’m following his Cadillac. πŸ™‚ So until then, this is the end my friends, for a few . . . Taking a MUCH NEEDED AND MUCH DESERVEDΒ  BREAK. Yippee!!!!So until after then:-

“Love . . ., what is it?”

Everyone enjoy and have a great, fantastic, beautiful, summer. πŸ™‚

Leaving THEN behind

But first.

“By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches.” Psalm 104 vs 12

This week, as with so many other weeks, God has bless me with a choir of birds. Every morning I hear them singing at my window. So amazing. πŸ™‚

And last night, thunder, lightning, and rain. What did I do? I went out and spun around in the rain.

“You’ve got to get yourself together, You’ve got stuck inΒ  moment and now you can’t get out of it, Don’t say that later will be better, now you’re stuck in a moment, And you can’t get out of it.” from the song, Stuck In A Moment by U2

Broken relationships. Angry words. Wounds, scars that wouldn’t heal. A terrible mistake. Something of terrible significance. So many things that some people never leave behind. Somehow they’re stuck in the then, the time when these things happened, and they refuse to move on, refuse to heal. They never reach the later in their lives because for whatever reason they’re stuck.

I’ve been there, but I refuse to stay there. Pain comes with healing, and we heal in our own time. But how long is too long to get over something? Days? Months? Years? A lifetime?

Life comes with its negatives but we must remember . . .

This song makes me want to get all dress up and go singing. “And I’m feeling gooooood.” πŸ˜†

Have a great weekend everyone. πŸ™‚

 

 

One thing led to another

Last week it was so hot that I had an urge to go sleep on top of the roof, but I thought about when I rolled over, yeah, ouch. πŸ™‚ That would have been me landing on the ground.

Then I thought about how hot the sun is and how I cannot change that fact.

That led me to think about change and how do we know what to change in our lives and in the world, and when is it time to carry out those changes?

Then I listened to a song, Gangstas’ Paradise by Coolio (I also thought about the movie, Dangerous Minds) and that led me to ask whether change begins with a mindset?

Then that led me to asking why, why do we have to change or want to make changes in the world, and then who, who do we change for, ourselves or other people?

Sperm donor

It takes more than a sperm to be a father, rather, a good father. And ladies, not all, emasculating men don’t help.

I miss you papa. 😦

Keep the roses and give me . . .

πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

And now for one of my favorite songs.

Have a great weekend everyone. πŸ™‚

 

Waiting hopefully?

I was reading something when the name Kelsey Grammar, popped up. That name led me to think of something else. By the way, he is an actor, and the show that introduced me to him was Frasier.

But this is not about him, this is about two characters, Niles and Daphne, played by David Hyde Pearce and Jane Leeves, on the above mentioned show. See, Niles was in love with Daphne for seven years. He waited, he hoped, he yearned. I waited, I hoped, I yearned, that yes, she would finally find out that he was in love with her. She did. Oh what a moment that was. Finally, through joys, pain, missed chances, heartbreaks, foolish decisions, tears, they finally got together.

Would you wait on one person for that long to notice you? Would you wait for that long for the one that captured your heart to finally say that they were in love with you too?

A thing from the past

You talk some in small circles and then, you write some for the masses. That’s what came to mind while listening to a program about some historical events that took place in my country’s history. We don’t document a lot of it.

Take that and apply it to life, we all have a past. Yes, some good and bad, but what do we do with it?
