Good Morning Sunshine! Love Transcends.
“Love transcends time and space and circumstance and allows us the privilege of drawing near to those we care so much about____.”
I believe this to be true. I have friends who I love dearly, and once someone becomes a dear friend I do hold them in my heart always. Time happens, and then I think I need to be in touch. Living life, taking care of our families and ourselves takes time. I remind myself not to be too hard on myself, I cannot be all things to everyone and forget to take care of myself, I am no good to anyone if I do not do his one thing. I do hope with all my heart that my friend and family know this about me and retain it. I do them, but that is me. The proof is with those I love and years have gone by, yet when we get in touch there is always this sense of deep love flowing in our heads and hearts. There is this loyalty when you come to love another person. And it happens because of the start together and the years. Such relationships are meant to be tended like a beautiful garden. And so we must return to them.
It is sometimes hard to get into the swing of things because we don’t know what to say. How to begin. I think it is this, then where we must just jump in and make that call or visit. No matter what holds us back. I wrestle with this due to the heaviness that happens, and it must be trying to avoid crying despite the release that gives. I know we over come this. I know that writing brings up these thoughts, and then I rattle them around. I have never been “here” before. I have to chuckle a bit at myself, but I can’t imagine feeling as I do if I were still married to my ex. I will let this out because I am not alone with having an ex, who has done such stupid and hurtful things. He was someone I could not imagine growing old with.
“Fra Giovanni de Capistrano wrote, “ No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in this present instant.” Why wait so long and wish so fervently for something that is ours already? Why must we ask and ask and tell and tell without listening to the answers? Everything that is or ever will be has been since the beginning of time. It is ours to discover, to accept, to use. But we are far too busy reaching to be able to see that which is already within us.” It is this I am after, and which I am glad it needles me. There will be a time and day when I am ready for reaching out more. When I am settled again. I know this as I am aware of myself, and how things feel. We must pay attention. We must trust and believe in ourselves. We do not have all the answers, but we can move forward a bit at a time, into a fast forward. There is nothing we should truly fear. The reward is on the other side of things.
