FEELING THE GIFTS*

Knots are meant to make our life more simple
Unless they manage to land in your stomach
Then they become unwanted and feared
For the pain and sorrow that are attached to them

Each day I am reminded of the gifts I have embraced
Life. Family. Love. Peace. Health.
When I am torn with another’s suffering
I am drawn to these gifts for comfort

With this comfort I am able to do what I must
To bring smiles and laughter to others
Who would rather be shedding tears
But welcome the temporary joy

I ask you all to keep my friend Rod in your thoughts and prayers
He has been like a father to me and I love him
dearly
May he find the strength to battle his illness
and find peace…once again.

I thank you all.

  3. A nice Y for my link. Although I’m thinking it should’ve been a “Delete” button Ha Ha!!! .
    I went with Y-Not again as ynot has been my email adress for years. Only prob with deleting a blog is that when/if you come back it’s so hard to get a decent URL again that’s not already taken. I don’t understand why they don’t make previously deleted URL’s available again.
