Haven’t been feeling really spry the past few days, nothing serious. Would even be over stating it to say I was feeling sick, just off, a lot of the thick head and very tired. OK, enough whining, got some really exciting news the other day. Two maybe even three more of my cousins are coming for a visit. Shirley, Gloria and I hope Sherry are planning a visit. We are both looking forward to it.
Have a little external chaos going on in my life right now, but that should all be put to rest by the end of the month.
I really want to thank everyone that shared their thoughts on Angels. Each of these comments I hope to respond to individually over the next day or so.
Ok, from here on is new, what I wrote above is actually what I started 2 or 3 days ago. I have been trying to do something different, actually write about my thoughts and beliefs in Angels. By actually, write I mean actually trying to plan what I want to say, going back and restructuring paragraphs, edit thoughts, all that sort of stuff. That whole thing just doesn’t seem to work for me. When finished, I reread and realize what I have said is nothing like what I meant.
Any other time I just sit down and type I suppose straight from my heart, just what ever comes. That is what I am going to do in the next day or so with my thoughts on Angels. Actually, trying to write with a purpose just isn’t in me these days I suppose. It requires organization of thoughts. Huh, maybe that is why I have been delaying filling out some needed paperwork.
I have been so very gratified to be receiving comments on how people are benefiting from my writing. It is almost like a sense of mission accomplished as that is what I had hoped to do when I started this whole thing. If I could help, in anyway even one person, before I leave this world, I have accomplished something. Now it always goes without saying that my 2 beautiful daughters are my greatest pride and sense of accomplishment.
This last while I have realized something important about myself. I have a tendency when I am physically not feeling all that good to allow it to affect my mood or frame of mind. Now I am not trying to say, when I am not feeling good I should still be all chipper and happy. But, I don’t have to allow it to drag my overall mood down, I allow that to happen. I do not have to allow my mind set to shift from the moment to dwell on my tomorrows.
OK, enough of this. I know by concentrating or focusing on the positive, I can put all else into its proper perspective. When put into its proper perspective it seems pretty small in the overall scheme of things. “Celebrate what you have, instead of mourning what you do not have, or will loose”.
Just typing those few words make me more clearly see. I am a lucky man. There are so many that have it so much worse than I. I have visited other blogs and from the writings there so often I can feel the pain, hurt and sorrow.
I have said a short prayer ask our Heavenly Father to ease the pain and suffering of so many. In a separate short prayer I just thanked Our Father for the blessings he has granted me.
