Not fair... let me get out my blessing...

I wasn't going to post a blessing because... well... I had written a blessing... a lengthy one.

It was part rant, and ended in an optimistic way about my feelings and how things would hopefully go... it was based on a wonderful dream I had... and in that dream, things were wonderful, but there was reminders of what that "rant" was about... to be honest, it was my torn old jacket... but it (the dream,) was like things were awful... but there was goodness and brightness in what was happening and what I think would be the end result.

...and that blessing, when setting it "to pixels" in the morning, was pretty soundly shot down.

I won't lie... this upset me greatly... and I went for a walk...

Now, it may sound corny... but there's been many times in my life where a dream... an expression... something I thought was "excellent" or even "good" had been trampled and effectively wrested from me... and like all those times, I took a walk... downtrodden and feeling very abandoned and sad... in all cases, like my future and my present was pointless.

...and every time, during those walks away from the anger or great sadness... one song always goes through my mind...

It went through my head when I was at the hospital the night my father died... it went through my mind when I was truly wandering homeless wondering where I'd sleep on those nights when things were bad... it played out in my head when I was upset over a million different things... it's a song that actually carried me.

I know... corny... and perhaps, in these situations, a little depressive... but it gets me through... and when I'm at my end, it's a song that's meant something to me... and for that, it's a blessing.

I'm pretty down right now... and may be for a while... and that's a long story as to why... so I am going to take time off from blogging... well, until my "Wordless Wednesday" again.

ISSUES! Don't misread this... Sue and I are fine... no issues there... it's other things that bit me in the bum. Sorry if I gave any inference in any other way.

Imagine moves me a lot, but this is a powerful song too, very powerful....hang in there dear, you know if you need to talk, you can email me, or if Sue does. I have some sturdy shoulders....and helping others helps me survive the rough spots myself...and we're kind of having 1 at the moment ourselves.
Peace, and remember just let it be!

I love that song. I don't think the Beatles made one bad song (except Revolution #9).

Keep Plugging!

How goes the Bus Quest?

Well, recognizing the problem as one is a blessing because now you can "solve" it. Sometimes when we think life is unfair, that's when we have opportunities to receive a multitude of blessings. As you work on solving your "problem", keep your eyes open for those additional blessings!

Sorry you are feeling down. Maybe you just need to take a day off. If blogging is viewed as a chore, stop.

I will not tell you to cheer up--that always makes me mad.

I am sorry to hear that you are down right now, but I hope and wish that things change for you pretty soon...and you are able to work through or around the issue, exactly the way you want to.

I am also glad to hear that you and Sue are doing fine!
