Truly Good……

Truly Good…

I don’t usually share two quotes in one day, but one of my best friends just said this to me this morning and it REALLY made me feel good. This is one of the reasons she & I have been best friends for over 20 years, I’m blessed to have her in my life.

Truly good friends do whatever humanly possible so as NOT to fail their friends. They care, they give of their time, they listen, they’re loyal, they don’t blow smoke up your ass, they tell you when you’re wrong, they are unfailingly supportive, but most of all, they know how to be a friend. You are, one million percent, that friend and I love you for it.” © Stefanie Adams-McNamara

New Leaves…

New Leaves

“The chief beauty about time is that you cannot waste it in advance. The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled, as if you had never wasted or misapplied a single moment in all your life. You can turn over a new leaf every hour if you choose.”  ―Arnold Bennett

Precisely How I…

Precisely How I Feel Today…..

“Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.”
―Fyodor Dostoevsky

I woke up this morning thinking I could handle a battle which lays before me, only to remind myself that I am in mourning and it’s ok to admit that. It’s only been a week and I need to give myself time, because I’m too raw to be allowed to jump into the Dead Sea. So tomorrow I handle the battle, but I will give myself the weekend to contemplate and begin working on the healing process. I also promise to call in reinforcements as needed, because right now I don’t think I can solve a crossword puzzle, leave alone my own life.
