Hello my friends, I had a better day and managed to do a few things around the house. I cleaned my bathrooms, kitchen, changed my bed linens, did laundry and ironed. It felt good to do these things.
We had a major snow storm and the caretakers of our condos had a hard time keeping the steps and walkways cleaned off. I did my most favorite thing, cosied up by the fire and read a book this afternoon. I even enjoyed the snow storm as tomorrow they are calling for rain and plus 8 temperatures.....I know our weather is unbelievable. At least everything will melt before the next storm hits and we may even get some sunny weather to enjoy over the weekend.
I received an e-mail today and something said in it really struck my heart: It said there are 4 things in life we can never get back:
1. A stone after it is thrown
2. Words after they are spoken
3. Occasion after it is over
4. Time after it is gone.
As I thought about these four things I realized I knew about them but I have never given them a whole lot of thought......now I will. No matter how many times we apologize and it has been accepted those words are still out there and unfortunately someone, some where will believe them, and how many times have we missed a wedding, baptism, funeral, graduation etc. only to realize we will only ever hear people speak of these occasions and not be able to participate in the conversation or have our own memory, and time.....it is so precious and goes by so quickly, we have to enjoy every moment and always let those we love know how we feel. We are not promised more than the moment we have. I really loved this e-mail, and saved it for future reference when I need a reminder of how blessed I am for not throwing stones, or to think before I speak, and attend all important occasions and appreciate all the beautiful time God has given and will give me....Words for thought I am sure.
Let's all keep our thoughts and prayers for Janine going, she has been on my mind all day. Such a sweet and loving spirit.
Good Night my friends and God Bless.......many, many hugs.......:-)
