jabberings, jottings, and jumbled thoughts
Amen, Sister. I am always a bit fearful that if I don't appreciate what or who I have, I may lose it. It is that "karma" way of thinking. Life has taught me about that. Namaste.
I agree, it's really sad if we wait to realize the value of someone or something until after we've lost them. The older I get the more I appreciate all the little things I have that make life good, and the big things like Papa Bear too! There are always reasons to be happy!
How we feel and act is all defined by perspective and attitude. Sometimes I need that etched on my palms so every time I throw my hands up in despair or anger or frustration or whatever I will see it.
I need that too, Patricia! Sometimes late in the afternoon I wonder how I got so off course in my intentions to remain happy all day!
Gratitude takes away lots of unhappiness.
That's for surest, Mimi! When we remember the good things in our life it makes the not so good things easier to bear, and we stop feeling so sorry for ourselves!
Your comments are always appreciated... they make me smile! :-)
