2011 Sunday's Gratitude Post

Some weeks back I outlined a whole new organizational structure for my living in the middle blog. I was hoping to start on January 1st and write a posting everyday for the next 365 days of this year. Well, I missed day one. Since the death of my mother, I have not been ready to even look at my blog. Normally, writing brings me a lot of comfort but I have been in a state of word paralysis. I am forcing myself out of this state by writing. Even if what I happen to write is crap or written poorly, I will write.

Gratitude entry for Sunday, January 2, 2011:

I am grateful for all of the love and kindness shown to me by others concerning my mother's passing. I had no idea it was this hard to lose a parent. I knew it was hard, I just couldn't fathom it before it actually happened.

What I have learned from this experience is that I am not ready to lose anyone else. In fact I need to find a few people that were lost to me not by death but by circumstance. So if I know you and you are thinking of kicking the bucket, DON'T! My heart can't take that. There are a few of you out there that I need to hug. Just for the record, what matters most now is what we do with the time we have.

As different as we appear on the outside
we are pretty much the same
on the inside all beings need love.
Wisdom Quote

One can not reflect in streaming water.
Only those who know internal peace can give it to others.
~Lao Tzu

Thank you Kristen, for your courage to write. Keep doing it, it may bring some healing. The grieving process is individual. Take time with yours.

I heard you can get viruses on your smartphones too, so I have a Blackberry Curve and is there any anti-virus security program for smartphones?

[url=]Outstanding[/url]. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will make an effort to get the hang of it![url=].[/url]
