Change is in the air…

Missing my brother, missing my oldest friends, missing the old me…I understand life moves forward. Time doesn’t stop.

The past few weeks, has been all about old friends, new friends…and I love this quote:
“Even though we’ve changed and we’re all finding our own place in the world, we all know that when the tears fall or the smile spreads across our face, we’ll come to each other because no matter where this crazy world takes us, nothing will ever change so much to the point where we’re not all still friends.”

With each change we go through, our plan needs to accommodate…I am a work in progress.

I truly believe that for whatever reason; reasons, I don’t fully understand right now, nor am fully aware…today marks a day of change for me. I am home sick, feeling puny; a tad whiney, alone….and although my body is weak, my resolve is strong.

“Life’s challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they’re supposed to help you discover who you are”. – Bernice Johnson Reagon

Most people can look back over the years and identify a time and place at which their lives changed significantly. Whether by accident or design, these are the moments when, because of a readiness within us and a collaboration with events occurring around us, we are forced to seriously reappraise ourselves and the conditions under which we live and to make certain choices that will affect the rest of our lives. – Frederick F. Flack

Have you ever heard the saying, “I’m like a picture, developing from the negative”? So true…our life is indeed journey toward effective and necessary change. Adapting…

I have realized that life is should be full of joy. But for us to fully experience this joie de vivre, we can’t be resistant to change. Change is always present and always knocking on our door, every moment, every second of every day.

“Not one moment in time exists without the next moment in time forcing it to become history.”

Change is inevitable. It is such an important part of every human being’s life – our journey…embracing change!

Wishing my brother in heaven a very happy birthday!

♥ Happy birthday, AJ in Heaven Baby brother ♥

When I miss you most, I place my hand over my heart and its there I will find you, because even though you are out of my sight, you will never be out of my heart…baby brother. Where does the time go….he would have been 45!! My Angel in Heaven… Love you and miss you with all my heart.

This song is worth re-posting…

“It’s strange here without you
And it’s so hard to see
So brother up in heaven
Please wait up for me

Oh brother up in heaven
Please wait up for me

I still see his shadow
His laugh lingers on…”


We live and we die…

Music in my heart….

We live and we die
Like fireworks
Our legacies hide
In the embers
May our stories catch fire
And burn bright enough
To catch God’s eye

We live and we die
Like fireworks
We pull apart the dark
Compete against the stars
With all of our hearts
Till our temporary brilliance turns to ash
We pull apart the darkness while we can

May we live and die
A valorous life
May we write it all down
In cursive light
So we pray we were made
In the image of a figure eight

May we live and die
Like fireworks
We pull apart the dark
Compete against the stars
With all of our hearts
Till our temporary brilliance turns to ash
We pull apart the darkness while we can

Like fireworks
We pull apart the dark
Compete against the stars
With all of our hearts
Till our temporary brilliance turns to ash
We pull apart the darkness while we can


Faith…Hope…Time…

Peace of mind eludes me lately as problems begin to mount one after the other. Though this is not one of the best periods of my life, I know it will soon be over. Faith…Hope…Time…I know the solution is to tackle one thing at a time. Trying so hard, to just not take all of this to heart; problems always come and go and this will pass sooner than I think.

Faith…Hope…Time…♥
