i acknowledge it takes two i also have learned i only take responsibility for only what is mine but sometimes regret bullies and threatens to take me with her

my son asked me if i thought i would be a grumpy old person or a happy one he worries that i will have regrets and in psychology they teach that regret makes grumpy at the end of life he's 18

i listen to this song and it hooked my pain today http://youtu.be/dNX3y4S_jKU

 

i cry and mourn for something i deeply love but is twisted and sick and nothing i can do can change it but i love and i my heart hurts deep and longs for a lifetime partner friend  a soft place to land to be vulnerable and know there is a safe place.  someone to rock old with.  who gets me.

a heart can be riddled with holes and scarred beyond recognition and what is one to do when you've cupped it in your own hands i turn to the only real safe place.. the only true and pure love i have ever known he brushes my heart while the tears fall down washing away the sting

i breathe i smile i squeeze His hand back and whisper i love you too...

instead i allow my creator father and husband to sing those words to my heart i feel better i wipe the tears

God is my everything.  always has been.  He is where i run..i hide..healed..delivered..made whole i take trust and courage by the hand and move forward

girls we are stepping out of the box .  just a little:) and i feel so blessed to love love love what i am doing at this time in my life. it needs to be sprinkled with some balance though if i'm being real here

even good things can be stumbling blocks if not measured. and this old bag of flesh needs to be reminded that life is to be lived and enjoyed some not beat myself into a frenzied heap of a mess not good to anyone

what things are you needing to be reminded of lately?  perhaps balanced? are you anything like me in that you are doing so many things that before you know it wham!
