Dear Goddess, The beauty of Autumn is all around us today. I took a few pictures of the beautiful green, oranges, red and yellow, and I will put these up on today’s post. Pearl was gallivanting along the rivers edge, looking exactly like the puppy that she is.
New beginnings are everywhere around us. Just when you think everything has settled down, another opportunity arises. That’s what happened to me today. I made my mind up about one thing, and the next moment I was offered something I could not resist.
Why is it that the stream of life takes you contentedly along, and suddenly great change erupts right under your feet?
Last spring on my radio show, Stan Goldberg and I discussed the world of caregiving, and whether we want to face this or not, all of us one day will be on the giving or receiving end of taking or giving care to a loved one. One day that loved one may very well be you and me.
Taking care of a beloved dying person can be a gift as hard lessons are learned about yourself. I know I learned some hard lessons as I watched my father go downhill year after year right before my eyes. He did not want to die, and I refused to believe that he would ever die.
That is because he’s is with me still, not just in memory, not just in spirit, not just in my heart, but he is here, now.
I learned this especially when I got my fathers watch fixed and started to wear it. The next day, the watch stopped at the very moment his 102 year old sister passed from this world.
I knew then that the watch was much more than a watch — it was a communication link between worlds where my dad is waving and saying “hello!”
Om Peace Amen
Peace On Earth
