Daily Reminder # 62

Time really does heal many wounds. It puts them in perspective. What we think will kill us in the moment doesn't. Sometimes it makes us stronger or wiser. Sometimes hindsight offers a clearer perspective on the Divine plan. I think I'm going to leave it there and re-post a couple of poems I wrote a year or so ago because I have a political rant bubbling up in me and I think poetry is probably better.

Reflecting on my life,
I wonder about decisions I have made
If I had done this instead of that,
What would it look like now?
Would I be happier
Sadder, wiser
Reflecting on my life
It’s so tempting to second guess
And blame myself for roads not taken
To think, “ah… if only… then…:
As though who I am is not enough
As though the road not taken
Would have been rut free with no detours
Reflecting on my life
I wish I could run, but I’m glad I can walk
I wish I had more
But then I remember how many have so much less
Reflecting on my life
I would be wiser, perhaps
Less prone to sorrow
I would laugh and sing more
Reflecting on my life
The things I most would change
Were not in my hands
The things I most would change
Changed me
Often – not always - for the better
Reflecting on my life
On my best days I am grateful
To love and be loved
To live, breathe, think, dream
And yes – even to reflect.
- Katherine E. Rabenau

Reflected in your loving eyes
I see my own beauty
And I am caught by surprise

- Katherine E. Rabenau

Some things I'm grateful for today:

  • Lemonade
  • Margaret
  • Jon Stewart & the Daily Show
  • a sense of humor
  • mail
  • Angel and Tara Grace
  • the internet

Have a Great Day!
May You See and Be Seen With Loving Eyes!

This is a really uplifting post. Time does serve to take the sting out of things. We should always remember "this, too, shall pass". I love the kitty pictures too.
