Life has so many twists and turns. The “crazy train” – thank you, Ozzy – throws me off and causes me to dust myself off, climb back aboard and brace for more. All right life, what you got? Bring it on!
Not that I’m so tough. I feel sad right now because someone I love was not only disrespected, but also had to take the blame when it wasn’t his/her fault. It’s not right. I also need to put my empathy on the back burner, because I hurt for this person and he/she isn’t even hurting in the same way for themselves. Truly, I believe the disrespect is just another day at the rodeo for this person. So, I must shrug it off and be thankful that I’m not treated that way. I thank God for who I have close to me to know that they would never throw a dagger like that.
So, here’s the positive. I’m surrounded by beauty in Oregon. When I first moved here, I was enthralled with every curve of a scenic byway because paradise was revealed. We have an amazing state, country, world, universe to behold. I’m grateful just for the backyard view we had yesterday.
