life


In the midst of heartbreak and sadness, between death and goodbyes, stress and trauma, anger and joy…new life. The circle of life continues everywhere around us. People we love begin their next great journey as we sadly mourn and joyfully remember them at the same time. Babies we never “knew” but loved with everything inside us never get to begin life’s journey on this earth and we mourn them with gutwrenching sobs and heartbreak over what might have been. Parents we love die before we’re ready and we wonder why. Terrorism threatens so much that we hold dear in our present world and the news is full of war and hate and protest and right wing “Christians” calling for assassinations. Sometimes in all of this turmoil it is hard to remember that life does go on, the circle does continue and good things are happening around us every day. We just have to look for them and notice them and celebrate them. This morning my sweet doggie, Jazzy, gave birth to six beautiful and healthy puppies! Two girls and four boys and we are so excited! To whatever higher power is out there…thanks for the reminder. Peace.

  7. Absolutely darling and oh so tiny…Six puppies! Poor mom.

    I wanted to let you know I left a message of thanks for your words of wisdom to me via BSF site. It took me a couple of days of getting around to telling you thank you!

    We have Charlie, who will be a year old next week. Come by sometime, if you are so inclined!

    I’m not a dog person, but puppies are always so cute!

    I am just imagining all the smiles and squirming and sweetness that’ll fill your house in the next few weeks.

    Thanks for sharing. *hugs*

  10. Oh wow, I must really be behind, I actually haven’t heard anything about this, but I am appalled. Like to said, anyone who is Christian should know, or knows, that violance is part of Christianity. As it has been taught, one of the main principles is that of love. To love one another as Jesus has loved us.

    I just can’t believe some people twist words around and use them to their own advantage. Does he not realize that he is leading people the wrong way? And by doing so, he is separating them from God? It’s a scary thing really.

    Well, anyways, I just wanted to comment on it, since it deals with a subject I care about.

    Thanxs for the update πŸ™‚
