Confused about life? Join the club!

There are so many things in this world that we do not know the answers to and others that we are probably not meant to know the answers to…not even sure where to start. I remember when my oldest was born and looking at that perfect little tiny body and wondering how in the world this happens…ok, yes I know where babies come from and the whole science behind babies but I am talking about the miracle of this little person that we were responsible for. At one point, about an hour after he was born, everyone left the room, even the nurse and it was just me in a bed and baby in a basinette 3 feet away from we…I started to panic, what if he cried what would I do?!?!

I have been in situations where even our best judgement may not be the correct way to handle things but you still have to plunge forth. We are flawed, every last one of us, we are not perfect and never will be as long as we are still of this earth. How we handle this life and the variety of situations we enter into says a lot about the type of person we truly are inside.

A dear friend today stated that she was a sinner, she gossips. Well she should know that she is not alone there are many of us that gossip outright as well as more covertly…some comment made a little more subtle than others. We all sin in many different forms probably daily because we are human.

You are probably wondering what this has to do with being confused about life…well these are just some of the things about life that are confusing. There is another young friend that states that no one understands what is going on but will never go any further than that. Young friends, we were all young once, we struggled with many of the same things that you yourself are struggling with today…open up to someone, you will not be judged but only loved.

Why is it we cannot embrace and cherish our young and let them know that they are not alone to grow up without help and guidance?

Live Forever

Posted on

The topic of the day was if you could live forever would you? why or why not? Well I can honestly tell you that I would not want to live forever. It is bad enough, for our own sorrows, that we lose people that we love through the natural course of progression but live past everyone I know, including my children, would not be ideal.

I would much rather live a long life full of love, sorrows, good times, bad times, then to live past all those in my life. I would love to grow old with my husband, children, and grandchildren than live forever. We all will live forever in the stories that we pass down from generation to generation as well as in the hearts of those that we have personally touched and nurtured. That would be perfect for me.

I have been able to share stories with my children that were passed down to me from my great aunts and my grandparents, so those same people live on in our hearts and memories as long as we share the tales we were told. I love recounting the great aunts tales of the Great Depression and how those stories made me feel as a child. I have shared these same stories with my children and she lives on in their hearts as well.

The best way to prolong our own livelihood is to share our stories. Think of where we would be if history was not recorded? The oral and written history lives on in the reader after the teller is gone. The Diary of Anne Frank was just the writings of a young girl during a very trying time but she lives on because of her writings and experiences. Laura Ingalls Wilder also lives on in the stories she wrote of her childhood. Moses lives on in many different types of stories as well as movies because his life was recorded. All of these people will continue to live long after I am gone because their own stories were shared over and over again.

That is how I would want to live forever…

One Hour to Live

Posted on

There was a bonus topic…if you had one hour to live what would you do? WOW I am not sure that I would want to know if I only had 1 hour left to live. I would want to talk to all my family and tell them that I love them all regardless of the past. I would hug my children and husband and never want to let go. I would tell my mom she is the greatest and thank her for everything she ever did for me. I would pray to God to take care of my family always. I would remind my children that I will always be watching over them…Not sure I liked this one since I am crying like a baby but I’m sure you all get the picture.
