They don’t always go together, but if you do have white hair….even under the dye job….you surely have had a tribulation or two. How have you handled that? I’ve had my share…….and two or three other’s share, in my opinion. But my troubles have come and gone…I have very few now. (other than my divorced parents are both going to be living with me) sigh……..
I have a friend that I truly truly respect and adore. He brings wisdom and humor to all of us. He loves us….(remember that journal I did on cyber relationships?) He doubts his worth sometimes. He says that that is what happens when you are raised being told you’re an idiot. I understand….not from personal experience, I was one of the lucky ones in that respect. But I have several friends that through things that happened as children they don’t realize how beautiful they are…how much they bring to not just my world, but to many many many others.
I believe that all people are Spirit. I believe that when God looks at us, what he sees are the lights that are our souls. I believe that your light can be gloriously bright…like Sally, Christopher, Max, Amanda, Isa, Trena, Lisa, Tara, J.D., Bill, Kevin, Wendy X2, Georgie, Cazzie, Kasey, Kelly, Snappy, Hilary,Jan, Val, and so so many other’s ………or you can barely see it. Some of these I’ve mentioned, have impacted me personally, and some are impacting hundreds of others daily,with wisdom, love, encouragement. They have extremely bright lights. Some of them have illnesses you know about, some have illnesses you don’t….some have heartaches so strong I can feel them through the screen……but they and many I’ve not mentioned make a difference….They put their problems to the side and help you and me.
For all of you…..I’m not the only one who loves you…..I’m not the only one who is grateful to know you. Those of you with Trials & Tribulations….with or without the white hair….we know, and we care, and we truly pray for you.
For all of our Aussie friends…our hearts are broken by these bush fires…feel free to post links.
