Life

What do you call…

Do you ever wake up and wonder whatever happened to so-and-so? I mean, they used to be such a huge chunk of your life! How could they slip away unnoticed?

I’ve had people come into my life and stay for long periods and people who have made a difference in my life in five minutes and then be gone.

How does that work exactly? What’s the name of that algorithm?

For the most part I love people. I don’t care how you look, just how you treat others, ya know? I know that there are creepy people who don’t have my best of heart at interest. They just have a mission and every once in a blue moon or so, I happen to be in their way. No biggie, I can move.

My real question is what happens to the people who touched your soul, held your heart, made you laugh from your core and then slipped away?

I asked a Psychologist about it and the gist of the answer was that we’re supposed to go through those experiences. And yes, sometimes it hurts when they leave (willingly), and sometimes we don’t even notice when they’ve gone. I can think of a few who have been so intertwined with me that they were able to figuratively move my soul.

The movie Somewhere in Time With Christopher Reeves and Jane Seymour really got me thinking!

If you’ve seen it, you know what I mean. If you don’t know what I mean, re-watch it. If you haven’t seen it, remove the rock you live under and then rent it.

Albeit the point that I am trying to make is that the very essence of love must be part of the definition of my preponderance today.

Make sense? I don’t mean sex or physical love (only). I mean, the real stuff. The stuff that Angels float around on. Prayers, maybe? Seedlings during allergy season? Blessings in disguise as humans?

That’s what I want to know. Whatever that is. In the meantime I am going to go and snuggle up on my husband and fur babies, while they’re here.

Amen 🙏🏻
