My wish ...

They say you can count on one hand,
the people you can count on.  
It's true.
I'm blessed,
to have that many
and then some.

It saddens me that a majority of them
are dealing with situations, physically and emotionally,
that are beyond what most would call challenging.
More people than I know are facing crisis'
they never saw coming.
So for all who find themselves in need...


It's my wish that your healing comes sooner rather than later.
It's my wish that you continue find the strength to push
through pain more difficult than you care to admit.
It's my wish that you find peace in your lives.
It's my wish you find the clarity you seek.
It's my wish that you be surrounded
by those who will lift you up,
that your hearts are filled
and overflowing with joy.


It's my wish that you always feel love's gentle embrace.
It's my wish that the universe will show each of you,

a little tenderness ...

One Love. One peace. Always and all ways.

Kathleen so well thought of and I'm finding that their is more saddness then it age!

I do reach out a lot but some don't want my hand! I've been patient but I stopped trying, it seems in many ways they get got up in their sorrow that they don't see yours or others.

But in the end you say you've tried and blessed with the one's that do accept and take hand,love and help!

Sometimes Sarah,

some need to hold their own hand.
Sometimes the best thing you can do is to let go.
Let you always come from a place of love, and in time they'll find their way to you, to the love you have to give.

And not always do they, life is such that people come and go. Cherish the time you have, you had
with them, wish them well. Love them enough to let them be free.
Carry with you no bitterness.
Sometimes we're blessed because we did, and they did, (let go).

In the end Sarah, it's all good.

goodness I'm sorry I didn't mean to preach. know that my words are heartfelt.

one more thing, at the risk of saying too much,

ultimately we must lift ourselves up,
it's nice to have support a long the way, maybe it's a luxury, I don't know.

you're right people get caught up
in what's happening to them. there are times when self care deems it necessary.

surround yourself with those
who are able to give. wish well,
the ones who aren't.

everything works out in the end,
one way or another. It usually works out better when we let go.
when we let go of the things we think we want, we think we need ...

when we let go ...

we get exactly what we were/are supposed to have. there's perfection in that.

shaking my head, I don't know what
you said Sarah that got me on such a ramble. My apologies if it was too much, I think it might have been. I probably need to walk away from the keyboard now. hahaha.

No need to apologize Kathleen
sometimes it's from experience what your saying and is too short and I agree, I have let go of many people in my life! And their are the one's that are meant to be in our lives at the moment, and believe me I cherish every, every, moment!

Be well,

Get outta my head! You post just the things I need, when I need them.

It's what I do man. I'm psychic like that.

Love baby love.

Sometimes just having a hand extended is enough, not everyone will take the hand but that isn't even the point...just knowing there is a hand there if you need it makes the journey bearable. There are alot of journeys we need to take on our own, finding our own paths. Just knowing that there are hearts open for us and a hand available is enough. The support helps to not only endure but move forward and past. Sometimes the best "best hands" are an ear and a sholder.

Kathleen (One Tree Past The Fence) said...

Jan, you are so on point. I couldn't agree with you more. I really like the way you contribute, to this world, to this community, to this post ......

so glad we met. I guess I get to thank Chuck for that!

Amen, sister.
Love you.
Photos are gorgeous. So are YOU.
