So …. THIS is how I have been feeling of late and WHY I haven’t been posting until now.
I have had SO MUCH TO DO – I have basically not done much of anything.
Kinda felt like this here little guy.
Goin’ – goin’ – goin’ and at the same time NOT goin’ much of ANY where!
Then I had this “epiphany”, and I was “shocked” once again back into reality.
Life is short. None of us know the hour or day that we will breath our last breath. Personal experience you might say. A new leash on life. Someone tells you, “Hey, you had better make some changes or you you may not be around in a year.” That get’s your attention!
So I took a good look at my rather lengthy “to-do-list” – coupled that with the growing sags and dark circles beneath my eyes.
That was ALL I needed to bring me back to life!
Time to RE-PRIORITIZE!
I am changing MY ATTITUDE and changing my TO DO LIST as well. Taking some advice from one of my Favorite Celebrities.
The Pink Panther
I’m gonna put a little swagger in my step and sing my list!
and of course let’s not forget – I’m definitely going to make time to….
Today I went to work like every other day and left feeling totally different.
I wasn’t prepared to hear the news that came from my co-workers,
“Hey you know the heavy set lady who works down in the caff? She died today. She found out she had cancer just last week. Doctor told her she had until Thanksgiving – Apparently not.”
Wow. Hours later those words are still resonating in my spirit,
“…the heavy set lady in the caff……she died today.”
A woman, a wonderful co-worker of mine (we’ll call her Karen for privacy sake…BUT we WILL give her a name for dignity sake) Karen it is!
As the story did go, Karen only just found out she was sick a week ago. Sick with cancer. STILL – Karen came to work. Thinking she had until Thanksgiving.
She passed away – today – at work.
Having given untold amounts of hot sandwiches, cups of coffee and millions of smiles away! I know I will always remember “Karen”.
Still – I have to be honest – this entire unfolding of sudden events has left me some what shaken.
p.s. you were never anything less than beautiful to me!
What would WE do if WE were told we only had a month left to live?
Because You Believe in Me
I am here.
You are here in me.
Because of this I know I can be;
all that you say you want me to be.
I’ve tried so many times.
I’ve climbed this mountain before.
I’ve done all that you’ve asked me to do.
I’ve lived through the things you’ve brought me through.
Here I sit, still;
waiting on you.
To make me all that you said I should be.
I don’t see how but I know that you will, because you believe in me.
You’ve always believed in me; the only one who ever believed in me.
With you all things are possible.
With you, before I see it, it’s done.
With you, before I’ve begun to fight, the battle is already won.
You are the Almighty and you are my God.
You are the Lord of Lords and you are my God.
You are the Creator of the world and you are my God.
You are Alpha and Omega; the beginning and the end and you are my God.
You are Jesus, Savior of the world; and you are my God.
Because you are the Omnipotent and Supreme One; what you say shall be done.
What you have said in fact is already done. Though my eyes do not see it yet, it is so.
I am already become what I do not even know.
Because you believe in me.
