The things we have grown to love

Morning, hope you are all well.  I am a little flat this morning but I do not think that is such a bad thing.  My days and weeks have been so busy recently that I have started to become a little absent minded, receiving a message from my neighbours next door letting me know that they had taken a parcel in for me and that I had left my door keys in the front door that morning put things into perspective.  I am so grateful to have good neighbours.  I stuck to my word and I have been meditating, doing reiki treatments on myself so there have been periods when my mind has been quiet even if only for a short time.  There just seems to be so many things to think about at the moment, so much to do, life is very much transitional for myself and I seem to be stuck between the old life and the new, with the new not quite ready to manifest.  The pressure I have been feeling is immense and so last night I had a reiki treatment.  The reiki always goes to your highest good, afterwards I felt calm and peaceful, yes I feel a bit flat this morning but I think that is what I needed, I needed to be grounded in myself after all the world wind activity.  After I go and get some fresh air shortly I am sure I will feel fresh as a daisy. 



Also the two kitties Lenny and Eddie have not been very well either, both having a really horrible virus.  It has not been very nice to see, I of course have been in complete nurse mode.  If Lenny and Eddie could speak I am sure they would tell you they have been looked after well 🙂  They are still not 100%, not quite out of the woods yet, but they are still managing to break into the bedroom at 6am and claw the bed so I guess they are feeling a little better.  Here they are tucked up in bed yesterday:-

Witnessing their illness produced some really strong emotions in myself, I found myself fearful and emotional, I was worried that I may lose them.  They are both 19 weeks old and they moved in 6 weeks ago, not a very long time but they have a very large presence within the home.


 Losing something or someone you have loved and cared for can make you feel vulnerable, it can be frightening, upsetting and confusing and when we have found ourselves in this situation we often ask ourselves why did this have to happen? Sometimes there are no reasons it is just life as it happens.  People come into our lives and then leave abruptly or sometimes we can see them slipping away from us, it is often a situation that we have no control over.  These situations are never particularly easy to deal with.  I always find it best to be kind to yourself, do not deny yourself the emotions that you are feeling, let them come and go and let time do the healing.  Whatever you have lost always look for the gold in the situation and smile with your heart and soul.  Take with you the lessons learnt, what can be left behind and what can be taken into the future.  I am going to end with the poem  “people  come into your life for a reason….”  I know I have used it before but I quite like it and besides it holds truth and relevance…..


When someone is in your life for a REASON. . .
It is usually to meet a need you have expressed.

They have come to assist you through a difficulty, 
to provide you with guidance and support,

to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually.

They may seem like a godsend, and they are!

They are there for the reason you need them to be.

Then, without any wrongdoing on your part,
or at an inconvenient time, this person will say
or do something to bring the relationship to an end.

Sometimes they die.

Sometimes they walk away. 
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.

What we must realize is that our need has been met,
our desire fulfilled, their work is done.

The prayer you sent up has been answered. 
And now it is time to move on.

Then people come into your life for a SEASON….
Because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn.

They bring you an experience of peace, or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.

They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.
Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons
things you must build upon in order to have 
a solid emotional foundation.

Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person,
and put what you have learned to use in all 
other relationships and areas of your life.

It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

  1. Can’t believe your including “reason season lifetime ” in your blog today because on the way over to Leza’s yesterday I was tring to recall the words !!! I had them given to me by a spiritualist just after my dear friend Lorraine died over two years ago. Glad the Reiki helped I certainly felt a whole lot calmer and able to put a different perspective on a couple of things that were niggling.
    Glad the boys are a little better.
    Have a lovely weekend and I will see you soon
