Ravings and Rantings

Welcome to my cloud! It's got a nice silver lining somewhere.....Some ranting, some raving--mostly positive stuff,lots of jokes (I can't stay serious). Nothing going on here that a pina colada or mohito can't fix.

I Owe You

Isn't that a pretty song, world?

Anyway, as Jer said today, it's amazing how the angels are lining up. When GI came back into my life, or was it vice versa, I was certain that he/Dar needed a kidney or something. Hey it isn't like I don't have perfectly useful body parts! But lo and behold everything starts going nuts in MY life! AND he diagnoses me with something I didn't know I had (hmmmm). Then things start going a haywire both at work and at home and not only are GI and Dar the wonderful strong darlings they are, JER rescues me back. And co-incidentally there's a ladies' dinner with longtime pal and angel Doris!! On the night I need to see her sweet loving face the most (tonight)!! Thank.You.Lord. Have been hearing songs that mean a lot to me all day today on other people's radios. It's the sweetest thing.

And look at what friend Bob O in California sends me. He has no idea what's been going on, this is just one of his rare e mails, which are usually jokes. Thought I'd share it with you all since it's (a) ironic and (b) darn cool:

I believe- That we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

I believe- That no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a
while and you must forgive them for that.

I believe- That true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for
true love.

I believe- That you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.

I believe-That it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

I believe- That you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It maybe the last time
you see them.

I believe- That you can keep going long after you can't.

I believe- That we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

I believe- That either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I believe- That regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades and
there had better be something else to take its place.

I believe- That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done,
regardless of the consequences.

I believe- That money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I believe- That my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.

I believe- That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down, will be the ones
to help you get back up.

I believe-That sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me
the right to be cruel.

I believe- That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what
you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

I believe- That it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to
forgive yourself.

I believe- That no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.

I believe-That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are
responsible for who we become.

I believe- That just because two people argue doesn't mean they don't love each other. And just
because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do.

I believe- That you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.

I believe- That two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

I believe- That your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don't even know
you.

I believe- That even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to
you, you will find the strength to help.

I believe- That credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

I believe- That the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.

To this I would add one more,

I believe- That it's nice to be important, but more important to be nice because people may not
remember what you did--but they will never forget how you made them feel.

Buenos noches (sorry for the spelling), world.

    It's eerie how sometimes you get "messages" everywhere when you need them. Nice.
    Good list too. Too bad the more people don't take such words of wisdom to heart. The world would be a better place and those words would become common knowledge instead of epiphanies for the few.
