This Week...Passing Time and Change

 

This month’s challenge from Jeff Dowler, CRS is one of those I love because it gives us a chance to learn more about the other members here.

Everyone needs reminders that the fact of their being on this earth is important and that each life changes everything. Marge Kennedy



It can be cathartic for some. For some, it’s a reminder of where time has taken them over the last decade.  And often for those who may find it difficult to “speak” their pain or sorrows, writing about it allows them to share with others in a format that they are comfortable with.

I always knew looking back on my tears would bring me laughter, but I never knew looking back on my laughter would make me cry. Cat Stevens



I began Jeff’s challenge as soon as he announced it but it has not been easy...fun and rewarding but not easy.

Many remind us not to dwell in the past however it is important to acknowledge it, learn from it, appreciate it, and then go forward. 

 

In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on. Robert Frost

If you get a chance head to Jeff’s post...What a Difference a Decade Makes-The July Challenge for You...and read the entries and you still have time to enter your own post. 

 

Enjoy every minute of your weekend!!!

I have had a tough time with this one too. Still not sure where to start...it has been interesting to read all of the posts though. I guess I still have a few days...we shall see. 

Also, love the Robert Frost quote.

Hi Kathy Streib to say the least it's been and interesting and challening post to write for myself and it appears others as well. So much good has taken place as well as sadness with losing loved ones. It's all part of life and our job is to move forward, love more and spread as much goodwill, joy and happiness as possible - and that's a lot!! Frost takes the cakes today with many of us!  LOL

Hi Kathy Streib - I agree that it can be very cathartic to write about one's losses.  But, I like the journal aspect of writing. It is your own personal history and helps with recall bringing smiles and memories.

Barbara Todaro don't you love that quote!

Sally K. & David L. Hanson these are the challenges I love because you get to know a little bit more about another member. 

Michael Jacobs the Cat Stevens quote is one I had to read and reread to fully grasp and not sure I do.

Wayne Martin Life goes on sounds so cold to me and yet it's so true. 

Nina Hollander it's been fun to learn more about others. 

Dave Rosenmarkle so true. And even when you get to be a certain age, it's important to remember that life does go on.

Lottie Kendall I agree. No life is a perfect one but can strive to live it perfectly. 

Carol Williams I agree. As I've passed through the years, I've learned that things have a way of working out. 

Brian England even the difficult times help us to have a multidimensional life!

Morning Kathy.

There were times when I thought about all the things I've seen and wondered, why.  It was not for me to judge, I just chalked it up to being a part of the job and moved on.
