I am sad today

10My emotions flow like a stream over rocks most of the time, but every once in a while they collect into a little pool and swim there. Those are my favorite days, when the sun shines down upon the still water and reflects back into the sky like a handful of diamonds.

On other days, the current carries me over the barrier of collected debris and my emotions are battered against the wounded banks of the flowing stream.  It can be difficult to navigate.

I am sad today because someone else is in great pain.

  1. Just stopping by to say Hello! There is a lot on here that will take me forever to catch up with. Your right! Colorful! As expected.

  2. Hi sweetie,

    I signed up for your site when you first started this site but dang if it knows I exist… so doing this the manual way.

    I’m sorry you are sad but what a beautiful and descriptive way of expressing your state at the moment. I’ll send some good energy your way and to this person that is in pain. I don’t need to know who it is, because energy flows like that water you describe and even deeper. Know I’m with you and supporting you.

    Much love to you and create a great day,
    ~ish

    • Thank you Ish. I have had a problem with my feedburner subscriptions, apparently new subscribers are not receiving their activation email and without it the subscription remains dormant.

      Sadness is all part of the human existence. I am sad for someone else who is having a health battle with their life partner. Save the energy sent to me and send it all to them. 🙂

  3. Steve, only you could make sadness sound so beautiful. Best wishes to your friends. Both the ill one and the partner. They both need strength and love and having your support probably lifts them up a bit. When one is in a place of pain, knowing that one’s friends support and care about us, helps immeasurably.

    • Thank you Liz. I read about their health struggle on facebook, so our friendship isn’t a close one, but the mountain facing them is huge and it made my heart ache.

  4. i hope those friends of yours know what a caring, emotional, and generous friend they have in you. u r a spcail person to take on their pain also. i hope they find comfort in that and that things get better for them soon!

    • Thanks Ruby, but the people I felt sad about are not close friends. . .I just happened to hear about their plight and felt much compassion.

  5. Hi Steve…. I am sorry you are sad today….. I hope the day will bring you some joy…. and as I say to my friend…. this too shall pass…this too shall pass…and tomorrow is a new day with a new beginning…. take care my friend…
