Happy Friday Friends,
I hope you have had a wonderful week.
I am watching with remarkable faith in spirit
our friends Sandy and Stew
show us resiliency at its finest.
The work next door continues with most of the furniture now in the dumpster and the dumpster gone.
The soot smell is diminishing or
we are just getting used to it
the great news is that the house
and windows are in there now
the doors are secured
soot is being removed
KILZ is being applied to the walls and the ceilings.
Sandy and Stewart are not
their spirits are great
they are not
“woe is me”
have they been
as they have moved from the initial shock of driving up as I did from being away on my speaking tour to a street closed by lights flashing and the smells and horror of their lovely home blackened
and violated in such a horrible way.
Not once have they
crawled into fetal position
taken to the
“why me or whatever will I do now without my recliner or our bed”.
I admire their resiliency,
they have taught me much
one thing is certain,
we’ve talked a lot about the importance
but using all now.
Why in the world “save the good china”
We’ve now laughed as
Stewart enjoys each meal
and rates it every night in what has become the
“DLB hour of praise of her meals”
(rather sickening) haha
but the man does know how to enjoy
a great meal and give “props” where “props”
He has told us repeatedly that he tells Sandy to not work so fast next door cos’ he is not wanting to leave here
since the meals are so soooo goood!
And on the other hand
just last night said,
“Here I sit, a man with three women in one house, now to think some would complain about losing almost everything to a fire… ME? I have NO complaints! Look at how I am living here, with three women, great food… I am doing great here!”
We do have great friends… and a horrible thing happened to them, to their sanctuary of their home.
they have not been lessened by it, they have not been stopped by this crime against them.
They have risen like the Phoenix from the ashes
the person(s) responsible
for this crime
will be caught, they will be… I do believe that.
But the lesson and the message for today
When you look around
it is truly remarkable
the human spirit.
I am so very honored
to know and to love
Sandy and Stewart,
and to call them our friends.
We’ve walked many a mile in these three weeks
together; miles equal to years and years
together around this table
that time nor space will never separate
or take away.
is an unforgivable sin.
take out that China you have been saving for best, throw it on the table, put your hamburgers on there and use it today or this weekend.
Use your best everyday
BE your best every minute of every day
We have this day
to do and to be
that Creator gifted us with
DREAM in living color
EE and CJ
out there in Colorado are working the dream
and it is coming together…
Here is the link to her blog
what a wonderful read.
subscribe to it, it will come right to your email, comment on it, and tell her you too are a warrior here on this page of
FIRM has to remind us she is playing in the gulf everyday and snorkeling;
our beloved sing me A is hugging her angels while taking time to check in,
Joe is dancing on desks on a Monday
many who are anonymous
are loving us
Sandy in Michigan is being watched over by the hawk, her beloved husband
Chris is out there our breast CA Warrior
Tonya is in NC married now and happy as she can be; a two time CA survivor
Laura is still kicking MS butt and raising funds for the CURE here
the list goes on!!!
I am soon (next week) going to be shouting out for some help here
for EE in Colorado with a “scooter” issue
who has an electric scooter with a broken arm that “medicare will not pay to fix”
and it needs fixing to make her able to
“zoom zoom zoom”
across her new home-town there.
I’m sure we have some folks here who can make this happen.
but know this:
WE ARE WARRIORS OF GENTLE SPIRIT HERE
dreams do come true
along with realities
strength in times of adversity
being bent rather than broken in times of heartache
survivers walk with dignity
ashes the Phoenix Rises…
