where I would like to be

This is where I would like to be...right there, on that very spot. I would even like to be with that girl in the picture...she is special and makes me so happy...but I'm not there, I am here and she is living out her life splendidly, fabulously and I will see her in due time.
Instead...I have been home, not feeling well with this August heat and have been alone. It is very quiet here and I have been left a little too long, but I heard something peaceful that made me appreciate this moment in my life...
"It is wise to be content when you are alone...the silence is peaceful and a gift...of the calm that follows each storm."
I embraced that quote and embraced being alone, silent.
There are no storms swirling around me, everyone I love is where they should be, doing what is right for them.
This is good and peaceful...and I am content.

How can anyone not love you when you write such a beautiful post. It is so often difficult for us to embrace what is (yeah, that is from experience I'm afraid!) but to embrace what is--well that is to live out Galatians 3 & 4!

I am hoping you are feeling better- you are in my thoughts and prayers often throughout this ordeal. You are a strong woman reveling in the silence. xoxo

" be content when you are alone..."

That was a hard lesson for me - a social butterfly since I was born. But now - in my single state - I am finally very content to be so. I realized that the other week and got big joy from that realization. Man, God sure has brought me a long way! I know that's different than what you were talking about here. But that's what popped into my head.

Love you.
