The Silent One

Tuesday, September 15, 2009 |

The past few weeks have been extremely long and over loaded with LIFE.
I've had large issues to deal with, choices that have been made for me that I wouldn't have chosen, and directions I don't agree with.
However, I've not been alone during this time. There is no one near me or next to me but I feel a presence.

As I go along with my daily tasks, I feel unexplainably comforted.

When random thoughts pop into my head, they are acknowledged.

The unspoken questions within the quiet of my thoughts, are answered.

Uneasy feelings, are calmed.

Uncertainties, given strength.

The unknown or grey areas, are shed light.

I know through life experience that these days shall pass but for now,
the Silent One has become my confidant, my co~pilot, my new friend.

It can truly be a blessing to have a Silent One when you are going through a tough time. The fact that you have acknowleged and made peace with it, will hopefully get you through and on to the other side.

Hang in there!

Life does have a way of being too busy and a little out of control and glad that you have comfort and peace, through the silent one.
Sending hugs your way.

Hi again Jo!
Nope, I have never recovered anything. You mean like a piece of furniture? The best I have ever done is use a staple gun to recover a footstool, but something tells me you mean something more complicated than that! :) WIsh I could be more help! Let me know what you are working on and I will help if I can.
