One Of Those Days ~

A photograph can be an instant of life captured
for eternity that will never cease looking back at you...

Yesterday was just one of those days I felt the need to go back in time.  Nothing bad or wrong
 about it as long as I don't "stay" there.  To do so I pulled out old pictures.  And of course 
as I looked at them I was once again transported to another place, another time and 
the memories came back vividly.  Nothing one can do about that.

So I enjoyed them.  I reminisced and some of the memories had me crying. Crying for 
what was and what no longer is.  For people who came into my life and who
 are  now gone.  Again nothing one can do about that.  The above picture 
was in Palm Springs California, one of the most beautiful times
 in my life and one of the saddest at the same time.

I cried for Brutus and all that happened.  I cried for Shadow and
boy how it aches to hear that dryer thumping away right next to me.  I had me
a good cry and after that I felt a little better.  Nothing we can do about
what has happened.  I don't dwell on it, but coming home opened
 up wounds.  I will not lie.  EVERYTHING reminds me of Brutus!

Looking back also I found pictures of me and my sisters when we were so young. When
we had no care in the world and had no clue where our lives would take us.  Looking
 back it is hard to imagine that we would all go through so many rough moments
 and get stronger through all of this.  Life is a lesson like no other.

Sometimes it is good to look back and see how it used to be.  It brings so much
into perspective.  When we were younger all we wanted to do was grow up, leave home
and be independent.  That we have done, but what we never realized was how difficult
it was also going to be.  What we took for granted, is something we have learned now
 as adults.  Life is not easy, but you do the best you can with what you have.

I try to not take much for granted.  You never know what tomorrow holds.
If you love someone let them know it now because tomorrow may be too late.

To all of you, a good day.  Remember to always collect beautiful moments.

Every now and then my heart wanders back in time 
and all those old feelings awaken the memories in my mind..
