Thank you Jerry.
Laying down your arms, surrendering, saying you are sorry, realizing that you have been on the wrong track and getting ready to start life over again from the ground floor - that is the only way out of a hole. - C.S. Lewis
“We plant seeds that will flower as results in our lives, so best to remove the weeds of anger, avarice, envy and doubt, that peace and abundance may manifest for all.” —Dorothy Day
Today is/was my brothers birthday - he would've been 65. He died at 51 - I can't believe it - 14 years.
Funny thing is the twins (my niece and nephew and God Children) were born a year ago today. And my GS who was named after my brother - was born the day after he died - five years later.
Sorry to touch a sad subject, but that is what I think of on 12/11. I'm glad he's not suffering anymore. I believe he's in Heaven. And he doesn't have to go through all the hassles of life anymore. I didn't feel that then though. You know in the Bible they talk about wailers - I thought HE meant criers - but no, wailing is a completely different thing, I wailed when he died - I lost a piece of me.
He had had such a hard life, since the very beginning and it never got easier for him - his life was always a struggle. Even though he was 8 years older then me, I was always his protector. He wasn't slow or anything, he was, well, he was just a different sort of fellow. He is as mellow as I was strung out (years ago) - I told you I was a work in progress - Thank you God!
