Pro CHOICE

ahaha I chuckle at the title of today's post - why? I have personal beliefs on this and for what it's worth they're nothing to DO with have or do not have an abortion - BUT

Today is one of those days when all of the sad things seem to pile up at your door and burst through like so many dirty clothes you should have washed over the weekend...know what I mean? Nothing concrete, just a thought here, a look there, a missed phone call and perhaps that text from your daughter you were excited to see but when you opened there was nothing more than "could you send me some money." So I did, I'll admit it right here and now, I started to sit back into the comfortable hollow of ill-feelings and sad stories...I took along for my drink a bitter cup of forgotten woes and hot scalding memories...as I melted into this overstuffed, over-rated feast of fetid fetters the thought, tiny and ringing just lightly like a fairy bell in a thunderstorm "you have a choice." I sat up...

WHAT?

YOU HAVE A CHOICE - louder I heard it and ohhhhhh okayyyyy...

At that opportune moment my good friends and coworkers brought to me a much better beverage - Passion Tea
Appropos isn't it? Passion Tea at the very moment I was sinking into the apathetic womb? THANK YOU MY FRIENDS!!!!

Next an email from my "older sister" across the way...she asked me the simplest question and then she ended with "or would you like me to bring them to you my little sister chickadee??"

now THAT brought the smile back to my face - aha! someone DOES value my existence!

and so the choice was made: TODAY IS A GOOD DAY...the world is a shining beacon of hope for amazingness to happen...

I hope you have a good day TOO!

We all have days like those, and one, kind little thing happens, and all of your cares disappear like magic.....or a nice cup of tea!
Big big hugs!

My amazing friend
You have a lot to offer.
You have poetry and light inside you.
I mean it.
Not a lot of people do these days.
So...well,just let it shine Shawna!
Let it shine!

...and that, with however many years we are blessed, is the crux of the matter. CHOICE. We make our own heaven and our own hell. On that happy note...have a great day. Blessings...Mary
