I Miss You My Friends


I miss you my friends

once there…ubiquitous

now gone

barely existent

It is not that I don’t want to see you

Life has a way of getting in the way

How I long for the comfort of knowing you are there for me

as much as I long to give you the comfort that my heart desires

I feel your pain like its my own

and I want to take it away

I want to make you feel better

feel happy

feel love

I miss you my friends

but I’ll be back soon

as soon as I unpack and tend to the humans I see in the flesh

the ones who missed me while I was gone

the ones who need so much right now

I miss you my friends

I knew that my schedule would change

but I will find a way to make it all work

because you all gave me something that is so important to my soul

that speaks to the divine light inside of me

I miss you my friends

and I thank you

for giving me the beautiful gift

that my soul desired




I have truly missed being here!  It feels as though something really important is missing.  I am adjusting to a new life and feel a little overwhelmed at the moment….doing things that need to be done vs. doing things that I WANT to do.  But it is all a balance and I will figure it out soon.  Much love to you all… ❤ Lorrie

  1. Ohhhhhh, blogging and the WordPress community really gets into the deeper parts of us, doesn’t it. You may not know it, but you are dearly missed as well. I look for your posts in my Reader and think, hmmmm, I wonder… I know that we are just newly acquainted, but I also know that it’s just the beginning of something deeper (and I’m looking forward to it).
    “doing things that need to be done vs. doing things that I WANT to do.”
    –I struggle with this daily. As of yet, I haven’t truly found the balance needed.
    Blessings to you, sweet Lorrie.


    1. Oh Staci…yes and YES!! You have hit the nail on the head. “Really gets into the deeper parts of us!” Isn’t that the truth! And I’m so happy that you look forward to our connection. ..and the depth of it…that is awesome!! I have trouble finding enough hours in the day to do all the things I want and have to do!! Everything will happen the way it is supposed to…I have absolute faith in that 🙂 Much love ❤ ❤

    1. Hi Julie! Thank you…yes…I know we all have been there. I am so grateful for my beautiful life …and I will be here when I can! I send you much love and hope your weekend is fabulous!! ❤ ❤


  3. Lorrie, the seasons of our life ebb and flow and sometimes we simply need to hibernate. I know all too well. When your spring arrives, you will come out roaring, ready again to jump into the river; roar, splash, feed and play with us as you so wonderfully share your life on this journey. Love and prayers to you. ❤


    1. Hi Susan! Whenever I see you in my email I light up because I KNOW you will say something that has so much meaning for me!! Thank you so much…your words are so comforting! Much love to you ❤ ❤


  4. Lorrie,, I found you on Mino’s website! Love your “About”! And I can identify with so much in this post that you say. The website & the blog cannot prevent life from proceeding. And after 3 years I am about to post less frequently, maybe every other month. You have given me more courage to make this change!!!!!! Thanks you so much, Lorrie. Phil from excuseusforliving.com


    1. Oh Phil! Thank you…I am so happy if something I started…and others added to…ended up giving you peace about something you were worried about!! You have made my day! And don’t fret…everything happens the way it is supposed to. I wish continued peace… ❤

  6. I missed you too. So I popped over here. 🙂 Much love! I agree we are a patient bunch. That made me smile. 🙂 I take little mini breaks a lot and don’t know how long it will be. My husband started school again so I can relate to things needing attention.
    Take care!!
