It was there all along
Funny how the mind thinks that it can protect you by not allowing the pieces of a puzzle to be seen as a whole
Once connected it almost seems incredulous that one could not see it before
It was all there
For many years
It was not hidden from thought as one might suppose
It was hidden from meaning
Events seen separately for years
Each creating their own brand of misery
Were a smokescreen
A haze….fog in my brain
To disconnect truth
The thinking mind
The feeling heart
The bleeding soul
From feeling the betrayal
The worst kind of betrayal

I’ve been keeping up with your posts constantly
Thank you my friend 🙂 I can feel your presence and it brings a smile to my face 🙂 Thinking good thoughts about you ♡
Sadly, what you write is so very true for many Lorrie.
And then, the light breaks through.
Thank God for the light Louise!!! Thank God ♡ I am grateful for your support! 🙂
The mystery continues. I hope our minds and hearts find harmony in this grand puzzle called life. 🙂 Hugs to you dear Lorrie.
Thanks my friend, Brad 🙂 Harmony is a beautiful word…a wonderful feeling. I’m so happy you are here…you give me courage ♡♡
Likewise my courageous friend!
So many of us go on that journey of discovery Lorrie and uncover similar emotions.. This was beautifully scripted Lorrie… Love and Hugs your way x Sue
Hi Sue! Thank you so much 🙂 I hope that all is super in your world…I see a few posts from you in my email….I will be over soon to catch up. Much love…many blessings ♡♡
No hurries… In your own time my friend xxx just good to know we are here for each other xxx
Recognizing how we numb ourselves in order to survive, is an empowering step towards the truth. I am with you on this journey Lorrie.
Oh, Val…Thank you so much. Yes, I can feel that you are here and I am so grateful for the gentle and kind support. This was a very incredible healing for me from pain that was buried for so long. As each layer is peeled back we find that what is left can be whole. And I am so grateful! <3
For some reason the theme song to the Mary Tyler Moore Show runs through my mind and I hear the words “love is all around you” and “you’re going to make it after all”. I encourage you to take a walk and through your stylish hat (metaphorical or not) in the air in celebration because love is all around you and it is all within you and you have made it after all. Meow. Harlon
Oh, Harlon…such music to my ears!! I love it…I loved that show…and I can remember twirling around our living room…with a hat (real) of course and throwing it in the air!!! Thank you friend for the memory, for the smile, for the love!! The series is close to the end…it will end on Easter morning…not planned that way but there could be a metaphorical connection there 😉 I will be over soon to catch up. Thank you so much for your beautiful support ♡♡
Love your words Lorrie! I especially enjoyed Harlon’s comment! 🙂
Thanks, Andy!! Oh…I know…I loved it too. Made me want to twirl and sing 🙂 Thanks for being here ♡♡
Lorrie…I know of some of your pain. You are so strong to be able to recover from it and share it with us. I think the world of your courage, my dear!
Thanks Steve 🙂 I was afraid at times to post this for sure, but I don’t think of it as courage…if my words could help even one person then I feel it is sooooooo worth it! Thanks for being here…I so appreciate your support ♡
You always have my understanding and support. I want to be here for you in any way I can be.
I feel the same way as you do. If even one person is helped in some way by what I write, be it spiritual or personal, that’s what matters!
Lorrie, you have a very nice Easter weekend, and call on me as you want/need to!
<3 <3 <3 !!! Lots of Love and many hugs <3 <3 <3
Thank you dearest Trini…hope you feel better ♡♡♡
I’ve thought: why didn’t I see that before? Now I realize the pieces come together when we are ready. I was thinking of the song: “I can see clearly now, the rain is gone…..” It might take some time to adjust to the new view, but the bright sunshiny day and blue skies are the way! https://youtu.be/FscIgtDJFXg
Yes, JoAnne…divine timing 🙂 You will see an amazing example of this at the end of the series on Sunday!! It all still blows my mind a bit…but then I stop and say…of course it is all perfect!! And how much do I love that you had a song in your head too!! I was in 6th grade when that song came out and I can remember my teacher singing it one morning with the radio…it was the first time I had heard it and I instantly loved it!! Can’t hear that song without getting a smile on my face!! Much love to you my friend ♡♡♡ I hope all is super!!
You said what I couldn’t in such a beautiful way. You are helping, know it or not. It makes sense to me now. Thanks.
Oh, you dear soul!! I send you so much love…and I send my arms to wrap you in a super sized hug!!! If this too was your experience I cry with you and I also hold your inner child with love. I urge you to seek help dealing with these feelings that you have. Everybody heals differently and in their own time. If you need me I am here for you…you can email me from my contact page. Much love…and beautiful freedom from the pain ♡♡♡
Not to worry, dear heart. Had lots of help and done lots of healing. Some days though, it just creeps up when you aren’t looking. No one goes through unscathed. Still counting my blessings too.
I’m so grateful!!!! Thank you for reaching out to me…I really appreciate it. Here’s to healing!! And love ♡♡
