The Confusing Middle has given us the word, ‘Forgiveness’ as this week’s Prompt. Before I get into this:. Why don’t you go visit the site? It’s really cool and thought provoking….I’ll Wait…
Twiddling my thumbs…do do do do, do do do, do do do do,..do,.. do do do do do, thinking weird thoughts, hmmm..do I have time to o…Oh, You’re back? Great! Hope you are a new Follower for them, now.
Okay, So the first song I think of when thinking of Forgiveness is the one above.
But, Forgiveness does not have to be romantic. God say to forgive others 70 x 7, I believe…I could be mistaken. I know there are a lot of 7’s….
Anyway, Forgiveness does not mean forgetting or that the hurt is gone. Emotional and even physical healing takes time. It doesn’t mean you have to let those people back in your life, either. Forgiveness means you can keep going through life without the hardness in your heart or your need for revenge. It means learning about and setting up Boundaries that you decide and will accept.
So, there’s my post on Forgiveness, and if you didn’t like it, Forgive Me for wasting your time.
A blogging friend at ConfusingMiddle here on WordPress has given the prompt of Neighbors, this week. If you haven’t checked out their blog yet, I highly recommend it.
Anyway, Moving Forward:
Years ago, they sang a song on Sesame Street or Mr. Rogers Neighborhood titled; “Who Are The People In Your Neighborhood.” The song was a bit off, though, because it focused on the Postman, the Policeman, and the Milkman. It made no reference to the Drug Addict, The Hoarder, or the Crazy Cat Lady…Not just me.
I think your Neighbors are the ones who live near you. In my case, in the mobile home park, I live in. If you live in an apartment complex, it’s those residents. The ones in the immediate vicinity of where you live.
I have talked a bit about my Neighbors, as some have become friends; like J. who is moving. Speaking of which, it is now Official, and she will be out and probably gone, next week.
Be sure and tell me if you sang the song I mentioned, and if you have it stuck in your head now
Every week, my friend at ConfusingMiddle gives us a prompt of sorts, and this week is Compliment. Technically, it was last weeks since the new prompt is tomorrow. But, I digress.
The other day, while grocery shopping, a gentlemen said, “I like your hair!”…I don’t because the color is coming out but am waiting til it’s warmer to update it because you have to use cold water to rinse it if you want the color to stay. Yes, I am aware that was a run-on sentence. Take a breath and deal with it…. During the same shopping trip, another gentlemen said, “That outfit looks really nice.” I was wearing black leggings with a silver stripe down one leg and a black shirt with a cat in the middle. Anyway, those Compliments from unknown people really made me smile.
I prefer compliments that are legit and not forced, and I am not afraid of giving them, either.
