Life will find a way

It's been a tough year. Thanks to some awesome friends and lots of knitting I've been getting through everything fairly well.

I saw this sedum growing out of a crack in a rock and I thought it was the perfect representation of my life lately. No matter how tough it is - life will find a way.

Life will find a way


I know everything will be ok and life will indeed go on. I sometimes loose track of the big picture when crappy things happen. I think it's important - especially when things are tough - to focus on the good stuff. Friends, family, art, nature, beauty. It's all around us.

Have a great week and remember to look for the life in everything!

Here's hoping you feel all the love and support being sent your way while you are trying to grow in that hard place.

How true. It is easy to lose sight of the good around us. Nature is so pure and centering. Your photos of it always capture the beauty and make me feel like I am looking at that plant, that flower, that animal, in person.
Thank you for a mantra for the weekend. I hope you find much love and life around you too.

Tell us how we can help.
Even the sedum had water, and rain and some sort of dust/dirt/minerals.

I am hugging you right now. You know that kind you get when you are a little kid and squeak out " stop hugging me so hard, I can't breathe!" Then when you grow up, it's those kind you really want-- to squeeze all of the bad breath out. Wel, I am giving you one right now sister. Here it comes. {{{{{{{{jody}}}}}}}}}

Hang in there Jody. I wish I could say I didn't know how you feel, but as you know we are kind of in the same boat here. It's been almost a year and thank goodness we are almost to the end - hopefully forever!!! I'm here if you need to talk - too bad you live so blasted far away! ((hugs))

i couldn't agree with you more. kudos to you for being so strong through everything. i know this year has been especially difficult for you, but you also have so much for which to be grateful! sometimes i have to remind myself of the same thing.
