A great quote from an amazing lady!

Wow, 2 days in a row!!! Just a short post today… I saw a few quotes and wanted to share. I’ve been reading a lot of other blogs lately and often see and comment on what I read. I hope that some of what I write about is as worthy to share as what I read and that my blog is worth following for some. I know lots of people read it...I marvel at the stats counter each time I look at it. Please feel free to comment on my posts now and again so I know that people can relate to what I write. If you follow my blog I’d love to know!

“I have been through a lot and I have suffered a great deal. But I have had lots of happy moments, as well. Every moment one lives is different from the other. The good, the bad, hardship, the joy, the tragedy, love, and happiness are all interwoven into one single, indescribable whole that is called life. You cannot separate the good from the bad. And perhaps there is no need to do so, either.” Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

What an amazing woman she was. Someone that we could all learn from. To survive all that she did, to endure all that she did and not to let it consume her. She was so right…it is life. The sad times, hardships, losses, devastation and the happy, joyful, love filled moments…they all make us who we are. There is no way to separate the good and the bad, there is no need to. It makes you who you are, entwines all the things that make you who you are and calls itself life.
I think I’ve had a pretty good life so far. Sure it’s had it’s ups and downs, it’s joyful moments and it’s tragedies but it is what it is. It was given to me for a reason and is mine. I am sure there are many who think I dwell too often on the tragedies…but maybe that’s just part of who I am too. I don’t live in sorrow, I live in joy but with many reminders of how I came to be who I am.

This one is pretty unrelated but pretty sweet I think and reminds me of just how happy and blessed our angels are to be living in Heaven….

Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy. ~Author Unknown

May you gaze to Heaven tonight and see and feel the happiness shining through those holes knowing that you are loved and have the life that is yours.
