R.I.P. Cameron Willett 6/8/1983-6/22/2010

You will forever be in my heart my friend....

Since the loss of you
I've learned to live for each day
And take it as a blessing
Knowing it may not always be this way.

Since the loss of you
I've learned that when everything goes wrong
To never give up on what is right
Because it can only make you strong.

Since the loss of you
I've learned that even when you're in a lot of pain
You've got to hold yourself together
So you won't feel like you're going insane.

Since the loss of you
I've learned how to hold the tears when I want to cry
Because all I have is memories
And just want to ask God why.

But mostly, since the loss of you
I've learned a life can be taken in the blink of an eye
And only Heaven really knows when
That person will have to say "Goodbye."

When the going gets good...

Wow it's been a long time since I have blogged because of how busy my family's life has become... It's 5:46 am and the past few weeks have been amazing for my family. Things have been going so well that I have become slightly weary of all this good fortune. I know that I should just take the good as it comes just like I do the bad, but it's funny how that sometimes it seems easier to comprehend the hard times then it is when good things are happening. I guess that is attributed to my inability to let myself think I deserve all the wonderful things that have been happening lately. I do have to say that it is a wonderful feeling to finally have a sense of security in my life and feel like we are progressing on the path of life exactly how we should be. I had held out for things like this to happen for so long and now that it has I am filled with a unmeasurable amount of hope in my heart for the future. Karma has giving me more then I could ever ask for in my life, so here's to life going exactly the way it suppose to and to the wonderful family and friends who get to enjoy life's joys with you.

Wow what a beautiful spring morning it's 5:10 and the birds are singing a song of the day ahead. This morning I would like to start the morning reflection with a quote "Karma moves in two directions. If we act virtuously, the seed we plant will result in happiness. If we act nonvirtuously, suffering results." Sakyong Mipham. It is so very important for us to realize that every little thing we do goes one way or the other on the karma scale. The smallest disruption or inhonorable act can brings us pain or suffering. I say this because even when you want to do something that is considered "bad karma" you have to really sit back and think about the ramifications. Small words can leave big imprints and send you flying in the direction of suffering. By being the bigger person and not giving in to nonvirtuous temptation you are ensuring the karma you have built up remains intact. As it is said the person who is acting nonvirtuously will see the effect of their actions in their life. So as our day goes on today and you are presented with moments where you can act with unkindness just remember that although you can use someone as an example in your generalities, pointing out someone specific and using their name will end in nonvirtuous outcomes. I know I don't need that!

A friendship that ends....

DISCLAIMER: Speaking in generalities, If you think this is about you then clearly you think too much of yourself...

Good morning everyone it is 5:54 am and the sun is out and shining down upon me this wonderful morning. This morning I would like to reflect on friendships by starting the morning with the quote “A friendship that can end never really began” Publilius Syrus quotes (Roman author, 1st century B.C.) You might be wondering why I would pick such a topic to start my day off with? Well that has an easy answer, yesterday a good friend proved for the final time that they were unreliable and untrustworthy. I have to be honest the person is very sick and in deep need of recovery, but we all know you can't force someone to get help. So this morning instead of picking them apart for everything that is wrong with them, I'd rather just pray for their recovery. Unfortunately I can't help them with how sick they are but I can look upon the good times of our friendship and remember what the beast of addiction does to people. The beast has claimed another soul and it will feed off them as long as it can till their is nothing left of them. So as we go on with our day let's reflect of who people were before addiction inflicted their lives, and remember them when they were happy souls. I know that the beast has to eat too and he found himself a feast. So here's to friendships that never were meant to be but taught us very valuable lessons.


P.S. Elise please don't cast a spell on me...   ;)

A misty morning.....

Good morning all, it is 5:34 am and this morning I am reflecting on the darkness that is still present. My quote for today is “A misty morning does not signify a cloudy day.” What I get from this quote is that just because a morning starts off looking as though nothing good will come that day this is often untrue. The rouge of the morning can sometimes fool us into thinking that the day ahead will only contain misfortunes. It is thinking like this that makes the prophecy come true if you make it that way. So this morning let's look past the dark thick mist, and although the sun may not come out to play today who is to say it cannot come out to play in our heart. Turn your misty and cloudy day into one full of rays of sunshine and you too will no longer feel the darkness within. I hope everyone has a sunny day in their heart today and finds a way to pass that on to others. I wish you all good fortune in the day ahead of you.

Let us rise up......

Good morning all.....I have to be honest I am not feeling well this morning so I think I will present a quote and probably leave it at that for today. I hope you all have a wonderful morning and be thankful for feeling ok today. My quote for this morning is “Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful.” Buddha (Hindu Prince Gautama Siddharta, the founder of Buddhism, 563-483 B.C.) I think this quote sums up the day to come well.

I've learned that people will forget...

Good morning all..... it's 5:39 am and my resident owl seems to be up early this morning hooting away. I feel like he and I have this special connection, he's always on time to wake me in the morning and in return I appreciate his punctuality and dependability. I would like to start this mornings reflection with the quote “I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Maya Angelou quotes (American Poet, b.1928). This quote invokes me to think about how everything that has happen in the past was merely a minuit moment in the past that no one shall remember. I am not sure about you but I have a tendency to glorify the bad things in the past, this quote reminds me that everything that happen then no longer matters now. What matters now is how I utilize the present moment. Today I think we should all look deep in ourselves, and figure out how we can pass our happiness on to someone else. Do you know someone in your life who is down and could use some uplifting words? Take a moment today and let that person know WHY they are special, little words have big effects on peoples hearts. Hope everyone has a great morning and a better afternoon!
