    1. Thank you for reading my story and for your comment. We all have a story to tell and we all have ears to listen. Helping others, in turn, helps us, too. It’s true, some things remain a mystery, we can find no “why” or reason – not in this lifetime anyway. We all just do the best we can. Love and light to you. I apologize for not responding earlier, I came back to this today to remind myself how very lucky I am and was blessed and grateful to find your words here.

      1. Hi, don’t worry at all! I did not necessarily expect a response. I am glad I could just leave my thoughts. But I am even more glad that you like them. Thank you for coming back and replying. Have a wonderful day!

  1. A very powerful post Mary.
    Your paragraph referring to when your children were little, reminded me of a situation when my children were little. A neighbours child was at our place pretty well every day, that was not a school day, even all summer. The child was not particularly a top friend of my children, and my children were getting annoyed by this girl being at our house all the time. I kept reminding my children, “just be nice”
    The neighbour child had lots of material things, but came from a fractured home, and my wife shared with the girls’ father, we don’t have anything to offer, but the girl was always at our place. His reply, “Yes you do. You have love. You have peace. You have harmony. You have stability”
    That statement has carried me for many years, and has reminded me that I am VERY, VERY blessed.
    Thank you for sharing Mary. You are indeed a very rich person. I was blessed reading your post. THANK YOU!

    1. Thanks so much “Old Fellow” 🙂 I apologize for the delay in responding. I haven’t revisited this post in some time and came tonight to remind myself of all the things I have to be grateful for. I’m so happy that little girl found love and peace in the presence of your home and with your family. I’m sure it changed her life and that she remembers it and all of you well. I’ll take love over money any day. Thanks so much for taking time to read and comment, yet one more thing I have to be grateful for.

  2. Problem is mostly created by our own desires. Sometime we don;t have to solve it but distinguish our desires,
    and that needs the compassion to ourselves. Realize our needs insides before going to solve any problems.

    Thank you so much for sharing this. :))

    1. Thank you, Jade, for reading and commenting. I apologize for the long delay in repsonding but haven’t revisited this post in a long time. I’m so glad I came back here tonight to remind myself of all the wonderful things I have in my life. We do need to look to ourselves, our spirit, to truly come to understand what we are to be learning from what we are experiencing. Wonderful perspective, thank you.
