Running Away

We always try to run away! Whatever the unpleasant task may be, we use all sorts of methods to escape the pain and that is what I have done. I am running from the pain of losing Leslie. 

Of course, that doesn't work. Our minds, our hearts, our spirits are part of us so we never escape that. 

But, I am filling my mind with new thoughts, storing the memories for a time when I can pull them out and enjoy those times again.

I am filling my heart with new feelings, not to fill the hole made by loss, but to give it a renewal of sorts. 

And, I am reviving my spirit, praying for peace, rediscovering that feeling of God's love and caring. 

It gets a wee bit better every single day. And, new surroundings are helping me focus on the now and not the past. 

This Sunday morning, I give you each a bit of my heart so that you will know how much you mean to me and how much your support and encouragement has strengthened me. 


  1. I am sending you a hug and saying a prayer in the hope it will help to sustain you.

  2. There's nothing wrong with a little "running away" helps us heal I think to give our heart new snatches of focus on the world's good. You will renew and return to all the reminders with some strength. Lovely photo, Mom! And I hope your time at my sister's will be a wonderful visit. Love you so much!

  3. Running away sounds like a perfectly good coping mechanism...better than isolating for certain. Course we never get over our losses; we get on with our lives in whatever circumstances become our new way of life. Sounds to me as if you are looking for healthful and good ways to move forward.

  4. Dear Latane, my love and hugs are heading your way. I hope you can feel them, there are more coming.


I hope you will visit often and leave a comment when you do. My blogging friends always put a smile on my face.
