BE THANKFUL


Times are difficult for Tom and myself at the moment as they are also difficult for all of us.
Who would have thought our lives would have been turned upside down with the goings on in the world right now.
But it can all be dealt with if we just take a moment to look around and be thankful for what we have and live in the moment and not dwell too much on the past or the future.
I found this really moving song and it just says it all.

  3. So true. If we dwell on the troubles they get a whole lot heavier.

  4. Things do indeed seem a bit crazy, but you're right -- only what's happening now is real. The past is past, and who knows what the future might bring?

  8. I'm so sorry, Briony, and I continue to keep you & Tom in my prayers. Try to get out a little bit everyday and perhaps take a ride in the car, if you can. Fresh air always does a body good, you know? Being in a different atmosphere, besides inside the house, always helps me too... but I understand if you can't right now. Stick close to us here and let us offer you support via our comments. You are loved!! ~Andrea xoxoxo

  10. Only a day or two ago I saw the same idea on a grief website - get through the pain by living in the now. Good advice. Thanks for this, Briony. I keep you and Tom in my thoughts.

  13. Beautiful emotive song. It it hard to push aside what has happened and happing! IMO I would not like to live in the now but in the past but that can't be so! I so agree with you :-) I find music can be an escape and I know you like that. As others have commented if you can get out and enjoy a seaside breeze,the wind in the trees and sitting listening to the woods so boosts the mood. Take care Amanda x

  14. I like the fact that this direct and appealing song does not reference religion. If there is to be beneficial change then it must come from people, not from any god or religious book. I hope that you and Tom have a nice weekend.

    1. I'm with you on religion YP. I think that there is some kind of energy out there that we can call on in difficult times to give us the strength to get through, I've called on it many times but I can't call it a name like God or Buddha for example.
      I went to a church school and went to Sunday School but after my Father died in the most horrific way it destroyed all my faith, that's not saying I lost it overnight, it took a long time to completely rid myself of any guilt for not believing but I am at peace with myself and my beliefs now.
      At the same time I say to all those who have a faith and believe it works that's fine but don't proselytize about it.

    2. I don't recall you telling the story of your father's death in this blog. Perhaps it still hurts after all these years and you want to keep it private which of course you are entitled to do but now I am intrigued.

    3. My Dad was put into a mental Hospital after continually complaining of pains as they said he was imagining them. 2 weeks before he died they conceded that there actually was a problem and sent him to Hospital where he was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer and died. You can imagine his despair when we all told him that he was imagining it on the advice of the Doctors. He was a skeleton be the time he died. I can never forget it and have a deep mistrust of Doctors now.

    4. So tragic. What an awful episode. He shouldn't have had to end his days that way.

    5. That is such a terribly sad thing to have happened to your father and indeed your whole family, Briony. I'm so sorry. No wonder you have no faith in doctors. What an awful mistake to have been made. xx
