Checking in

Just checking in on a Friday evening. It has been a long week at work. Some weeks the days repeat themselves with numbing repetition. I wander through the time in a fog wishing hours away and in doing so wish my life away. I was sent home early from work today and that was fine with me I had lost interest in the day way before it even started. I am new at creating my own joy and that is what I must do-when I get in these bored restless moods I have to come up with a way to stop the process. It is difficult for me to feel too joyful when there is so much suffering in the world today-the news out of Haiti is so sad. It makes ones problems seem selfish, self centered, and small. I can only send prayers and best wishes to the people of Haiti, but those prayers come from a heart full of love and compassion.


  1. If the joy within us had to depend on the state of the world, no one could ever be happy, Lorrie. There is always something awful going on somewhere. Actually, we need to find something that makes us happy, inspite of all the trouble in the world - how else can we exist? This is not to say we shouldn't be touched by tragedies - of course we must. But that is not the sum of your life...

  2. I noticed yesterday everywhere i went people seemed kinder, maybe even a little shell shocked.
    We're all in this together, and something as tragic as the Haitain earthquake reminds us of it. ITs wonderful to see the world pulling together to help.

  3. I told Julie this morning that yesterday when I was in the grocery was so quiet in there. Really odd. I think everyone was thinking how lucky we are to be able to walk into a store and be surrounded by food....

    I can't stop thinking about it either....

    more later, dear friend

    kary and buddy

  4. We've all been having the same thoughts....such tragedy and heartache we have witnessed in Haiti.
    Prayers and positive energy do make a difference but I do feel helpless.

  5. I know exactly what you mean, I look around society and feel so sad....I wonder when and how it can all stop there seems so much anger around so much agression and hate...I see it at work and in the faces of my pupils, their views and opinions shock me especially as they have learnt them from their parents and I am not sure I can change them although I try...but I believe in prayers and send them every day...

  6. my wish for today is that i can somehow make a matter how small..thanks for the reminder!
    loving you
