Beautiful Curry


I was sad yesterday about several different things. It wasn't a debilitating depression or crushing heaviness. Just a sadness like a cloak over my shoulders.

I had special people that I love around me most of the day. Barbara's hugs and Nelly's smiles and little emails do wonders for me. But there are things that are sad and need grieving in life and yesterday some of those were keeping themselves in the forefront of my mind.

By the time evening rolled in, our three boys had dispersed to other locations for the night. Heather was busy playing and Byron was serving up the most fantastic curry that he had made for me. It was hot and tasty and had just enough coconut milk in it to sweeten it. It was amazing.

We sat outside in the lingering warmth and ate this good food. It was good to my taste and good to my heart. I sat there, spoiled rotten by this boy who makes a killer curry. Beautiful food! Beautiful boy!

My wife always says 'let the feelings pass through you'. It's so easy to resist negative feelings rather than let them do their work. That little comments has helped so many people I know. P.S. I'm a friend of Brian Heasley.

I sure love you and your beautiful mess, Lisa.

I'm here with your family right now, watching King Kong. Heather just got up from Elisey's lap and gave me a hug saying, "I like being with older girls! Especially today, because my mom is gone."

I feel like that, too. I think that's one of the reasons I like being with you. xoxox

I love you Lisa...I guess I will never be able to express how much I do...I can't help feeling sad as well when I think of you all leaving, but I'm learning something with that... it's good to feel sad, or "saudades", for loving or missing someone so much... it feels better after I think that :-)... I can really say I do love you...you are really special to me :-)...
and I can't believe I lost that curry...bummer!!!
We need to make a Moamba one of these days by the way !!! :-)
May God's PEACE fill your heart...
