Who of us lives this life without problems?
Inside hidden from family and friends and the outside world we all keep hidden things from public knowledge.
|Terry offering chocolates at Christmas.
"Life's a box of chocolates, Forrest. You never know what you're gonna get." from our favorite movie, Forrest Gump.
Through out life our choices determine our path. This path is fraught with hills and valleys as we gain in strength climbing and descending.
Same with that darn box of chocolates. Without the lid you do not know what you are choosing from. What if you hate nuts and you bite into it and the chocolate candy if filled with pecans?
Mom taught you to smile and chew it up and swallow it.
I bet you are still doing that today with everything in your life.
|Grampa Ben 1926-2010
This man took it all in stride. This is Terry's Dad. We lost Ben from our lives last year in the fall. His smile and his whistle are missed but his love continues with us.
So many of his teachings stay with our family and with those teachings many quotes from his heart.
The one that comes to mind this morning as I am typing is
"YOU CAN GET GLAD JUST LIKE YOU GOT MAD."
So whatever trouble you feel over weighted by, it is time to hand them over to God and get the heaviness off your shoulders and out of your life. Pick out a new piece of chocolate and smile.
