It Is Not About Me!


Yesterday I wrote a blog post about taking responsibility for our own happiness. At the end of that post I added some personal information about myself to let the reader see I am just like her/ him. Basically it said I know it is my responsibility to take control of my own life and not blame others for my problems; because that will get me nowhere in resolving any issues I may have! Looking to blame others forever regarding our problems will not solve a thing, so it is important to accept responsibility for our own peace and happiness and move on when the time is right. In other words “don’t wallow in self-pity.” And don’t get stuck in the same old story.

Then today I was looking back on some old posts and came upon a post from two years ago, during the time that my mother-in-law passed. This was a tremendously emotional time for me, my husband, and his family. We went to Florida expecting to be gone, at most, for a week and did not return for 17 days. In those 17 days we spent time with his mom, we helped get her into hospice and then we stayed in her room for 4 days and nights while she went through the process of passing on. It was emotional and so draining…….. to read the rest of the story stay tuned! Article will be published on EzineArticles soon!

God spoke to me this morning! He whispered in my ear..that you need me.

butterflyThis is so simple…. regardless of what happened, or who stopped talking to who, or where the breakdown in communication happened; if you need me I am here for you. No questions asked. If what you need is for me to move forward and never revisit the past with trust that we are soul sisters and these things happen between siblings…..then I am OK with that.

Was I OK with it yesterday? Probably not, and maybe you knew that, maybe on a soul level you knew I wasn’t ready.  And I accept that. But today is a new day and I sense a need and this morning during prayer God whispered in my ear that you need me. He said I should let go of the pain and lack of understanding. He whispered that I am the person you need; because we are one. And you know that. The angels are still pushing me, encouraging me, whispering that I am saying the right thing and it is just a matter of you hearing…..

Do you hear?  We love each other and no matter where you were or what you thought; you know that is true. This has been tearing, little by little. at your heart. It is time to take that step out in the faith that all is well and we are not better off without each other.

And yes! I ask for forgiveness; for anything I have done to cause you pain.

Maybe there is a need for a different relationship….maybe so. Whatever the case’ it is time.  Do you hear this message? Are you receiving it? Are you receiving this message of unconditional love?
