Life’s spin cycle at ‘warp factor ten’ and then some…..

I have missed my writing, as up until now I had not realised how much of a safety valve it is. Time is tight and I am logged on to work right now, but here goes for getting a short piece done.

Life picked up those in my immediate circle a few days ago and hit ‘warp factor ten’ and our ‘beam us up Scotty’ button malfunctioned. In the ensuing maelstrom, heartbreak happened on several fronts.

The only thing that has kept these broken hearts functioning in the ensuing days is love.

My soul buddy and I found ourselves facing a ‘leap of faith’ decision and having taken the first one, there were several decisions to be made after that. My buddy has been remarkably calm throughout all this and it’s directly thanks to him that I have eaten, been able to work, sleep and function at anywhere near my usual ‘humourous Boadicea’ level.

On Wednesday we followed our instincts and started to put a firm foundation underneath our future plans. Me, (sick with nerves), was checking that we had done the right thing as we drove away from a possible fresh start to make our way back to base. As we pulled back out onto the main road there appeared the brightest rainbow in front of us.

May that rainbow be shining a bright way forward for all those struggling this week.

    Jane, I am MOST pleased to tell you that as my hubbie and I drove out onto a main road after an appointment to consider managing a rehabilitation horse farm some years ago, we drove right into a rainbow with a gentleman kneeling in an open field, uplifting fold hands in prayer! What an affirmation for that venture. I am still learning much from those experiences on that farm as the lessons unfold gradually in my heart and soul. Praying for you, dearest sister Jane!

      Hello Rose, members of my extended family run a horse centre for the disabled in Australia..I can onyl imagine the wonders contained therein. They are on my wish list to visit. Life’s rainbows are unfolding in their own way here and thank you for your kind you xx

    Jane, they say there are moments that open up your life like a walnut cracked, that change your point of view so that you never look at things the same way again. I’d like to believe that every single one of them is like that; perhaps the only difference is in our willingness to see the miracle unfolding. I envy you this wonderous journey, but await with anticipation as you share it with us. Thank you……..and be safe. ~ Much love, Bobbie

    No greater sign is ever given us than rainbows. I have seen them at some very meaningful times in my life … I am sure you are on the right track, listen to the colors of the wind – All the best, Peter

      Thank you Peter for your lovely comment. It is a big shift happening now isn’t it? I thought all the necessary changes had happened, but life is still shoving. Keep faith, trust and, as you so eloquently say, ‘listen to the colours of the wind’. Love to you xx
