Everyday a Miracle

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle. ~ Albert Einstein

I believe that Facebook is miraculous.  Because of FB I have reconnected with people, in some case dear friends, in other cases former co-workers and extended family members, and in some cases, people who can fill in some of the missing pieces in my life.

Today I found out that a man I once loved dearly is no longer living.

I had moved away from Kansas and had lost contact with him in the early 1980’s.

I am numb and as I process my feeling and thoughts and emotions, a headache keeps flirting with me.

His name was Johnny.  He was eight years younger than me.  He saw me doing yard work and introduced himself.  Later he told me when he first saw me working in my yard he thought I was an old woman. I was 25.  I told him we could only be friends. Then I saw him in his Marine dress blues.  He took my breath away.

We had a wild and wooly three years together.

I’ll be working this one out for awhile.

What miracles has Facebook brought into your reality?

    Love this story. Isn’t it great to have those memories to hang on to? Even if they bring sadness or regret – all these emotions prove that we’re alive! Thanks for sharing. ♥

    I love this story but am sad for your loss!

    The only thing I dislike about blogging is that it leaves no written history for generation of family to come. Do you know what I mean?

    Thanks, Angie. You have a loving heart.
    Regarding blogging / no written history. I don’t think blogging is the “culprit”. As a society we pretty much no longer write letters or even talk much about deeper subjects during family get-togethers. However, I think this blog may lead to me writing a memoir. If not, maybe I will make sure to include more journaling in my photo albums!
