HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT YOU WERE LEARNING THE WRONG LESSON??




It is often said......life is a "classroom"...."when the student is ready...the teacher appears"..I certainly agree with these two concepts.  However, I sometimes wonder exactly what lesson I am here to learn. 

 I think I know what the lesson is.....I think I have learned it.....then......only to have it reappear again in some other form.

I am going to be away from my blog for a while ......... attempting to sort out just WHAT MY LESSON IS.

Don't know how long that will be...but I need the time to focus....
Thank you to all of you who have been kind enough to follow me on this journey.  It is time for me to take a LITTLE DETOUR.

  14. Jo~ I certainly understand what it's like to need a break. What matters is that you follow whatever path your heart leads you to.

    I wish you the very best and hope that you truly find bliss in whatever comes your way. I'll be here when/if you decide to return. Be well and be blessed, dear lady.

  16. Well I hope you won't be gone to long. I enjoy reading your blog and sharing things with you.
    But oft' times in life, detours are necessary to make sure we don't get too far away "from what we intended"
    so I hope you are able to find your answers, learn your lessons.

    I remember a quote that says "how sad it would be to have the experience, but NOT learn the lesson."
    best wishes Jo

  17. Hi Jo. I'm stopping by from an e-mail from Miss Vicki. I'm distracted by the beautiful picture of a dahlia on my right.

    Keep surrounding yourself with beauty.

    Try to be selfish and take care of yourself.

    It's okay.

    And it's okay to find peace when others around you don't.

    I'm sending you an e-mail and a prayer.

    Keep your chin up.

  18. I think we learn many lessons in life...that we don't have just "one" lesson to learn. And I think it's a gift. xo

  19. Josette, I hope your little detour will be productive and fulfilling, and you will come back to us refreshed. The photo of this lady is delightful, I must say.

  20. Jo - I am going to miss the beauty you bring into my world but I want you to take care of yourself. That is what is important right now. Sending prayers for your inner peace.
