It once was found, but now is lost
But, lost by someone else you see
For in the finding you may lose something else
Its all a gift you see
We never really own anything. Sometimes we have things for a moment, sometimes we keep things for a lifetime, but that’s limited too isn’t it. It’s all fluid. Whatever we have at this moment with objects, people in our lives, jobs, activities, etc. It’s a gift, and here for enjoyment now. Our never ever ending eternity of now.
Last summer we traveled to visit my step daughter as she opened up her new photography studio. While visiting, my stepson found Ray Ban sun glasses. They had scratches on one lens, but we had them repaired and my husband enjoyed them until ironically our step daughters next visit here, when they were lost, for someone else to find and enjoy.
When you own a home and land and you move, change jobs, or end a relationship, slowly acquaintances from those association become more and more distant, and new people in your life emerge. You miss and want you’re old friends, and property, but you also welcome the addition of the new.
You get older, your children grow up, your parents need you more, and everything changes, all of our bodies, minds, interest, and surrounding.
We’re continually changing, adapting, and this flow that’s continually going is always bringing, and always taking.
Life goes on, and so shall we. Let’s enjoy our gifts of today, and whatever comes our way.
Just a thought…
