That’s not to say that no one supported my position (Katy, Sandy, BAP and Floyd). They give me credit for viewing my story through MY eyes, but others say when viewed through THEIR eyes, they feel hurt and accused.
At first, I argued that I was presenting the difference between yesterday’s church and today’s new rules and did not mean to be critical, but after a lengthy phone call from someone far removed (Neil) who said he took my reflections personally and did not like what he heard/read, I decided that my eyes must not be what they used to be!
In case you’re thoroughly confused by now, even though my eyes have gone from bi-focal to almost tri-focal, I can see that many will never understand that I didn’t mean to be critical. Few are going to view my stories through MY eyes. I accept that.
My family and friends already know that I’m my own worst critic and that my goal in life is to love from my heart. To give freely and unconditionally.
Like my eyes, I’m not perfect, but I’m working to improve myself all the time and surely do not ever intend to hurt anyone.
I enjoy reading reflections from my friend, Floyd, who writes from the heart, his views on life and living. Sometimes, like my sister Sandy said, they are too long for one sitting, but the articles always carry golden nuggets of truth and wisdom.
PS You may be stuck with this story for a few says. I'm scheduled for 6 12-hour days of nursing in a row. Leave me messages of strength!!!
Take Care on the Journey, ~Linda
