My friend Ila who passed a few years ago just came by and said you get up girl, we need to talk. I knew that was one thing I had to share here today before leaving this house. Well bear with me while I try to share that with you. This message that so boldly took over in my sleep, is one that is exceptionally special to me.
Every time I read it which is several times a day in fact, I sometimes smile, I might shake my head thinking of the darkness some families allow to penetrate among them and sometimes I speak out loud reminding myself of the calls I have to make. Sometimes we may have a really special bond with one particular family member, perhaps a Father or a Mother, an Aunt or an Uncle.
There are times when the inevitable comes in and places a wrench in your family and a member is gone and that special person to you is left on their own and you care for them, you pay bills for them, you take them to the doctor and make sure all their needs are taken care of.
That Father or Mother or Aunt or Uncle is still lonely, after all they miss the arms of someone to love. On their own they found a special person and became involved and now you are left on the outside looking in and you are feeling lost.
Once the one you put so much time into caring for and making sure they have everything they need, is now giving most of their time to a new person. Now you may be telling yourself that person no longer loves you and has replaced you.
You came in and did what you had to do when you had to do it. We have a time and place in our life where we have to nourish the lives of others and we need to know when to step back and smile and let it be.
It is never necessary for anyone to become argumentative, or hurl daggers at people they do not know. It will never prove to Bless you or to paint a loving picture of you, in fact it will do the opposite and push you even further and further away.
We have no right to tell anyone what to do with their lives no matter how much we love them. When people are of age, we much respect them and hopefully they respect us enough to sit and talk with us about situations that concern us but we can not jump in like a tiger and start smashing around causing great upset.
They will take the side often of the person they believe they are in love with and tell you to take a hike. Let me change places a little bit here, if you are the other women or man who have come into the lives of those who lost their loved one to death, perhaps divorce etc. If there is a son or daughter that is having problems with your intervention, you need to continually soothe your partner, not join with him or her and speak against his family member.
Trying to alienate and thinking you are joining forces with him or her will come back and bite you in the ass. Same to you Men who have a woman who is walking away from everyone for you.
Blending in is the only way, watching your tongue and living in silence for awhile can be a Blessing in the future. We have to give our loved one some credit for their choices and allow them to move forward. I know it can become complicated when we are dealing with property, money, materialistic items that are precious to us if left by a Mom or Dad.
Protect your family…there are people who will not take from you, who want all fairness, who will put your family first and make sure their partner is on the right track, there are some but not enough so protect your family. I came into the life of a man who had a daughter who took very good care of him.
He was also a caring man who was still in love with his first wife and believe it or not still cared greatly for his second wife. I had many discussions with him about both and his whole family, intense discussions and we delved into spirituality and found great Blessings and much comfort there, we had fun, we played, we sang, we cursed but at no time did we disrespect our families.
This week, I will concentrate on certain areas of family, that I can speak on through experience and it will involve loss and gain. Love you all always and why?
Well my motto…Love Is The Answer…. Take what you can use and leave the rest…. These innocent beings merely want to be loved, comforted, fed and enjoy life as a child. These children love us unconditionally and you totally confuse them when you bring them into adult issues.
You are literally forcing them to take sides and to please you, they will do just that.“Refer to Poem “Before I got my eye put out”. How far and in what ways does Emily Dickinson make the experience of sight seem powerful and important?” barnweddingvt.com barnweddingvt.com, 07 .
Sep 17, · That dramatic opening line, “Before I got my eye put out,” certainly gets the reader’s interest!
Yes, she continues, I enjoyed seeing as much as any other creature with eyes. Eyes are how we see the world and understand our place in it. Chapter 8. The loud creaking and jostling from the worn-out shocks of an old steam wagon greeted Burtrend when he finally woke.
Each sound and movement caused aching pain in the back of his head. In the poem “Before I got my eye put out” Dickinson shows us the beauty in what we see, not just the beauty of what we see everyday.
Far beyond that, the beauty that captures our eye and create an imagination, that struck with us forever. Her smile brought out her beauty with dark eyes twinkling.
"You aren't a child anymore. You have become a woman, transformed before my very eyes." Her tanned skin flushed from his compliment, making his heart ache and his throat constrict. He finally turned back to a smile on her lips but sadness in her eyes.
"Yes, I will. As far as having. Here, "Before I got my eye put out--" the same separation is displayed. The cat chooses to sit in front of the window pane staring at the sun, and ED acknowledges that she too liked to have see the world in the same way before her "Eye" got "put out.".
