Fueling GUSTO

My grandson called me the other day. He said “Granny this year I can pick whatever I want to do for my birthday” (his BD is in June..and he continues) “So I want to make sure you’re not working so you can come”

Immediately I felt the sting in my nose. Without hesitation he says; “I want to have it at the dog beach”.

His mom let him know that you have to give Granny notice due to her having to make her schedule for the hospital “way ahead of time”.  

You know how they say when you are about to die your whole life flashes in front of you? Well, in that moment, with hot silent tears streaming from my face I quickly responded; “You betchya, I will put in for that time off right now”.

We have no idea how our lives impact others, especially our very own families.

True, life’s seasons have a way of striking force; death of a loved one, rejection from a beloved, however, one needs not absorb their emptiness. Rather fuel the memory of once was cherished, the hope which “could of , should of, would of….” yet, remembering that choice of abandonment, wasn’t yours, so…just LET IT GO AND MAKE TIME….to hear.

Hear the future, ENJOY LIFE as the gift it was meant to be

About Brenda

"Brenda adores the birds. She is enchanted with their grace, their beauty. It was the birds and being out among them that gave her the peace she so needed and forged a new passion She uses a camera to capture those incredible moments, to savor them and share them with others. For her the camera was freedom. Brenda spent her life healing others, and dealing with incredible pain and despair. The world of birds and nature and photography was what she turned to in order to see the beautiful side of the world" -Eric Curtis Cummings
