“Do You Reach for it When it’s Not There?”

My blogging friend Diana at Talk to Diana ended a recent post… https://talktodiana.wordpress.com/2015/08/16/i-dont-know-what-time-it-is/#comment-16458 

…with the question, “Do you reach for it when it’s not there?”

I believe it’s a profound question that covers many things. Yes, sadly I have, and all the desperate grasping for it in the world wouldn’t enable me to have it. It’s only when I let go and thought of other things that I was surprised by receiving what I’d needed all along, but often in a package or way that was quite different than I’d expected or thought I’d needed.

Thank you for the thought-inducing post, Diana.

With Love,
