Thoughts and a Pretty Lil Thing
These are trying times, my friends, but I know that when I look back on these days someday in the future, we'll just laugh this off as just another one of those silly things that life throws at us every now and then.
The atmosphere at O.A.R. isn't as it used to be. The staircase where once the pitter-patter of little feet could be heard has been reduced to emptiness. People and friends have moved out, or moved away, or moved on.
Still, I will always remember the good old days with the games, fun, and lighthearted afternoon jokes.
Then again, when one door closes, another opens, and I've found such joy and fun in my own little corner of the world here at Westwood. Where once I had my little-girl friends and fancies, now I have my kiddos!
As always, Kipling puts it best. (The wise man, not the bag brand ;) although BOTH have their ways of keeping me sane!)
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise...
Then you'll have lived the best way you can.
Keeping my head,
Here's another version of Secret Garden (a whole different one from the one above!)
