This Life

"You deserve the fun, the joy, the freedom and the pure goodness that flows through the experiences of love that indwells you. The choice is yours."
~from the book: The Intelligent Heart

In so many ways I've been blessed in this life. If something happens to me tomorrow, say I go to the doctor and am told I have terminal cancer, I'd still consider myself to be ahead of the game.

What I'm about to tell you, dear reader, risks making me sound seriously strange. Strange, as in you may very well think that I'm mentally disturbed. But, deep breath, here it goes...

I believe I had just surpassed the exceptionally mature 7 year-old mark, when I found myself wide awake in the middle of the night, with my eyes glued to an age appropirate documentary on the topic of reincarnation. That's perfectly normal, right? I'm sure all second graders watch the Discovery Channel when they suffer from severe insomnia.

While I could humor you by giving a play-by-play of the people and their current and past lives, I won't. I'll spare you the horrid details, as simply recalling them gives the heebie-geebies.

But, what I will tell you is that for years and years, I would lay awake at night and pray that if reincarnation was real, and if I was reincarnated, that I would return to the same life with the same family. Very strange, right? Well, it's true. Very, very true. And sometimes, on days like today, I'm reminded why.

I have a fantastic family- a family that never forgets about me. A family that always makes me feel loved and cared about and important.

Thank you for today. I loved every minute.

And, if reincarnation is real, and if I am reincarnated, I still pray for everything to stay the same.

Ok, that was me. Jack had the computer last and was still signed in...

He would call this post "adorable"

Sweet post! I personally don't believe in reincarnation, but I do believe that we'll continue to live with our families after this life. It just makes sense to me - God didn't put us here to love and care for each other just to break us up later!
