Ghosts from the past

I was chatting with a good friend of mine this evening who has been a part of my life for over 20 years. As usual we cover a lot of ground in our conversations. But, tonight we touched on many of the people who have crossed over and have made impressions on our lives. This won’t be a long blog but it will touch on the people who have made the greatest mark on me. These individuals have been a part of making me who I am today. I carry them around with me in every single move I make.

    Hi Todd, you made an impression upon my life when i met you about 19 years ago during a summer job cleaning our schools. You influenced my life with your humor, joy, and laughter. I remember you gave our work group the gift of laughfter many times. You actually taught us how to fly. Now i have given your gift of flight to many others who when they see me flying from around a wall or door double over laughing. Now today you have tuched my life again by sharing your thoughts and experiences of your life. I identify with your story of fear and how it controlled your life. I too experienced fear controlling my life growing up in a very orthodox catholic family. This fear kept me in a physically abusive mariage for 8 years. When I started to let go of past agreements and thoughts i began to see how much fear was controlling and there disabeling me. Now I try to live a life of intention, peace, joy, and love. I am happy for you that you found the person you were ment to be.

    Your flying student, Tammy Starrs

    Thank you Tammy for your comment and very nice words. I hope things are going well for you. You deserve it.
