A loss of life has me questioning my faith/beliefs. I have never been keen to label myself one way or another. Rarely are things in life either black or white, we live in the gray. I am currently being tested on what I believe and I’m reevaluating my stance.
Today my family suffered a loss, one taken before given the chance to achieve. I am not sure what I do or do not believe but I know others are certain. I am leaning on you now. Say a small prayer or send good thoughts into the world for my sister and her husband in the next few weeks, today especially, and to our family in general.
I know others are in need as well, so tonight I’ll be thinking of you and wishing good thoughts your way. Also, I’ll be taking some time away from the blog to focus on family. Thank you in advance for your kindness and support. May your life path be paved with happiness and hope.
The Largest TV
I am tell you, weird writing prompts.
In my house (I live with my sister) I own zero television sets. There are 4 TVs in the house with the largest at 60″. The big TV is great but watching movies on the other sets has been spoiled by the specs of the big TV. I am not into all the bells and whistles of electronics, as long as it does it’s job it is good enough for me, but my brother-in-law has an affinity to the Samsung brand. Practically every electronic is the house is a Samsung. The large TV is impressive but I watch Netflix on my Kindle, so I really am not the person to ask about this.
So new topic.
Truth or Hope
Tonight I was watching one of my favorite programs from across the pond and one of the characters said the line, “better to deal with the harsh truth than a false hope.” And it struck me as an interesting idea, does the population fall into only one of either category or is there a gray area where truth and hope can coexist.
Would you rather (love WYR questions) always hear the truth or hang on to the idea of “what if’s” or “maybe’s”?
I am not really sure which I would choose. I think it depends on the situation. Of course, I always think I would choose truth but sometimes it is not necessary to be hurtful. I am a firm believer in the adage, if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all. But of course, it comes down to the situation.
