sorta like a joke


Today 
I'm linking up with
 
Thursdays are for Thrifters. 

...four-leaf clover: A
miracle, mutation, or
happy accident?...
My belt is thrifted.


...outside my window
sparrow makes a nest out of
what I threw away...

My blouse is thrifted.
True confession: The only make-up I am wearing,
 in these photos is lipstick & eyeliner.

..."Why do some people go through life never knowing a single major tragedy, and then others have horrible things happen to them
 over and over again?"
"I don't know."...
These earrings were once only pale blue.
Then I repainted them to shades of blue.

 ..."Do you believe I was a pretty good person before my mother died?"
   "I know it. You are still a good person."
    "So it doesn't matter if we are good or not-bad things will still happen to us regardless?"
   "Yes."
   "Why?"
   "I don't know."...

..."Why do you keep coming here every day?"
"Because you are worth visiting."
"Why?"
"Because you will come through this and be stronger on the outside.  You will help people again someday."
"Do you really believe that?"
"Yes it's inevitable."


Why do you need to come if it's inevitable?"
"No need. I want to be here when you are reborn-when you finally come through this and are stronger for it."
 
"Is that why bad things happen- to make us stronger?"
"Maybe, but truthfully- I don't know."...

 ..."There is nothing we can do to bring them back, but we can honor their memory by moving forward."...


..."But I don't think I can go back
to being who I used to be."
"Who were you?"
"Princess of Hope."
"You were, are, and still will always be a hopeful person,
 until you die."
"Why do you say that to me? Even now when you know I've got nothing left why do you put that on me?"

"Because I have faith, and it is riding on the Princess of Hope.
 I believe in you... I've seen your star powers"...
"Don't do that to me."
"What?"
"Put your faith in me. I can't take that kind of pressure now, okay?
I just can't take it!"
...flowers are in the
ground, where we cannot see the
future wonderment...

  16. I loved this post much more than any other... first, you look so beautiful, with that great top, the red bag - I lov it! And I loved the belt and the Sorta Like a Rock Star...
    We tend to go through life as if nothing bad will ever happen. And when they do, they come altogether, I guess... at least it was this way with me.
    I think I am a better person now, or so I hope.
    Guilt comes sometimes, but I can't do much about it now.
    So I go on living... learning... and trying to spread love, to help people. I hope my parents "are" proud of me.
    Thanks for this post... I get quite nostalgic on holidays (Easter now) and it's good to read your lines, they help me... remind me of what I have in life, which is great!

  22. Beautiful! As corny as it sounds, there's nothing I respect more than when someone's been through a lot, but never skips a beat and never takes it out on others.

    The bright colours in this outfit are gorgeous, especially with all that bright green nature. ;)
