  • Sandy shared some good medicine for her son and all of us in her many families!

    I am blessed to be a part of her life ... so I am seeding her story to link her gift of grace to my online "storytelling family" here at Cowbird.

    I waited to marry until I was 37. By that age I had gone thru a number of what you might call FIRST LOVES. Starting in my teens with a few boyfriends, followed in my 20s and 30s by a few bad boys, some good men, two of the "tall dark and handsome" types of man", plus many loved close friends (female/male), a calico cat, one black dog, LOL ... I even had a decades long crush on my dad (who died when I was 8) and last but never least wonderful crush on my good looking golfer brother Jim-Bob!

    By the time I met Kirk (my husband of the past 28 years) I was starting to learn that I would never have control over a partner and I would need to accept them for who they are. This of course means I am free to be just really "me" ... a changing growing life form on planet earth; and we get to do this as a team!

    Sandy said it is like being "mirrors to each other" giving both the opportunity to look into our current image as well as deeper inside when we want to or need to!

    Perfection is not a goal anyone really needed - two men I also have loved said a little about Perfection:

    Bob Marley - “...I know I'm not perfect and I don't live to be, but before you start pointing fingers... make sure you hands are clean!”

    Salvador Dalí - “ Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it.”

    Yes, I agree my dear hearts Silt CO siblings, relationships are never easy or smooth sailing and yes it is often like living through a "storm" ... but it gives us gifts of rainbows, lighting, thunder, blizzards, and the warm badly needed summer rain fall!

    Now for a healing water song to all of Colorado - mainly my sweet family there:

    WaterFall - by Cris Williamson

    Sometimes it takes a rainy day
    Just to let you know
    Everything's gonna be - all right
    All right

    I've been dreaming in the sun
    won't you wake me up someone
    I need a little piece of mind

    Wake me from this dream
    That I have dreamed so many times
    I need a little piece of mind
    Oh, I need a little piece of mind

    When you open up your life to the living
    All things come spilling in on you
    And you're flowing like a river
    the Changer and the Changed
    You've got to spill some over
    Spill some over
    Spill some over
    Over all

    Filling up and spilling over
    It's an endless waterfall
    Filling up and spilling over
    Over all

    Like the rain, falling on the ground
    Like the rain, falling all around....

    Sometimes it takes a rainy day
    Just to let you know
    Everything's gonna be - All right
    I know, I know, I know all right
