Reflections Before Bedtime #4

By: Gabriela Yareliz

When you keep someone at arms length, you eventually lose him or her. You lose him or her in the crowd of people who influence you and whom you are trying to please, and you lose him or her in your fog of fears.

I think men who spend time at hardware stores are good husbands.

It is good to pray for strangers.

Something as simple as literally slowing down your pace can give you more peace.

Acceptance will come with the right offer.

There is something passionate about a torrential rain.

Family is the most magical group of people whose hearts will be linked together, forever.

Honesty is the best policy, and it is ok to say you don’t know.

Why is it ok to embrace uncertainty to harbor doubt, but people say it is not ok to embrace uncertainty to believe?

Does anyone else miss playing Candy Land?

A little boldness goes a long way.

The family remodeled a bathroom in 24 hrs, changing even the light fixtures. (I can explain an outlet box to you.) There is nothing this family can’t do.

Love is not about loving the idea of someone or loving what that person could be. It is about loving that person as they are in the present, with his or her battle scars and ways. It is about knowing that each person is a different world, but love will help two worlds coexist. This kind of love means: sacrifice, pain, commitment, loyalty and a willingness to never stop learning.

Mr. Feeny, where are you?

Some people choose to be fickle and come and go like waves in the ocean. Others choose to be constant as the stars.

Time (and life, for that matter,) waits for no man. So live, truly live. And love, truly love.

Always expect miracles.
