This is something I wrote 2 years ago, I put it away and forgot about it. Today I came across my old book and decided it was time to put it in print.



"A Narrowing OF My Road"


My blog is called "The Long and Winding Road" and is a collection of my thoughts as I travel along my road (The road is "Life") We as individuals all have a road to walk, for some of us the path is flat and smooth, for others rocky and uneven.

My road began to narrow very recently! This was caused by the sad and untimely death of my Dad. A major Juncture in my life, and one that will take months if not years to comprehend.

Suddenly out of the blue my road begins to widen? A very dear friend whom I had not seen or heard of for over 20 years got in touch, a ray of sunshine to brighten a very gloomy few months.

But then like a bolt of lightening my road starts to narrow once again? My friend is diagnosed with a medical condition that requires immediate radical surgery!!!!!

The moral of this short message is : Whatever life throws your way – "YOU" have to stay strong, use your network of friends. And remember to walk with pride down that "Long and Winding Road"

Life is full of ups and downs, a well used phrase I know but true none the less. We do indeed have to be strong enough to get through the bad times and allow ourselves to enjoy fully the good times that come along too.
