Universal Papaya

A Cheerful Heart is a Good Medicine
- Proverbs 17:22 NSV
When you ask something of the universe.....the universe... speaks back to you...Oh' yes...It speaks loud and clear and yells and hurls a papaya with that!
It has been a most trying few days after my weekend "ommm"...and I am here...trying..trying my desperate best to hang on to this twisted sense of smile I am still wearing.... A faint wail of a smile that is limbo rocking on a grass of nails...
Feel me...see me...rolling on a bed of fire ants desperately understanding the lessons of mundane life that can go.....
Prick...
Yah'... a prick...
life can be a prick..
oh'... but what a lovely prick
life can be.....
don't you see?..
sigh..sigh..sigh! ....
I am not whining...no..no..no..merely dumbfounded with how circumstances that will test your patience to the limits of planet nunu seem to bubble out of the blue when you thoughtfully intone that you will be...graciousness!...Incredible..unbelievable obvious irritants that can only mean one thing...
life is playing "eek - a -boo...I'll test you"......with me...
But..I think I have a choice in all these....so I'll just go out in my eeny terrace for some air...view the merging of purples and orange clouds on a smiley moon...and laugh...laugh...laugh...laugh..at myself..at life and how it is so alive and playing mimes on me....
There's a lesson there somewhere...and ..so far...so far..this Wednesday evening...instead of frowning..I just choose to go thankfully a' laughing!
Pliiing!...eeey'...come to think ov' it...no wonder I asked for graciousness as a partner........I sure do need her..
( fingers crossed till Friday smiling...smiling.....yah!!)
Ps: it started to rain..moon viewing cancelled...oh' well..hee!hee!

Well, if the smile is waning, or even if it disappears, I'm sure it will return. All you have to do is duck when the papaya comes.

Natalie said...

The tests...
Not standardized, or formatted for general use- no, each one is tailor made for us~

And even if we pass- we are often tested again tomorrow :)

Friday- I look forward to Friday- I think. Hubby worked all of last weekend - and I greatly fear he will be working all of this one too.
"Sigh"...
I need to go on another trip I think! ;)

Keep smiling :) Sometimes it`s tough but a smile and a positive thought tends to stomp out the negative ones waiting in the background to appear when you least expect them.
