The Carpenters, It’s Going to Take Some Time This Time
The Carpenters have always been my favorite group. The beat, the voices, the rhythms, every thing I have loved about them.
We go to school when we are very young, and we learn our ABC’s, and we continue through our school years, preparing ourselves for college and being proper adults. Did anyone teach you about how to accept changes once you achieved adulthood? For me, I know the answer is no, they did not. Being a business leader, or a doctor or nurse was the goal.
When I got married the first time and then became divorced, I listened to this song over and over. It’s going to take some time this time to learn how to live on my own.
How about when we had children. Were they more than cuties or beautiful? Were we prepared for raising infants to adults? I wasn’t, so once again I listened to this song as I carefully went into motherhood, trying to not make too many mistakes.
When my mom passed away, I didn’t think this song was going to help me, but it did, and when my daddy passed away, I wore this song out. The line of this song still holds true in my heart, because I am still trying to take some time to get used to not having my hero in my life.
Now, I have let my brother go. He is being cared for others while along with my help, we are all doing our best to make his life as pain-free and happy as possible. Parkinson’s Disease as my friend Jo, says, isn’t pretty. I don’t know how much time it is going to take this time, but I am trying to be patient, giving time to heal from the loss of him here with me, praying for time for him to find inner peace, and time for me to get prepared for this nasty disease to keep progressing, with God holding my hand.
I hope you can feel me by your side Terry
i always sense when you are thinking about me my friend
Love this post … and the song is beautiful – even if I’m not a fan of The Carpenters. When it’s about Al, did you the right thing – and he are well taken care of now – so happy that you have accepted that bit. You have taken massive steps .. nearly jumps. So proud over you. I’m walking just behind you. *smile
i don’t think i would have been able to get to the point as soon if it were not for all of you helping me. it was a very hard decision to let him go, but day by day he is happier,safer and so am i . my health was beginning to take a turn for the worse from the added stress. thank u for being here for me my friend
No wonder that your health was going downhill – you should go for a total checkup and get all your values checked and fixed if needed.
I’m a bit bold and too honest at time, but it’s all because I care for you!
I do go to the doctor just like you do for regular check ups. that is how i knew my health was going down hill, but i can feel it starting to climb back up now that the stress is beginning to leave. i do love it that you care, because i care about you also!
