How far could we fall?

This picture was taken out in Eastern Canada by my sister in law. I always thought that it was an intriquing picture. It always reminds me of how easily one could fall through the cracks in todays world with the world racing by us at the speed of light or so it seems some days. It also make me think of what to do if you do find yourself in a situation where it looks dismal and dark. It has stormed alot in my life, but there have always been many more sunny days than not! Today is one of those days. I am having my friend and her family come and stay with me. We have stayed in touch over the phone for years, but it has been approximately 15 years since I have seen her, We will hug and we will say, You still look the same, I would know you anywhere. You see we are two women whom are not affected by growing older....I wish,,,when I look in the mirror I see wrinkles and I feel wonderful because I am alive and well, I own those wrinkles, I have lived and there mine and I am keeping them. Now theres not that many mind you, I am not afraid of them, there me, whos to say what happens next. Will I own it like the rest of my life. I am not sure. Will I admit and come to peace with all in my life. Do I need to or can I just be content to live as I am now, seeking truth from my past, present and future. This gal is not falling through any cracks in the system. Trust me on that! I have had too have too many struggles in regards to insurance companies, doctors, etc. You have to be strong and fight for what you believe, hold your head up high, and take control of your life. Never give that to someone else, or for someone to tell you how you should be, feel, think, etc. Lord I don't know where this is coming from, I am in a great mood, just feeling strong and alive today. What a blessing!


  1. That picture is fantastic Cinner!! I'm glad that you are feeling better lately!! Have a great day my dear friend......between a flatout weekend and sick kids I really feel like I need my batteries recharged!!!
    Love ya gal

  2. I am sure you do Kathie, try to get some time for you, easier said than done. I really wish I could join you gals on your Friday nights. Think of you often, Love ya back, c

  3. That's a good picture for this not falling through the cracks post. You certainly do sound strong and at peace today. I like the way you say you own your wrinkles. We should all feel like that. We earned them! Good for you.

  4. Have fun with your friend! I can't wait to hear about your visit. Hugs for a strong day.

  5. Hi Cinner-
    Great photo and great words of determination and wisdom.
    Enjoy every moment with your friend.

    Love Gail

  6. Hi Cinner, you do sound happy and strong, good for you. So much to look forward too, and I think wrinkles show character....:-) Hugs

  7. what a strong visual ... GAWD I love stone ... it always has something to teach.

    every one of my scars, my wrinkles, my gray hairs, my bags & sags? a treasure. I'll never be a Botox babe, never hide what I've earned in physical wear & tear. I'm SO happy to hear you're feeling good and strong today and I hope your visit rocks & rolls, C-Woman!

  8. Toni, I love stone too, I will never be a botox babe. when I first got sick I had headaches so bad that they actually put botox in my forhead and top of the skull. So my forhead looked about 20 and under my eyes were 45, i thought I just looked odd, it did not work for the headaches. I am excited about my visit,,,could not even sleep last night. Hope all is well, I will try to visit your blog before she gets here, if not in a couple of days.

    Hi five Bernie, I don't mind a wrinkle or 10 at all. they are laugh lines right, even on my hands. lol. take care

    Gail, i read your 100th post, I am now more aware of your story. You are a damn strong woman. We have to own it to get through it. I check every day to see if you have a new post.take care my friend.

    Holly i am so excited I could hardly sleep last night. I won't be on here for a couple days I think. So if i am not around you know why. Take care, big hug.

    Techno Babe, thanks yeah I thought the picture was appropriate. Own those wrinkles I can't get rid of them so I may as well enjoy them. Maybe one day I will look like one of those wrinkle dogs,,,where you touch them and all the wrinkles move. I wonder if I would be as popular as the dogs. Take care. LOL

  9. The picture is amazing!
    Hope you had a wonderful day with your friend!
    Keep up with your strong spirit!


  10. The place in that photo is one we should really look out.. What a very beautiful post. Very insightful and inspirational. Cheers to you and your friend! :)

  11. Wrinkles are not so bad.
    The past, the future..."now"

  12. Hope your enjoying your visit!! I caught your post a day late. Have a wonderful day.

  13. cinner, ask your friend if this picture was taken at The Rocks (Fundy National Park) It is only about 30 miles from where I was brought up and though it's been a while since I've been there and I've been told it has changed a lot this really looks what I remember it to be.
    Lots of hugs........:-)
