Good-bye~ what does it mean really? A goodbye means that someone's departing: you say goodbye to your parents when you go off to college, and you also say goodbye to guest when they leave after a visit. The original goodbye, dating from the 1579's, was godbwye, which was a contraction of the farewell phrase "God be with ye!" definitions of goodbye.
Goodbye's always have been difficult for me. Like so many of us the older I get the more it seems I am saying goodbye. I like the the phrase "God be with ye!", but I don't like saying goodbye! I like saying " I will keep you in my heart until we meet again", this will be my new phrase, It works better for me than goodbye.
So to all those family and friends that have passed this life, " I will keep you in my heart until we meet again," to all my family and friends that live so far away or plan on moving far from me. "I will keep you in my heart until we meet again and always".
When we say Good-bye
Yesterday is Gone
I begin with the statement "yesterday is gone". Gone with the wind like the sands of time, gone like the rivers that flow into the sea.
I haven't written in years and those reading this or my other blog writings from years ago will understand that I believe in freedom of speech. I believe in respect, respect of other persons, respect of life in general.
So many things have happens to all of us over the past few years. I have gone thru Chemo and radiation, surviving Thyroid Lymphoma and Lymphoma. Like so many I have grieved over the loss of many family and friends. The Covid-19 pandemic has changed all of our lives and habits.
I will be writing at least twice a week, sometimes more, it will depend on inspirations and of course my thoughts. I still have many memories to share. so until Facebook and Twitter and other media decide to stop being bias and trying to take away certain people or platforms from expression of speech I am leaving FB. I left Twitter many years ago. I will not belong to any group, organization, or part of anyone trying to take away our freedom of speech, or right to bear arms.
Please feel free to comment at any time~ your thoughts, your opinion is as important to me as my own. I believe we all can agree to disagree but in a respect way.
