There is much to behold
From another window—
You see another soul
And then you see your own.

The Constant Things In Life

“What are some of the constant things in your life?”

In her revealingly insightful post, Constants In Change, S&S asked it. I believe it’s a great idea to ask yourself the question because it opens up your heart and give you additional keys to knowing and understanding yourself. I found it very helpful so I’m “reblogging” her idea. 🙂

Sometimes they would ask me some things about their cell phones, and I would happen to see some of their messages. I noticed they called each other “Sweetheart.” Like: “Sweetheart, what are you doing now? I’m eating your favorite corn here.” “Sweetheart, sorry for this late text. I went to Shopwise.”
