The Pendulum of Life.

Hello my dear Friends. Welcome to the TPC Blog.

Life is strange sometimes. As bad as it gets is how good as it gets. That pendulum of life can go so far into chaos and then brings us back into the feeling of love and appreciation and gratefulness.  My sister and her husband just experienced this along with our family.

They love to travel and are always all about but on this holiday they had a life altering experience. They went into a bank and when they came out while standing there a car pulled up and they were surrounded by three men. One went to take my sister’s purse and told her husband to empty his pockets. My sister being quite feisty started screaming for someone to come, her husband tried to talk to them. This provoked them to pull out a gun and put it against her husband’s chest. My sister being travel savvy didn’t have her passport or anything major in her purse but they got her camera and all her credit cards. Lots of cash but it was a small price to pay for them to leave them alone untouched. She said it was like in slow motion.

I asked her what did they take and she said “a bit of my soul”. She will never travel again outside Canada and US.

The other side of the pendulum came after. Everyone helped them and were there in an instant. They wanted to come home immediately and as they cancelled their credit cards this young man who they didn’t even know put their home flight on his credit card. All the people in the hotel asked them to stay and enjoy their holiday and they finally agreed and this young man again cancelled with his credit card and when there was a cancellation fee he talked to the placed they booked the flight with and got it taken away. She said every one’s hearts and kindness came out and gave her a glimpse of the other side of life.

When my brother told me what happened I kind of freaked. I couldn’t imagine life without my sister or my brother-in-law. They are two of the most kindest people around. Of course my love for them goes deep and if they passed a piece of me would go with them. Not having children of their own they have become aunt and uncle extraordinaire to my children and they are those kind of people that make you relax in life because you know they will always have your back. No matter what happens they aren’t about to judge but just be there to talk it through and help you through.

I’m not sure what the universe had planned with this one. Maybe it was to appreciate every minute for them and for us and be grateful. I know in all this my prayers have been beefed up for those people I love.

    Hi Sharon:

    Thanks you helped me understand some of it too.
    But that’s what you do isn’t it. It brought a tear to JoeÔÇÖs eyes.

    The fellow who helped me, Joshua was definitely sent to me.
    And maybe I will be of help to him somehow.
    He has a company Kids Into Action Inc. and distributes children exercise programs to schools to keep our children fit. How important is that. He is also a father himself.

    I also checked one of the meanings of Joshua and this is what I got about a movie in 2002.
    In this gentle fable about the Second Coming, a carpenter named Joshua (Tony Goldwyn) brings joy and light to every person he meets when he arrives in a small town. Rodney Bay??
