From The Backside To The Front

Updated on January 25, 2018

What We Think About But Very Few Times Say

I believe nothing in life is by chance

There is a reason

We may think we have the answer

Only to find out

We were wrong

We may search and wonder

Even to this day

I am not sure why many things in my life have happened

What I do think for certain

It is up to me to find out

Since nobody other than me would have any reason to care

So as I investigate like a real Dick Tracy

Only to be more confused than when I started

I constantly look for clues

I am in search of life as I know it

I will leave no stone unturned

Once and awhile I get a break

Strange coincidences take place

When the unexpected happens

Here is one of those times in full detail

I was at home relaxing

My mind was blank

Not even a thought of what I planned to do next

I even ate breakfast late

My wife called to me two times

Breakfast is ready

I was getting dressed

I could of came out in my pajamas

Instead I insisted on making the bed

My wife was worried my food would be cold

I reassured her it was just fine

Thank you for breakfast

I wasn't even hungry and I should of been

That was unusual since it was almost ten o'clock in the morning

I didn't eat any supper last night

I had a late lunch

My wife went out for a haircut

I just turned on the laptop

The phone rang

It was a friend my wife works with

He has been out sick and was in the hospital

I picked up the phone thinking it might be important

I know he has my wife's cell number

They have talked before

So as we talked he said it was nice to hear from you

I said you must of butt dialed me

Because you called me

We laughed

He said that happens sometimes

I was glad we had this chance to talk

He is a very hard worker and doesn't like to miss one day of work

I know how he feels

I am the same way

After a small conversation

He had to go

I am glad he is feeling better

What a nice topic to consider

I will let you be the detective

Look for clues

Can you find the punch line?

One butt says to another

Lighten up

You look pooped

Really exhausted

Out of gas

You haven't been yourself lately

We have to talk

You hit rock bottom

Take a seat

It is as so you don't care what people think ?

Why are you down in the dumps ?

Life isn't that bad

Learn to turn the other cheek

If your having a bad day

Wipe clean the past and get moving

Nobody likes to be left behind

Then they both crack up

If you began your day with this hub

I guarantee it has to get better

      Gypsy Rose Lee Look around you and see all there is. The dark and the light. Both have their purpose. When it is dark and cold rest and relax. When it is nice and bright push with ideas and new energy. Sharing each others love and company. Give Sid a wonderful head rub for me. Charlotte loves her naps. I have to force myself to get up. While she looks at me and rolls over in complete comfort. Then out of the blue she got up. I think she felt bad for me. Thank you for reading and sharing.

      I feel like Mother Nature is playing a joke on me. Several days snow the rain takes it away. Two days snow now it's melting. The days are so dark they are almost not existent.

      Kari Poulsen I wonder how much we miss because we are too busy to see what is really right before our eyes. Enjoying the moment and then the next one right after that. Thank you so much for reading and seeing life through my eyes. Michael - Milec Every day is so beautiful but it can not always be touched and held. It can be cherished in mind and in thought. My dream is to be a Lover Of Life and the only way that can be done is to get my hands dirty and dive right into those mud pies and experience happiness. Thank you for sharing your comments and helping me to keep thinking. Have a joyous night.

      I have to agree with you. Nothing happens by pure chance. There is purpose, even when we can't see it.

      An extraordinary day, and you have concluded successfully . Perhaps that's why practical advice "if you started your day with this hub ..."

      It would seem to me that there was something wrong with this world. While a whole world is spinning around us that's around me I mean "our own " whole world.. Yeah. We ought to be perfect in our eyes as we do our best we can, that's enought for me. It's for sure "I guarantee it"...

      Shanmarie I work in a restaurant and I deal with young kids who have a very odd way of thinking. We have to empty the barrels in every area and sometimes the barrels are half full. I tell one of the kids to take one barrel and pour it in another to save the plastic bag. In the trash barrels are just plastic bags and paper. I think he understands. So he empties one bag into the other. I looked away and then I watched him take out the empty bag and throw it in the other bag. Changing both bags. Really. Please keep sharing and caring. The truth lies somewhere in the middle. Have a really good night.

      Your pondering take me down a train of thought pathway. You are a unique one, my friend. Makes me think it's not so bad when everyone else thinks I'm nuts for not following their thought process. LOL. Like at work the other day when someone asked if the party melts sandwiches come with a single patty. No, they don't. So one of the managers told me to tell the customer that the junior cones with the same amount of meat. What I was supposed to get from the mangers comment was that the junior size has the same amount of meat as a single patty full size would. But what my mind was thinking was that they both have two patties but the juniors have smaller sized patties so how is that the same size? The manager and the grill cook were like what are you not understanding? LOL. One little clarification to begin with would have stopped me from going down the wrong path.

      Bill Holland As I butt, butt along the wind howls and a cold chill is in the air. Thank you so much for reading and be the first to comment. I think you would make one great detective if you should ever go into that field.
