Re: Passing of my Wife

LESSONS LEARNED -

I believe we never can really appreciate just how many good folks are part of our lives until life throws us for a high-side and so many of them step forward and stand ready. I had no understanding of how those around us can provide a moderating element into harsh circumstances by just knowing they are there and they care. Folks, this is another of those instances when words seem wholly inadequate for expressing thanks and gratitude. But, that's what we have to work with. Just please understand that you people filled a huge roll in my ability to persevere through this. There are still some dark nights but rays are piercing through the clouds and it's becoming less of an emotional roller-coaster, now.

I went out to the moto shop the other night for the first time in a while. Just sat there alone in the quiet admiring my three old beat-up machines. The '07 KLR, the 530 and the 300. After a time it occurred to me that what I was feeling then wasn't at all about the motorcycles but rather memories of all the many folks who've shared a trail or bushwacked the backwoods or helped me waste perfectly good gas, rings and rubber on pavement while piloting one of them through the years. Yep, another of those myriad feelings that we as motorcyclist share among us. Some things simply defy verbal expression and within certain groups - requires none. Y'all know what I'm saying. See you out on the trails.

It's good to hear from you RG. We've been praying for you nightly with the kids since you started this thread. I totally get where you are coming from with the feelings experienced while sitting in the shop looking at the bikes. I get that every time I head out to my garage, even if I am just going in there to find something that isn't bike related. There is just something special about sharing adventures with good friends. It also constantly drives home the reality that we have so little time to spend really getting to know our friends on deeper levels. My dream of heaven, beyond experiencing the indescribable reality of God in ways we can't even begin to imagine now, is that we will have an eternity to spend getting to know people on a truly intimate level which we can never hope to experience here. Of course, it would be cool if that still involved motorcycles somehow

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas
