What Peace?

One path alone leads to a life of peace The path of virtue.

Juvenal
***************************
I have searched my soul. I didn't say or do an unkind thing. I didn't judge or criticize. I taught her some things. I gave her money. I gave her some winter gloves. I bought her flowers. I was getting ready to do a lot more. I admired, respected and believed in her. I gave her my purest affections. I loved her like a daughter. And now there's a nasty thorn stuck onto my blameless heart that won't dislodge. Where is my peace?

In my experience peace is always elsewhere. It's a journey.

Peace, to me, is living in the moment and knowing life doesn't last forever.

My Gran always said, "Peace it's wonderful!" and then would turn around and sing "I'll fly away oh glory,..."
I am going through the same puzzlement with a person I thought was a friend.... What did we do? Probably just made them angry by trying to show kindness-
