Rob’s philosophy

From a discussion last weekend…my philosopher at large, aka my husband, Rob…

The goal of life is hope.

The pathway to the goal is love.

The gate that obstructs the path is pride.

The key to the gate is forgiveness.

      Thank you! I was the scribe, he put it into words. We’ve been doing a lot of soul searching in the last year, trying to reset our course. Amazing how complicated, and then how simple, life can be! ~ Sheila

    Your husband is definitely on track…so simple and says so much! ~mkg

      Yes, it is simple to think about in those terms. Gets sticky in real life! But that’s the challenge…take the gift of forgiveness and love into real life! Thanks! ~ Sheila

    Wow! Your hubby is “deep”…! That’s a wonderful philosophy!

      He was deep the morning we had that conversation! And yes, I agree, a great philosophy! We are trying to put it into practice, which is, of course, easier said than done! ~ Sheila

    I bet you two have great conversations. Maybe you should include his ‘philosophy’ as a section in your blog or have him guest post occassionally. He sounds pretty smart. Of course, he’s married to you – so that’s a given!

      Sometimes we have great conversations! Not always, of course, but now and then we have one that’s a keeper! As far as smart, yes, he is. He’s much more a thinker than I am. But he’s not a blogger, he spends his computer time trading futures. Thanks! ~ Sheila
