23 Nisan

Bugün 23 Nisan, çocuklar gibi içim kıpır kıpır.  Kendimi sahile attım, martılar, kuşlar, kediler..  çimenlerin üzerinde hoplaya zıplaya oynayan çocuklar, uçurtmalar rengarenk gökyüzünde! Tam bir bayram havası....Hepsi birbirinden güzel. 

Ben ise önüme ne gelirse alıyorum, duraklardan biri de çiğ köfteci.  Tezgah başında genç bir adam, güleryüzlü tüm siparişleri yetiştirmeye çalışıyor. Benden önceki genç delikanlı ile sohbet ederken, sabahtan beri bırak yemek yemeyi, su içmeye bile vakti olmadığından bahsediyor ama alıştığımız şikayetçi asık suratlı bir tavır ile değil. İçimden işini seviyor herhalde dedim.   Bende bayram artık çiğ köfte ile kutlanıyor diye espiri yapıp, bu arkadaşın da bayramı,  biraz torpil geç bari dedim.  Genç dik durup gururla bizim bayramımız 19 Mayıs dedi, sonradan espiriyi yakalayıp sen yine de torpil yap diye gülerek ekledi. Tezgah başındaki ise onun gözlerinin içine bakıp, size asıl torpili Mustafa Kemal Atatürk yapmış diye bombayı patlattı.  Genç delikanlı evet haklısın derken ses tonu ciddi ama bir  o kadarda sıcak ve sevencendi.   

Bir an bugün paylaştığım Atatürk'ün sözleri aklıma geldi, bu gencin kendisinin ve Ata'sının ne kadar önemli ve değerli olduğunu bildiğine hiç şüphe yoktu.  "Memleketi asıl ışığa boğacak" olanlardan biri ile karşılaşmak benim de günümü aydınlattı.

Beautiful boy



Close your eyes
Have no fear
The monster's gone
He's on the run and your daddy's here 

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy 

Before you go to sleep
Say a little prayer
Every day in every way
It's getting better and better 

Out on the ocean sailing away
I can hardly wait
To see you come of age
But I guess we'll both just have to be patient
'Cause it's a long way to go
A hard row to hoe
Yes it's a long way to go
But in the meantime 

Before you cross the street
Take my hand
Life is what happens to you
While you're busy making other plans 

Before you go to sleep
Say a little prayer
Every day in every way
It's getting better and better 

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
Beautiful boy
Darling, darling, darling
Darling Sean

Reason, Season, or Lifetime



People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you figure out which one it is,
you will know what to do for each person.


When someone is in your life for a REASON,
it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.
They have come to assist you through a difficulty;
to provide you with guidance and support;
to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually.
They may seem like a godsend, and they are.
They are there for the reason you need them to be.


Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time,
this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away.
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.
What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done.
The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.


Some people come into your life for a SEASON,
because your turn has come to share, grow or learn.
They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.
Believe it. It is real. But only for a season.


LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons;
things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person,
and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.
It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.
