Wings of Freedom

wing-2268

 

I think I’ve taken my freedom for grated.  I think we all do that at some point in our lifetime.  On the grander scale, such as our nation freedom I cherish everyday and try to remind myself to give thanks for it, but it’s the smaller freedoms I tend to forget and don’t hold as closely to my heart.  I guess that saying “you don’t know what you have until its gone…” this could mean many things to many people, but for me I didn’t realize how much I depended on something in my everyday life and how much freedom it gave me.  It’s never nice to feel stuck and dependent on others to help me, but I am thankful for my family and friends who love me unconditionally and still stick by me when I am and have been a total brainless twit.  I can only hope that my wings will spread themselves again and I can regain the freedom I so desire and will never take for granted.  And for those who are helping me through my time of struggles and many repeated act of blindness, thank you, your love and kindness are something I don’t take for granted and hope I can repay ten-fold.  My wings may have been clipped, but I know that with time and perseverance they will return and I will soar again.

Faith.  I sometime feel like I lose myself and my faith, but I know that there is a bigger power than myself.  I always have faith, there are just somedays I have to look harder for it.  Today I felt lost.  I felt overwhelmed, confused, and completely out of faith.  In one moment, one glimmer of my faith showed itself and reminded me that I am never alone.  I might still feel out of sorts and exhausted, but I am being carried through my rough times and reminded to never give up on my hope and faith.  Today I have Faith and I am grateful for that one glimmer that made me turn to look once again.

Today I’m just thankful for the 5 minutes of rest I had at the end of the day.  4 days of stress and that 5 minutes was the most important thing of my day and that I am very thankful of.

This is a dual post as I was sick and wasn’t able to lift a finger to type.  I’m grateful for my health and being able to get meds, see a doc, or simply rest in my bed to feel better.  I’m also thankful and amazed at the body and what it can withstand and endure over a course of time.  My dad is living proof and I’m thankful for our medical practices with which we us.

Happy Birthday Grandma F.  I sure do miss ya and I am thankful for all the time I did have with you when you were here with us.  I could always ask for more time but I think the lesson was to spend as much time with the people you love so that when its there time for them to go you don’t have any regrets.  So…thank you for always being there for me and showing me your love.

Today I’m grateful for a job.  A job that has great flexibility with taking time off because today I was able to stay home to get things ready for the Thanksgiving break.  Thankful and grateful.

Today I’m grateful for my moment of grace.  It didn’t feel like it at the time, but I was able to pull myself up by the bootstraps and walk back with my head held high and no one was the wiser for my little fall from grace.

Today is simple.  Today I’m grateful for senses.  They are more keen and guiding me more accurately than ever before.  Thank you…

Last night I found myself driving in the thickest fog I’ve ever seen.  It was very late in the evening or more less very early this morning – 1amish and even coming through an area I was knew was completely blanketed with fog and unrecognizable to me.  I’ve driven this area several times and I was amazed that there were no other cars on the highway, which as was out of sort to this route.  About 10 minutes into my hour in a half drive a trucker came onto the freeway via an on ramp and I got behind him and never lost sight of his back trailer.  It was pretty scary and all I have to say is last night he was my guarding angel through the blacken and foggy night.  So today I’m grateful for this angel driver who let me tail him all the way home and never tried to shake me so I would arrive safe and sound.  I don’t know who you were,  but I hope you arrived safely to your own home this morning.

A day of rest.  Today I’m grateful for a day of rest.  No work, no appointments, just a day to sleep, catch-up with friends, or what ever I want.
