~ Wednesday Gratitude ~
It's Wednesday already and time to link up with Heidiat Heart and Home to share our gratitude. Drop by her beautiful blog and join in as well as visit those that are sharing.
My intention is NOT to be a Debbie Downer with this post...please understand that. I just feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude today for "LIFE" and all that it entails. I'm sure that each of you can relate if you take a few moments out of your hectic schedules, quieten your thoughts and go within. I know &%^$ happens too ~ that's a part of the challenge and an opportunity to grow from that type experience. Not fun and I don't want to gloss over the yucky stuff but I also don't choose to focus on that. In my opinion, what we think about, we bring about. A friend's mom passed away early this morning at the age of 94 after a life well lived. Another friend is in the hospital with a severe infection in one knee after having double knee replacements 2 weeks ago. Another had an unfortunate car accident, another's car went on the blink and on & on. All a part of the yuck. On the other hand, we are given an opportunity each day to make the best of that one day ~ to laugh, play, perform an act of kindness, dream, read, nap, swim, hike, cook, bake, sew, paint, decorate, bead, run, take photos, plan a celebration, whatever floats your boat! Take the time to do something fun! Forget vacuuming and play with your kids. Get off the computer and talk to your hubby or teens. Call someone and laugh...tell them you love them...go to coffee or shopping...BE with a child, a parent, a loved one. Celebrate your life ~ it's the only one we get and it is NOT a dress rehearsal. ;-)
And...............................I hope you dance!
