April 10, 2010

Today I am Grateful for:

Getting On Track. Yesterday was one of those days where I just couldn't do anything the way I normally do it. Not that it was a bad day, I just wasn't able to do my normal routine. I even missed a blog. It was like I was living in an alternate universe. I'm Grateful to know that life is just fine even if it wasn't routine.

Drew's Musical Talent. My son had his recital at his school last night in a program called "Coffee House" put on by the high school students. I'm very proud of his natural music talent. It's funny to watch this funny little boy that knows music without effort. He does practice a lot, but it comes so naturally to him. I'm Grateful that we are able to help nurture the musician in him.

This Thing Called Life. Everyday is so different than the last. I never know day to day what the journey is like. It unfolds in the most surprising way. I've never had an uncharted life before and it's so interesting to try to live it carelessly. I know I will be provided for.

Attitude. I'm Grateful that I can see when I get negative and that I am willing to change it. I don't go there too often, but it happens. I still have a negative stream of conciseness that runs in my mind on a daily basis. But I know it's under my control and how much I want to live it and believe it that makes the difference today. I can let those thoughts pass through my head like birds, they can fly in and fly out. They don't have to nest.

  1. Nice photo of the little angel. I like what you wrote about life--I like being a little less responsible these days. I can find more spontaneity.
