As the day comes to its end, I feel a sense of gratefulness. Was it a perfect day? No, but it was great and one might say; blessings in disguise. See, I made it through another one, I survived and I am okay. I have everything I need for the comforts of living; heat, food, coffee, and my pets. My eldest beutiful daughter not too far away and even a couple of friends.
It seems from the outside such a pitiful existence, but it is mine. I cherish it, and I embrace every aspect of it. I climb into my solitude, and I ponder on the mysteries of life. Somewhere in the darkness, I always do find the light.
It has been a dark road, pretty much all my life. I often wonder if for that I am lucky. As so it would seem, it has given me a soft heart, an open mind, gratitude for all life, and the simplest of things. It has opened my awareness to the concept of living each day as though it were the last. It has shown me the road of blessings in disguise.
Every moment is but a moment of time stolen, and without warning, it can and will be gone. Nothing is so sacred that it is off limits, nothing is so concrete that it cant be broken.
Color Is More Brilliant
The beauty in the tragedy is that; a weed is no longer a weed. It is a misplaced flower. A sunset is no longer the sun going down but it is Gods artistry on His canvas. A friend is no longer just someone who I call or spend time with, but they are the rarest treasure. Pets are not just pets but are souls that unconditionally offer you their lifelong companionship and love. Trees are gentle giants that dance in the wind as they gift us the fresh air. Meadows are fields of wildflowers buzzing with nectar loving life. Neighbors are no longer just neighbors but humans that are as fragile as any of us. A smile from a stranger is a hug.
Counting My Blessings
There are so very many things I could think upon that would surely bring me down, but if anything this hard life has taught me; its to keep my chin up off the ground. There is always someone less fortunate than me, no matter how bad it is, see. I am so grateful that I can be okay with where I am. I am so grateful to be able to see, the blessings in disguise.
