An Attitude of Graditude

When we were young,

we never thought we would ever be 18, moving into our first place, and having REALITY set in so quickly. We were used to having everything done for us. Yes, we shared some of the household chores, but we were not prepared for life on our own. Remember the first time you ran out of tooth paste, or toilet paper? Our parents got a kick out of us coming home for meals. Kids of today are smart, they just don’t want to leave the nest. 

I think everyone longs for the good old days. A time where life was simple. No cell phone distractions, no internet connections, no x-boxes, video games, or i-pads.Kids went out to play because inside was boring. You played hide and seek with the neighbors, went swimming, went for a bike ride. Parents sat on the front porch talking to the neighbors who enjoying an evening walk. Life seems to have gotten more hectic, so much to cram into one day. 

The past couple days have been pouring rain. I watched  some movies curled up in a blanket. It was nice for a change. I am busy working, writing, caring for my aging mother, and trying to keep my trees alive this year. Sometimes, it is nice to catch a breather. The fact is we always think there is TIME don’t we?  Life will stay the same. Some of us have had their life forever changed in a moment. We understand how hard tomorrow can be. standing on this side of the picture, we learned how to keep dancing in the rain, we don’t wait for the storm to pass. We know life is not perfect, we keep moving forward. The pain does not ever go away, as you heal, you start to remember the good moments in time. Our philosophy is when life handed us lemons, we made lemonade. Life is good indeed! Thank You Lord for the courage to looking up, for the comfort you give each day and for the wisdom to know how to let go.
