To educate yourself for the feeling of gratitude means to take nothing for granted, but to always seek out and value the kind that will stand behind the action. Nothing that is done for you is a matter of course. Everything originates in a will for the good, which is directed at you. Train yourself never to put off the word or action for the expression of gratitude. Albert Schweitzer

Day 305 - Change is in the Air
The Phoenix has risen from the ashes once more. Once more she has picked herself up. Something is different this time. This time there is something behind her eyes that I've never seen before. I can't tell you what it is, I have no clue. That "Something" changed my mind, made me say "Well OK then. Let's do this."
I have faith in her. This time she is going to fly higher than any of us. I can see it in her eyes.
Today I'm grateful for:
flight. Fly on my Redbird. I'll fly with you as far as I can. Then the rest is up to you.
God. Something amazing happened this weekend. On the way home Friday night I was tied up on knots and I prayed a simple prayer "Lord, please soften our hearts and help us be gentle with each other" We were.
Kelly. She knows why. That's enough for me.
lists, distractions, walks, hamsters, laptops, photos, and all the other little tools I use each and ever day to keep me thriving. That keep me grounded in this fabulous life I discovered I had. The shock and awe of what I've got has still not worn off. I pray it never does. My non-chemical mood stabilizers rock dude.
faith. I blew it this morning but I won't blow it tomorrow.
easy cancellations. I got to call up Mega Life and Health and tell them exactly what they could do with their faux insurance. To my surprise they said "You are paid up until the 5th. Expect a rebate in the mail in 7-10 days. Here is your cancellation number. Thank you and have a nice day." I'm left sitting there staring at the phone receiver waiting for her to come back on the line and say "SIKE! You go play with Blue cross, we'll keep taking your money OK? Now go play like a good girl." all I got was a dial tone. I'm still a little freaked.
new cousins. Whooohoooo! Congratulations Tara and Jim!
change. It's time. I walk but she flies. Perhaps she can give me lessons.
