MONDAY MUSINGS: Distant Daydreaming

I was pondering the question yesterday of why we all must go thru what we must go thru.  I was staring off into the distance wishing for a moment of freedom from the increased pain I have been feeling for the last two weeks. And then I flicked myself in the head and said "snap out of it girl"! Because knowing my luck, if I wish to hard, the fates will grant me my wish by assisting me in kicking the bucket... And then I would be standing at the Pearly Gates going "what the heck just happened?" and St. Peter would say "well kiddo, you wished to be pain free, and this is the best we could do!"  And then he would look at his manifesto and say "Oh good grief, sorry kid, but apparently, you don't belong up here, so just take the elevator to your left, and press the button called basement and enjoy the ride down, and by the way, you're pain free moment just ended as we have no guarantees what they'll do down there... sorry about that but have a great day".

Yup, that is pretty much how it would go...

So I think I will stay put for the time being, and in the meantime, I think I will just enjoy the view from my window. Increased pain or not, I certainly won't let it take those beautiful moments away from me.  And ironically, I suppose I should be thankful to the fates for my pain because it slows me down enough to allow me to be in the here and now and view these amazing, memorable moments.  And what a lovely reminder to me on how fortunate I am that every day I am surrounded in this unbelievable and unforgettable beauty, and for that, I am grateful.

And this.... is what I saw thru my window, what did you see thru yours?

Until Next Time.

  1. Fantastic! Reminds me of the sunrises and sunsets when I was growing up in Nevada. They were gorgeous, just like yours. Nashville has more subdued ones, but once in a while we get a good rosy glow over everything which makes it all magical.

  2. I am so sorry your pain level has increased. Is there nothing to be done for it?
    I didn't get much of a chance to spend time outdoors, but it was a beautiful crisp day. Oh no, did I say crisp with a full week of Summer left?
    As always, I adore your posts!

  3. Things mostly happen for the best. I wish you increased abundance, endless happiness, and pure love. Love the sunset photo. Be awe-full always!


I love hearing from ya! Thanks for stopping by!
