okay, so for a little bit there, i gotta tell ya, i lost track of the gift of it all. i was feeling pretty grumbly and frustrated. but i had started to figure out that my frustration was adding as much as the fear to the world, and i needed to get a grip. and i feel that i was. but if that feeling needed cementing, two different morning walks did just that for me.
the first walk was a message from the rain. i posted about it on my terri st.cloud facebook page (feel free to come hang out with me there!) and so thought i'd cut and paste that post here -
ahhh this! THIS! -
opened my door to head out for a walk this morning. it was raining. i seriously considered turning back in. 'omgosh terri! how old have you gotten?!' i asked myself in alarm and pushed myself out the door. it didn't take long for the rain to stop. it took a whole lot longer for my brain to clear. but it finally cleared. and i began to listen. and as i got deeper into the listening, the rain started up again. gentle rain. that felt really soothing. and that's when the rain spoke - 'it's not an inconvenience, it's a gift.' .......... IT'S NOT AN INCONVENIENCE, IT'S A GIFT.
wow. i teared up. so me and the sky, we poured out some soothing water together as i found my way back home. and that message? well, slip it in to whatever you like - i have a feeling it fits a lotta places. good morning!
and the second walk, i blogged about. if you're curious, you can find that here.
i now fully remember that it is not only up to us to create the music of our lives - it is one heck of a gift to be able to! and now, more than ever, we got some music that needs to be made! let's make some rockin' good stuff!
