I would like to take a moment to honour the Fathers …
I am Awake, I am Alive (and Why That’s Important) …
I am awake, I am alive, and that my friend, is a great way to start!
I am awake to my world and what is going on around me without ever believing it is happening in me. I am awake and aware of the pain and the joy, the challenges and the blessings, the day and the night, the sun and the moon because I am alive.
I am alive. I am not bleeding. Death is not imminent. I may be tired but that can be fixed. I may be hungry but that can be fixed too. I can feel the seat under my tush, my finger on this keyboard, and the softness of my own skin. I can smell home and I love the taste of this coffee. I am alive and that means I am so not done yet.
So here I am Creator. I am awake. I am alive and I am ready to appreciate and receive all the clues you send today. I am ready to serve. I am ready to love. I am ready to listen. I am ready to work. I am ready to speak … in that order, for I know this is not for me.
Today as every day, I work to leave this world better than I found it. Today I work to create a world my grandchildren will love, a world I won’t even live in. I don’t know how or when that will be achieved but I know all I have to do today is keep going, doing what I can, one step at a time because great journeys happen one step, one mile, one act at a time.
Today my friend, make your journey great.
I love you! Hugssssssss
