Recently, we had a cold snap in Colorado. We had a week where the temperature never rose above 10 degrees…and fell below 0 each night. I don’t crave the frigid temperatures, but there is nothing a person can do but wait out the cold spell.
It shows a person how little they have to say about such things. The temperature is not going to rise about X degrees for Y number of days and if you don’t like it, tough!
Everyone has some luck. Everyone has a gift (Jupiter). It’s so easy to take this stuff for granted.
I take it for granted that the cold spell will last a week, not a month, but really, how do I know that? I don’t think that. I have faith this is the case, what else could it be?
I have a lot of ideas. Every day I wake up with thoughts and ideas and things to write about. I have more ideas then I could ever manage to write down. This is just my life.
I take this for granted. I have faith my ideas will continue to flow and be there when I need them.
But what if they weren’t? What if I woke up one day and the lights were out? The light in my mind, I mean. What could I do about it?
What if the temperature in Colorado dropped below 10 degrees and stayed there for a month or two or three? What could I do about it?
This made me realize I lack gratitude. It’s a major good fortune to wake up every days with ideas, overflowing. I know I am not the source of them. The ideas come through me and turn into words that show up on this page.
It’s no small miracle, do you know where I came from?
Do you have a gift you take for granted?
