Good Things

When I look around at my life, the people in it, the things I do & feel, even my posessions...when I really STOP to take a look, I know it is full of GOOD GOOD things.  Why do we get so busy that we stop appreciating these good things.  I got 2 speeding tickets in the mail over the course of the last couple of weeks.  I wonder..."what was making me rush", "what was more important than me taking my time".  I guess the tickets were Gods way of reminding me to slow down.  For that, I am thankful.  Everyday I go rushing through my life.  Something always seems more important than sitting on the deck with my husband for a cup of coffee, watching a you tube video with my kids, or picking up the phone to listen to a friend.  I get wrapped up in this bubble which is only me & my own world.  It is lonely sometimes.  The problem with me is I don't know how to do moderation.  All or nothing.  So I shut down & close everyone out.  My reason right now is I am restoring... working on Brave Girls.  But what is my reason tomorrow or next week ...everyone has things they want to work on.  I want to stop, listen look, spend time, slow down & respect all of the blessings that my life.  My life is so full of good things.

I am closed for restoration...

"My heart is on soul is like a wheel that's burning..."  this song popped into my head.  I want to & am starting to feel this way right now where I am at.  I have alot of learning to do and a lot of things that just may need 'fixing' but there is never such a good time as now...right now to love me & respect me & get back to the me that I deserve to be.
