Does it Matter Where this Gift Comes From?


As I sat here, reading blog comments and listening to Gladys Knight, ("cos when I'm feeling low, I don't want to have to go, out looking, for a part time kind of love, " ) I came upon a great blog by PassionCork, and I am sure she won't mind me elaborating on the comment I left for her there.

'Cos you know, I like to think of myself as a "glass half full" kind of guy. Yes, I get down sometimes, but not usually for long. And yes, sometimes I may forget to look, but usually I like to try to see beauty even in unexpected places. There is wonder all around if you look for it, even on a bad day. Like behind the derelict shed round the back of the pub in the Market Place, in the broken pieces of tin roof and the scrub grass growing in the cracks in the torn up tarmac.

And one thing Passion wrote made me think. She mentioned that life is a gift. It's an expression we have all heard of course - the gift of life. Some people have theories about how life started. Me, I can see merit in quite a few of the usual ideas, but I really don't think I, or in fact anyone else actually knows for sure. But wherever life came from - whether you are a follower of science, religion, hearsay, tradition or a mixture of all of them - life really is a gift. OMG what a gift.

I have another gift which someone I love gave to me once for my birthday. This is something both beautiful and practical which I use most weeks. And every time I use it I think of that person and of the thought and love which went into choosing and buying it for me, and I love owning it and using it so very much more because of that. I suppose maybe I have always known that life was like that too, but this morning Passion reminded me of that fact in a very vivid way.

I may not know how I came by life, but I want to try more often to remember to treat it as a gift.

("And when the dreams and rainbows start to disappear, I don't want someone up and running out of here." )

Such a positive post to start my day!

I understand about the practical gifts that get used that remind us of the one that gave it to us. I had a guest stay with me for a bit this summer that fixed a sliding glass door in my house that I've always hated because it was so cumbersome to open. I would avoid it and use a different way to get into my yard.

Now I love that door, use it every day, and think of him and how sweet it was of him to have fixed it.

Happy Friday Dreamer. I hope you have a good weekend.

Swim...Bike...Done

Thanks Kay, love the story about the sliding door! Hope you have a good weekend too.

    There must be something in the air as my day definitely started out in the same way, that deep breath and appreciating everything that surrounds me, the things, but especially, the people. The word "blessed" is one I am not always comfortable using, but it is apropos on a day like this.... just BLESSED with whatever cosmic force is responsible for bestowing upon me this bounty of gifts. I would honestly pinch myself but fear that I will actually wake up. This is dream I never, EVER want to wake from!!!!

    Love,
    -E'

It is one good thing to have a happy life, and quite another to recognise it for what it is! I think your ability to appreciate what you have increases the amount by which you enjoy it.

Of course it is also important to cultivate the ability to resist that fearful inner voice which says "this is too good to last, I must cling on for fear of losing it" which can actually be quite counter productive.

    Happy Birthday Dreamer.

    I think it one of the most delicate pleasures of life, when we have those memories of moments that seem to hug us no matter what has come to pass since we were given them.

    Such a beautiful post Dreamer, I don't know from where we all came, but, this life is too precious to not cherish.
Thanks for the birthday wishes and the inspiration Passion
