Did anyone else start singing or humming the song, "On the Road Again" by Willie Nelson? I know I did. It was unintentional yet fun, so glad it happened.
Over the past couple weeks a fog has lifted from my mind and heart. I'm able to see the light and good surrounding me. Don't get me wrong, I think I've stayed pretty positive and upbeat yet there are days when it's difficult to put my feet on the floor and get out, and active. After my sister's kidnapping, I chose to hide, so at least I didn't do that after my Mom passed away. Instead, I've kept my eyes and heart focused on God and taken it one day at a time. This is the best anyone can do, especially after the loss of a parent, right?
I anticipated feeling quite down at this time in August because of the anniversary of my Mom's cancer diagnosis, and the approaching departure of our daughter to her next adventure. BUT, I am feeling better than I've felt in a year, now will I have the same Polly Anna and cheerful attitude in a couple weeks? I hope so, but I won't make a promise I'm not sure I can keep.
This I do know, I'm feeling better because of The One, God, who continues to lead, help, encourage, inspire, and motivate me to be the person He designed me to be. God uses my family and friends, you, and those I haven't even met. You are his messengers, angels, and servants...thank you for the blessing you are to me. May His light shine through me, and you, as we get on the road again.
"My heart is bursting with a new song;
What is your heart bursting with today? Are you ready and willing?
