Angels Watching Over Me
This is a shelf in my sewing room. I have several little shelves devoted to things I care about, that are gifts to me, or represent people who have been gifts in my life. When I am busy sewing, I look at these gifts and feel a deep inner gratitude for all that I have, for all that I have experienced, and for all those who have been part of my heart's journey. Some of that journey has been challenging beyond belief. I have learned from experiences with chronic pain as well as from amazing healing journeys. I have learned from lovings and from losings, and from having been given gifts as well as obstacles to further my growth along the way. All of these experiences make up the percieved reality of what I know as my life. Along the way, I have learned a multitude of new lessons or the re-learning or re-experiencing of old ones. I am humbled by the depths of these challenges and even more by the depths of the human spirit to overcome them.
However, all that having been said...today I am simply and irrevocably grateful to have my blogger capabilities back again...after days with no editing or publishing buttons! I have learned just how obsessive compulsive I can be when trying to 'fix' things, that are certainly 'unfixable' by 'me' in the first place. In this case, a computer blogger program battling my server properties, and/or that blogger program having some inherent flaws it needed someone to practicing getting better on!
In any case, I would like to personally thank all of the blogger angels who watched over me as I was enslaved by a hot key pad, and an exhausted mouse. I am grateful to still be relatively sane as opposed to the decided lack of that capability that I might more likely be deserving of at this point. My thanks to the Blogger Buzzers who, I am sure, have worked day and night to help those of us cranky bloggers who blasted them with emails and pleas for help! My name is Heart's Journey and I am an obsessive compulsive blogger.
