Midge’s Mumblings on Awakened Hearts
I returned from Kansas on Friday…. the longest day of my year. It started at 11:30pm. I had only been in bed since 9:30pm; but the hotel we stayed in didn’t feel right; multiple things had happened to let us know that we would never stay there again. When traveling with three fur babies you sometimes have to buck up because there are limited options. The final straw was when our hotel room opened up while I was coming out of the shower! The manager had neglected to log our room into the computer so the night staff gave a 3a.m. arrival our room! They opened our door with the key they were given…. thankfully we had changed the door so they couldn’t get all the way in or let our fur babies out!
We packed up early and left by 4 a.m. It had snowed the day before and it was icy and very cold.
The pic shows what happens when a semi passed us and all the salt and snow flew up on the road in front of us. In a second, I couldn’t see anything. Sweetie Peetie snagged the photo…. my heart had stopped but I knew better than to brake. It didn’t take long for it to clear and all was well.
Sometimes all is not well; and life can literally change in a second. What happens next is sometimes within our control and sometimes it isn’t. What is in my control is to start each day with my intentions for the road ahead; to be mindful, to be loving, to be kind, to be authentic, to be compassionate. Whatever happens next…I may be scared, I may be hurt; however, I will show up with my heart open and ready. That is all I really have control over is showing up authentically and living each moment fully.
