Life is Good

I have so much on my mind right now, and, like grains of sand slipping through my fingers, I can already feel the beauty of this day slipping right out of my hands. It is just too lovely of a day, of a life, to let it go to waste. My goal for today is to try to keep my focus on the present moment as often as I can remember to do so--not on my fears, not on my to-do/can't-do list--not on anything but this very moment.

Right now, there is a gentle breeze blowing in the window---the OPEN window! It is 70 degrees outside and sunny. I have on shorts and a t-shirt and I am comfortable (no Lyme chills/Lyme sweats!). I'm savoring a kombucha, which one of my dear friends brought specially for me in a care package. Birds are singing outside of my window. Wind chimes off in the distance are jangling/singing/dancing happily. The smell of flowers is wafting into my room.

Yes, life is hard; life is painful. But life is good and it is beautiful. How easy it is to miss it!


  1. Alyson~ Boy I needed to hear this today. I have been so stressed by the acid reflux continuing and now the welt type rash on my inner upper thighs that is some how Lyme related. I need to remember to enjoy the moments I have ~ focusing on the good not the bad...the positive, not the negative...You really bless me with your posts, Alyson. Praying for better days ahead for you.

  2. Thanks, Renee. Following my own advice today has been a challenge. I'm trying though!
