Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me………..was lost……was blind, but now I see…….

I wish:   to maintain an awareness of my blessings…..the sweet and the salty, the smooth and the rough….those that understand me and those that perplex me still…..each and every twist and turn teaches me….teaches me what I wish for and what I push against; all worthwhile lessons.  When the day is done, I continue to strive for acceptance….this song, it’s one of my favorites.

I wish: I could tell you that perspective came easy for me—I was a slow learner in matters of the heart and still am at times; some things might always confuse me.  I forget.

I wish:  to savor the joys of my world….to instill in my family a sense of their worth, their importance and my acceptance of their individual natures….this is easier some days that others.  I forget.

I wish: for peace, patience and  for graceful responses to all of life’s presentations.

    this is a truly beautiful post! and it’s just what i needed to read as walk out in to this wet, cloudy world today. the beautiful things aren’t are only teachers…quite frankly, i learn a lot more from the “salty” i work through. it’s all blessings, even if they are sometimes wearing the costume of misfortune. thanks for reminding me of that.

    Whatever you are feeling is right and real and yours. I know that my biggest lessons have been found my darkest moments and my biggest teachers have been the people I aspire be most unlike:) Haven’t been here for too long. Love the song- named a kid after it:) Hugs Girlie
