Blessed

Filed under: Journal writing — freethepen @ 2:36 pm

Fields At The Rainbows End Texas is under siege by the weather. Thousands are homeless with nothing more than bare feet and the pants on their butts. Please take this time to write out each and every blessing. I suggest you start out like this. I’m blessed for waking up in my own bed. I’m blessed I can walk to my bathroom to pee. I’m blessed I can go into my refrigerator and remove food for breakfast. When you are pushed out of your home, every moment of every hour has changed. You have no where to go. You have only survival on your mind. I know this personally. Since 2001 I have lost 3 homes and 4 households. Rebuilding a life takes years, decades. I know. I am still rebuilding. Please give thanks. Know how blessed you are. Disasters don’t come with a new life already mapped out. You have to create it from tears, sweat, pleading, praying, great faith, much hope, and the ability to move on to each new second with fortitude.

Keep the pen moving,

Jan
