Musings From A Musical Mind

Lucky One

There are a few moments in this lifetime where everything is good.  I mean – really good.

Everyone in your family is safe and happy – everyone is healthy.

Oh you still have some residual “stuff” from the past – and there are scars that just living life have produced – but all in all – you have much to be thankful for.

All of this can turn “on a dime” – and life can go sideways.  Things happen that you didn’t sign up for.  That call from the doctor – or a death in the family – affecting you or one of your close friends  – Something happens – there’s a problem with your child – or an aging parent – and in that moment everything changes  – and all of a sudden your peaceful “perfect” little world – stops.

But today is one of those few rare moments where everything is peaceful – and I feel lucky.  I am incredibly blessed – and don’t feel as if I somehow deserve it.  The past threatens to rear its ugly head and points its finger straight at me – and I falter beneath the heavy reproach – the feelings and emotions threaten to strangle me – if I let them.  But “there but for the grace of God – go I” resounds in my head – and I realize that God is merciful to me a sinner.  His grace is new every morning and I am incredibly happy and thankful for His wonderful blessing on my life.  Somehow I found favor and even the “dead and gone” has been given new life and has been restored to me.  And I feel loved. And all my questions don’t really matter anymore.  He has restored – He has brought back something that has depth and meaning to me.  He understood my heart and restored my faith once again in the miraculous and in friendship that can go through the fire and yet – still be there in the end.

And I never again will take for granted the “little things” in life.  There is so much to be thankful for – and I intend to live every one of them with a thankful heart and open arms – with much love and forgiveness that pours out of my life to others.

This song is dedicated to all of the special people in my life – who make me feel lucky and so blessed.

Thank you

God Bless

  1. Oh Cindy, you so deserve it. I wish you all your blessings with my whole heart.♥

  2. Hi Cindy. I too am at peace, although sometimes I feel like it’s just too good to be true. You know how it is, everything is going good and then kerplunk. I don’t want to think about that though, I want to be positive with positive thoughts and so I send to you positive thoughts. Take care and have a great rest of the day.

  3. I’m about as peaceful as it gets around here. I just posted on Facebook that it’s a lazy day today. I don’t have to go anywhere. I just have school, housework and to write several new books, record 9 audios for the Say What You Mean Convention and create some new packages. That’s all! lol
