Reaching Goals

I count my blessings on a daily basis, too many to count in "one sitting." By that I mean we have a full plate of blessings and only a small serving of worries! Open your eyes and you don't have to look very hard to see others struggling with health problems, financial difficulties or relationship issues. Since December, a hometown friend has been in the hospital after a fall on ice turned his world upside down. Many, many days of not knowing if he was going to make it. Many prayers sent up, no one gave up. He just made progress by putting one foot in front of the other. One day one step backwards, the next day two steps forward. He came home last week after almost 100 days! He still has a lot of rehabilitation ahead of him. Hard work coming back after life knocks you down and out.

It's all about balance in life. If we have too few aims and ambitions, we end up just drifting through life, doing whatever seems easiest. But if we have too many goals and aspirations, we get discouraged. It's human nature to feel as if we aren't making progress fast enough. Sometimes what seems to be that unattainable goal, you've already found!


  1. And this attitude makes one positive about life. If you can't see your own blessings - look at what others are going thru and be thankful for what you don't have!

    Good morning.

  2. More great thoughts - where did you learn all of this stuff?? Have a super day!

  3. Good Morning! I agree with you...sometimes we reach for goals that we think are impossible and yet we've already found them and just don't know it. I'm sorry to hear what happened to your friend...I hope he is getting better each day. Things like that makes us so thankful for what we have. I hope you have a wonderful day. Best wishes....Maura

  4. ~inspiring one are you...these words written are ever so true...balance...something we all need to maintain...warm wishing and brightest blessings~

  5. How true and I wouldn't trade my life for anyone's...come say hi :D

  6. Having lived in Maine 11 years I understand how dangerous ice can be. I have always had a fear of slipping on it.
    I hope your friend makes a full recovery. May God bless him.
