Yep, it happened to me.
I dumped my kayak in the lake and my dry body with it. Luckily I had four angels present to help me out when I did (and probably many more, unseen by human eyes).
Today, I’m thankful that:
The water was warm!
The night was gorgeous!
I had those others there to rescue me!
My sister-in-law loves me, no matter how clumsy I am.
I got to see a blue Heron perching in the top of a pine tree and calling out to nature. What an experience, I didn’t know they did that.
I’m also thankful that…
I didn’t drown.
I faced one of my lingering kayaking fears in a safe environment.
I witnessed God working through the patience and humor of others.
I was able to laugh at myself, and I know now that I don’t want an open kayak when I buy my own. Yes, I will be buying one soon.
Last night I was reminded what it means to trust God with my life.
I know my hubby loves me. He expressed his anxiety afterward, at looking across the lake seeing my boat was upside down and me nowhere to be found.
I had an experience I never would have had, had I not taken a chance and lived in the moment.
It was GREAT! I’m ready to go again!!!! 😀
In other news:
My weight is stable.
I keep dealing with the same three pounds.
I need to tweak my food plan.
I’m having guests over this weekend.
Work is going well.
I’m thinking about joining a Tai Ji group.
I never did bike ride this summer.
I’m less than enthusiastic about fall’s early arrival.
Hubs and I are planning a trip to NH and CT in September, if not before.
Life is good! God is great. Change is possible!!
I keep telling myself: Keep showing up every day. Keep doing your research. Keep trusting in yourself. It WILL pay off in the end.
Kayak as much as possible.
Share my life with positive people.
Be grateful for my many blessings.
Work on a revised food plan.
