It is nice to receive gifts unexpectedly.Today I received the gift of energy. I woke up and did not have my usual feeling of exhaustion and sleepiness. It was GREAT! I’m so excited! I did some housework for a change and did not get worn out. WOW! I had forgotten what NORMAL energy levels feel like.
I finished the last book in The Chronicles of Narnia last night. What a lovely experience. In The Last Battle the Unicorn said the following about the beautiful “new” Narnia: “I have come home at last! This is my real country! I belong here. This is the land I have been looking for all my life, though I never knew it till now. The reason why we loved the old Narnia is that it sometimes looked a little like this.” I love this quote because it reminds me that the longing I sometimes feel for a “better” life is natural and will some day come true. And today when I felt my normal energy levels return, I had forgotten what it was like to be alive and energetic. It is a wonderful reminder of how great life is, and simple things make a difference.
