As I drove down the hi-way yesterday, I recalled the many day trips our father drove us on and how much I loved them! To this day, I love to drive on clear sunny days down to the old Missouri homesteads my father shared with us and all the delightful funny and sad stories he shared of our ancestors along the way. I wrote my father’s life story, check it out here: theankleexpress.com
I recall driving down hi-way 66 when I was ten or eleven, just minding my business and then this thought came to me. Dad, I exclaimed! Just think of all the people driving back and forth in their cars too. You’re telling us stories and Dwayne (my brother) too. But what about the cars where people are yelling at each other and some are sad because they’re driving to a funeral. Dad, there’s so many stories out there!
He could hardly believe his little Bixby (his nickname for me) came up with this thought at this early age, but he delighted in the thought.
Now, as I drive down a lane or the hi-way I call it the dance of the hi-way. People driving to and fro. Some scurrying at a frantic pace changing lanes way too often. Trying, it seems, to get to their destination more quickly than usual. Or the car that’s driven by a person young or old that seems not to have a care in the world, driving at a snails pace. What’s on their mind today? Are they happy? Are they sad?
I’ll never know, but I do know how I feel. Generally, I’m on the top of the world!
Oh, sure I have my down times too. Of late, I’ve had more than I care to innumerate! Persons I didn’t think to ask for help, have helped. I rarely ask for help because something/someone always comes to the fore to aide my angst. It’s just amazing when I, of course, note the issue and maybe I fret a bit, but deep inside I know all will turn out well. All I’ve worried about in the past, is just that, in the past and I’ve moved on!
On average though, I drive peacefully thanking the great powers that BE for gifting me my precious father Victor, my siblings and most importantly, my four babies!
Yes, like most I’ve worked, thought about what to do and worked more to raise my babies the best I could and always with a smile of contentment at the end of the day. Well, almost every day. Bumps in ones journey magically appear and with the right thought processing, they disappear as quickly as they came.
I keep in mind this thought….This too shall pass….and quess what, they always do! One way or the other.
We rarely know the `how’ something will help us, but the mighty Universal energies do! Don’t push against the hard times, just let it be and see what unfolds!
So when you’re dancing the dance on the hi-way, bring peace and calm with you and see just how awesome your ride will become with that train of thought.
Peace is all around us, if first we know and feel it!
Hold the vibration of calm and all else finds it’s place and falls in sync.
Have a lovely day!
