This is Peanut Butter Brickle. Life sure has plans of its own sometimes, doesn’t it? It doesn’t matter if you think you’re making plans and getting things accomplished and thinking of the future.
Life steps in and tells you it has a better idea.
I didn’t expect to have to see so many vet persons the last month. I didn’t expect to have a health problem and a lump monster in my mouth. I expected to already be on a boat right now headed to that Italy place.
But instead, I’m on a boat of trouble and worry. And the tides have changed. It’s trying to steer me to give up hope. It’s trying to discourage us from the dream we had.
It’s trying to make us get lost and forget that picture we had in our mind of a different way of life.
That’s right. Our rescue house in that Italy place is still there. It’s still waiting.
And the boat we will get on is now scheduled for August. We are not giving up.
We are not going to be discouraged from planning and hoping and painting the canvas of our dreams.
No one, not even sickness or life can take away a dream. No one can reach inside your thoughts unless you let them.
So although I don’t know what the next few months have in store, I look beyond the problems of now.
I’m still me, no matter what.
I can still imagine and dream and paint the canvas of how I wish for my future to be.
