Random Thought for April 20, 2012

Wings & Flight
 

Today I walked outside and I felt what has become a very familiar and welcomed feeling. I felt my wings spread open, ready for flight.

The spring sun on my face and my flight instructor (my wonderful husband) walking beside me.   A kiss good-bye from him, the radio turned up, appropriately playing ‘Fly with Me’ and I took off for my day, with a smile.

It wasn’t that long ago that being able to fly was foreign to me. I did not realize I had wings, let alone understand that they were only broken.  Over the last few years they have most definitely grown and healed.  What was broken grows back stronger.  So today I fly.  No longer the blackbird with a broken wing, no longer the songbird afraid to sing. Today I enjoy my life;  Wings open wide.

What makes you fly?

  1. Life, my love, is a molting process. We must shed the old to bring in the new. Every day is a new beginning, every moment, a blessing.
