July 20 Dreams
I remember the first time I uttered the words “I want to be an astronaut“. My Grandfather took his eyes off the fishing lure, cracked his half smile grin and although I thought knew what he must be thinking, he replied “If there’s one I thing I know, it’s that you can be anything you want to be; you just have to work hard. Now hand me those pliers.”
Dreams propel us past our real and perceived limitations. Don’t forget to dream.
Today I am thankful for the stuff of dreams:
- waking from a dream at 3AM with an answer I’ve needed.
- for my Grandfather’s gentle but firm hand on my shoulder, even now.
- for those that inspire HOPE at a time when I feel helpless.
For what are you thankful?
