Loving to Celebrate..
Last night ,as I drove to celebrate my friend, a pop song came on the radio which brought me right back to one of the best days of my life. I realized on that day a few months back, I had turned the song up and embarrassed my son as I did a little shoulder dance at the exact same traffic light as I was sitting in now. What are the chances? The song blared, “This is going to be the best day of my life… my liii life” Tears lept to my eyes and I blinked them back for the sake of fresh mascara and whispered, “You are soo soo good to me.”
Freedom is so good
and I did nothing to get it.
I remember feeling freer than I had ever felt in my entire life.
No fear. No anxiety. No crippling inner turmoil. No wrestling to outwit myself just to appear normal for a few hours.
I had felt cageless. But more than that I had soared.
I realized last night that freedom was not just for then…. but He had given it to me for keeps.
It was a beautiful event.
We laughed and we celebrated this woman who overcame it all. We listened to her dreams and hopes for this new year. Everything that has ever been put in her way she has climbed over.
I love her.
This morning she sent me this picture from last night… and it perfectly captures what I feel. In my life’s highlight reel…. this one gets a full page.
Freedom and Healing looks good on us…. and there is so much to be had!
