I had a conversation with a friend the other day about the “golden hour”. You know, that seemingly blink of an eye when the light is as beautiful as it ever has been just before the great big sun gives way to the dark of the night?
And I was saying how badly I wished it lasted longer. It goes so fast that instead of focusing on it’s beauty, it makes me anxious because I know how fleeting it is.
But perspective is everything, isn’t it? After bitching and moaning I ended the conversation with the acknowledgement that it happens every day. Every day the sun rises and the sun sets. And that, my friends, is pretty spectacular.
And with that I felt greedy for wanting it to last longer.
Recovery is the same way. Every day, several of us live seemingly normal lives and because much of what we’re able to do is similar from one day to another, we forget how great it is to have the energy to get through a day or – dare I say – make it through a day without pain or discomfort.
I’ve spent many days of my recovery feeling sorry for myself yet, as a nurse, I care for people all the time that have chronic conditions; people who live with limitations and pain in their “normal” every day life.
A friend from work came over last night to pick up some bags filled with clothing and household things I put together for her to send to her family in the Phillippines. The typhoon has left her family homeless, without any clothes or belongings. Families have been torn apart, children have

On this Thanksgiving, I have a heavy heart and a clear perspective. I’m thankful for the setting and rising sun, the love and support I’ve received during my recovery, and both my family and the home that contains our love.

  • I love the light in these. I’m greedy with that golden hour..ha. It’s my favorite time of the day, especially in the morning and it feels like the city is just waking up. Love that feeling.

  • Ashley, we were on the same wave length today. I just posted a thankful message on my blog also. It’s so true how sometimes we get caught up in what is so insignificant and not really see the whole picture.

    Have a great Thanksgiving with your family tomorrow. xoxo

  • I always thought that if we had the “golden hour” last longer it wouldn’t be so golden anymore. As you say, perspective…
    I was bed ridden a year ago recovering from a bad injury. I remember having a mix of emotions, from depression to being grateful, frustrated to being content and so on. I had such a hard time with the fact i had to depend on my family and friends to take care of me, until I realized : wait, I’m sooo lucky to have my friends and family to take care of me. I can’t imagine what I would have done. Perspective.

    But there are days that it’s ok to be mad and/or frustrated as long as we remind ourselves that tomorrow is another day. Having the prospect of a tomorrow is a beautiful thing.

  • I want to thank you and your family for your generous relief donations to my family and friends who are currently suffering from tremendous loss from typhoon Haiyan. It’s overwhelming to even know where to start. Your donations will go a long way in places of Eastern Visayas. My family will personally share all those donated items I collected and many will be blessed through your generosity. Again, I can’t thank you enough. More blessings to you and your family.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
