My New Victory

It is my Birthday today, I had planned to go riding on my new motorcycle all day as is my tradition.  But, that’s not the way it turned out.  I woke up this morning at 2:00 AM.  I am not sure why, but I did, and I could not for the life of me go back to sleep.  After three hours of not sleeping, I decided to get up and start my day.  I followed my normal routine of eating, exercise, bathing, and getting set for my day.  The only problem was, I was groggy, tired, just plain shot.

I had purchased a new Victory the day before, and because the process was so drawn out, I returned too late, and too tired to clean and prepare for the next day.  So, new plan, clean now, ride later.  It didn’t happen, I was just too tired.  The best I could manage was lunch with a dear friend.  After a late afternoon nap, I did manage to wash my new prize, and hopefully detailing will follow tomorrow.

If there is anything that could be called a sin, I have committed it today.  Hopefully, this post will correct my error, my sin.  What was my sin?  This entire day, I have yet to express my gratitude for all the wonderful things I have in my life.  You would think that I would be thrilled at the fact I have a beautiful new bike, no, I am complaining about how I am too tired to wash it.  I have had friends wishing me well from five different counties, Face Book wall posts, private messages, voice mails, phone calls.  But, did I stop and take a moment to feel grateful for their friendship, and love?  No, I didn’t, apparently I’m an ass.

In the past year, my friends have been there for me, supported me when my Mom passed, kept me going, and even assisted in my new enterprises.  Then there are the new friends I have made lately, wonderful, everyone.  One in particular, has had such a profound effect, I am amazed at my luck to have met her, and have her in my life.

So now I must attempt to correct my error, my sin.  Thank you for all the wonderful things I have in my life, my friends, family, every good thing that has ever come my way. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
