Dreams coming true

Here's a post I totally forgot about:

"I have a vision of a large aviary, garage sized, full of doves. It's a dove rescue aviary. I know people who have let their pet doves go free, and they are found in trees just sitting there for days. Eventually the hawks get them because they do not fly very well. They need a safe haven and to know that they are beautiful symbols of peace. The world needs to remember peace."

It looks like my vision is coming true! Karla told me about a HUGE outdoor aviary beside her house. She only has one dove at the moment, but she's getting two more rescue doves. And Angel will get to be in there as often as I let her. It makes me really excited about moving. Four doves! Who could ask for more?

I think Angel will adjust quite nicely to the move!

Meanwhile I am slowly packing a little each day. I've accumulated so much junk the last eight years, I will be hesitant to accumulate more after I move. I am having fun getting rid of everything I don't need. It makes me feel lighter. There's something to be said about the simple life.

I'll be making lots of videos once I move, especially of the aviary. Woo hoo! Can't wait!

As I read of your getting rid of things that have accumulated over the years it struck me how much that is like it is with our lives. We all have baggage from our past we carry with us. To let it go brings freedom. A simple life is a wonder after living...well you know. Sounds like the future is bright ahead. Don't get to worried about what might go wrong. Be happy about what WILL go right.

Yes, Bob... I finally understand the line "Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose." When did the word success mean having lots of stuff? I find success in things like making a child laugh or teaching Angel a new trick. Of course the bills must be paid, but success has nothing to do with money. They are entirely different things! I'm sure there are others who feel the same way. I see them all the time on Wife Swap! LOL!

it took me fifty years to learn that. everyone has a different deffinition of freedom. Mine is not being a slave to anything but being able to control what I do, how I act. Doesn't always happen but I'm better at it than I was.
