I am always amazed that there are so many times in each day that a little tap on my shoulder would be very appreciated. I have my children on my mind more than I would like. Or should I say I worry about my children......"duh" I am a mother, you say. Much of my spiritual work is in allowing my family to travel their own path and for me to bless them and send them on their way. This is a lot easier said than done but I guess that's the LESSON.
Each of "my babies" has taken a hit by this terrible economic climate. Keeping a positive outlook is a mater of survival and sanity. Again I say"much easier said........." I don't want to focus on problems or challenges. This will only give those "illusions" more energy. thus I come to the reason for this blog. To remind myself and anyone who might read this note to LOOK for and pay attention to the little messages that come our way. I find them in all sorts of places and opportunities. I receive my daily"notes from the Universe" sent directly via email. I also find them when I look down and find a feather. I collect those feathers and keep them in a jar. What is a joy to bend over to pull a weed and find a sometimes, a very tiny feather looking back at me. I am reminded I am not alone. Perhaps an angel was passing by and left me a tiny reminder to hope, breath and let go....!!!!!!!! My spirits are lifted.
Spirits can be lifted and funny bones tickled in other ways. I took Jason and Kate out to "happy hour" and believe me they need some. We had such a nice time being together and catching up with news about Lauren and Ashton[my grand children]. Other things always come up..........but there in Kate's glass was another "little message" or at least we laughed and looked at it that way. Thus the picture of the smiley face you see in the picture. You may not see it right a way but it changed and stayed and morphed into many charming smiles. We captured this one felt "tapped" and realized we are blessed and on the right path..... each....his and her own path.....plus our path together.
