Daily Journey by Grace to grow in Gratitude & pass it on
Swaying in a breeze-dancing with Mother Nature and daily enjoying the many ways she kisses me and wraps me up in Her Beauty.
My 8 coworkers and I received awards today at work. We were surrounded by abundant accolades of Gratitude, respect, and heart felt thank you’s from administrators that brought me to tears throughout the event. I wore one of my mother’s glistening bling necklaces, for I needed a part of her with me in spirit. I know she’s proud of the accomplishments I’ve done at this vocation for 25 years.

My 8 coworkers and I received awards today at work. We were surrounded by abundant accolades of Gratitude, respect, and heart felt thank you’s from administrators that brought me to tears throughout the event. I wore one of my mother’s glistening bling necklaces, for I needed a part of her with me in spirit. I know she’s proud of the accomplishments I’ve done at this vocation for 25 years. My coworkers & I are civilians in law enforcement, working beside those who’re literally in the firing lines these days. I wept deeply hearing the words “thank you” for I’ve not heard them in far too long. I’m grateful for a very full heart.
A current challenging situation is leading me to ask some “why’s?” about the circumstances & people I’m around. What I hear in the quiet is “Listen”. Thus leading me to Listen to a bigger circle around me.
I find that outcomes in challenging situations often resolve more amiably depending on my verbal tone, facial expression and word choices.
I can review correspondence i recently received & detach from the feelings it erupted. A once close friendship now mired again by occasional mistrust. Hopefully moving towards acceptance, as it won’t be what it once was.
All whom I encounter this day, including animals who cross my path.
There are too many to write. However, a starting place happened as a child. I had an intimate experience of feeling I was connected to the Energy of the Divine via a cold window pane as I watched the flicker of Christmas lights outside across the way. Years later I would experience and viscerally know, yes there Is a God, and I’m not It.
Spontaneous anonymous acts of kindness hopefully unseen such as while driving
Projecting ahead versus being here in the now. Right “now” is all I really have-my breathe in, and out.
I still tear up recalling the outpouring of support & love of those who attended my bother’s funeral in June; the many who sent cards & called.
I can write a few notes & get them in the mail & send some unexpected texts, especially to nieces & nephews. As I start this day, I reach out to You on this site—I’m grateful to pilgrimage with you through life at this time in our lives. Abundant Blessings to you this day! 💕
In solitude I’ve experienced Sophia & her Gifts of Wisdom in very gentle ways. Also, my SoulCollage time becomes expansive with creativity.
Upon awakening each morning, I’m conscious that there are many gifts that lay hidden in each day. The Divine creates numerous “ah ha! Look-see-feel” moments. It is I who must cultivate eyes that are open to see & a heart not afraid to embrace what’s new before me.

I hear healing being furthered in your own inner heart of childhood memories by this experience. Thank you for sharing this moment of Grace.
