Daily Journey by Grace to grow in Gratitude & pass it on
I’ve been keeping some feelings of loss / grief at bay. Oh, I know they’re present. I’m working on befriending them, to walk with me versus running me on a leash.
We have stardust in our DNA. We are all connected and created by one Divine Source of Light and Love. May we each be willing to let that Light heal our individual wounds and historical trauma; drawing us towards being people of Peace. May we be willing to share the world’s wealth and goods globally, ceasing to engage in wars, choosing to respond in Love in all situations.
A new Dawn and currently the opportunity to hold those on this website in prayer. Abundant Blessings to each of you.
As said by a few others…”not tellin'” Answering diminishes unselfish acts and would only serve to feed the ego.
I thought others knew that heating up real chocolate milk was better than water mixed with powdered packets of fragmented ingredients. It is a decadent treat, and brought smiles to many on Christmas Day.
By disciplining my thoughts to others, ie., how can I be of help to others and take that action versus internally asking “what about me?”
Merry Christmas to all🕯🎄
By showing up in my circle of activities today, being the best me I can be, with a genuine smile. No facades allowed.
In May, I had to transition out of a work center that I directed for 9 years. I’m now in a tinier space. Shredding of more old files is needed as management modified the location. Last week I was informed I’m still somewhat needed, I just won’t be returning to the space.
Living gratefully has reduced the emotional swings I’m still prone to have.just by my nature. I’ve come to know whether it’s an up or a down time—“this too shall pass.” I’m grateful for Grace that provides acceptance.
Living by spiritual principles; kinship with bio family & family of choice.
I have a wonderful 91 yr old cousin in senior housing whom I’ll call. I did send a Thanksgiving card but will reach out verbally. Three adult nephews also come to mind who lost their dad, my younger bro in March. I’ll also call my cousin who’s living with cancer.
O Purple. How regal you are! Spring crocuses jumping out of a clump of snow, heralding triumph over winters long clutches. In June you stand tall as an iris, swaying just a little in the breeze. You remind me~Stand straight, posture is forever!
I’m dropping the word “wants” & re-writing to “what comes through me”~~Compassion, advocacy, kindness, listening, speaking the language of the heart. I honor & respond by getting out of the way for Spirit to work through me.
I’ve received help & assistance time & time again. One tender memory of help is from a few years ago. I was in a transitional care unit rehabbing with a knee replacement. A guy who became a dear friend brought me fresh meals which needed refrigeration. Another rehabbing resident had a fridge & offered space for my meals. I was able to share fruit & food with her, while listening to her 70+ yr journey, which got me out of myself. It was a Holy week of miracles each day.
In my childhood home, I grew up saying Grace before our evening meal. My mom led that prayer. Over the years I incorporated a Grace including thanks for the crops from Mother Earth, laborers in the field and factors, the delivery drivers and grocery staff. I’ve strayed from that practice and will return to it. I know I’m mindful when eating out to bring a portion home.

Thank you Nelson for sharing the gift and Grace you received!
Thank you for this spontaneous birth of song! I really needed the 3rd verse. 🦋
Thanks Mary Pat, yours & Holly’s comments touch me. It hits me that I’ve not had any validation for this significant job location loss. It’s more complicated and lol, it dawned on me I’m looking for a “fast forward” button. One step at a time is needed.
Thank you Holly. this has been a challenging change in my work life.
