This too shall pass.
By lifting the hearts of others today and in so doing, lifting my own for beauty, truth and goodness to shine forth.
That all things are possible with God.
How much I miss the company in person of friends, family and a loving man in my life in a meaningful relationship. It’s been beautiful to see the world come together in so many ways during this pandemic. I don’t mean to minimize that in any way. I just miss hugs and kisses of persons I love and await being loved by and of loving in return. Love to all those suffering and alone. Blessings to you.
Gratitude matters as it takes us from a shallow ‘me’ centered state to a place of acceptance, love and awareness and of giving back to our fellow man, to nature, to other sentient beings and to those beloved moments of our days. Gratefulness, at its purist, is a faithful practice of heightened love.
My sweet and loving , Sissy (as I call her). She is 7 years older than me but that didn’t even stop our closeness as kids. We check in with each other every day. We laugh, share, cry and support each other. I hope I go first; it would crush me if I lose her instead. A close male friend that I have known for 30+ years. Entirely platonic. We are there for each other almost every day during this ‘stay at home’ order. Also, the spirit of my late husband, with wisdom from beyond.
Being grateful has certainly shifted my thoughts to favorably working for and with my boss. I am very independent in my work environment. Regardless, I needed a readjustment in my attitude and being grateful for him allowed me to experience a more trusting professional relationship. Being mindful and grateful had everything to do with my changed perspective. I am very grateful to a friend who assisted me in this awareness and for this community so supportive and loving.
Is this the ‘breakfast club’, or what? Yes, for me as for many, it is early morning. The peace. The expansiveness. The inter revelry of a new day.
When I accept that I don’t know what’s happening in the next moment. Who will be in my life? Who won’t? It isn’t the ‘why’ that really matters. That sucks me into the past? It isn’t the ‘what’ either. What will become of me? What will I do next? That sucks me into the future. The transformational power for me of ‘not knowing’ is in the acknowledgment that all there is lies in the moment. That’s where peace resides and clambering from past to future ends.
By embracing the silence and saying ‘welcome’ to peace.
I am awakening to the joy of oneness with Spirit. I recognize that many people are suffering with Covid-19. I can hopefully bring some joy to others by reaching out and making contact today. I have a next door childhood girlfriend., whose husband has Coronavirus. I will pray for him and pray for my friend today.
Today, I participated for the first time in an online magnificent Easter morning service joined in message from various Unity ministries. It was moving. It was enlightening. It was so extraordinarily inspiring and powerful. Blessings and love to you all this Easter Day!

I love bats too, Michele!
