What a good day for an anniversary of life!
*At first impression there was monotony, but then I realized the copious shades of service, layering me with a contrast of health to my impending illness.
*The silent moments allowed me the luxury of looking within, strengthening my roots, and stretching my listening abilities beyond my sight.
*Relying on stores of nurishment, I gained gratitude for all the preparations both spiritually and physically of myself and others.
*The hush of winter reminds you there is a spring coming soon, full of life and awakenings!
The winter for me is melting away. I feel the warmth and energy slowly piercing the fog of my brain and slowed body. Thank you for your patience with me, and thank you for your loving support. I am truly humbled when I think of all the lesson plans others created on my behalf; the time spent in notes, phone calls, and visits; the amounts of faith and care that were extended to me and my family; the schedules and needs that were rearranged to ease my burdens; the moments of focused listening to my thoughts...I thank you. These are feeble words, but heartfelt. I hope I can someday be that robin for you on your wintry day, reminding you that the climate will change soon.
