A Thank You Note To God

 

Just saw a writing prompt on Facebook (a source for many of them these days). Someone had a beautiful sunset image on their page with the words “A Thank You Note To God” under it and it reminded me that there are times when I forget all of my blessings in the midst of life stuff happening. At the moment, I am lying down with an ice pack under my left knee. It has been stiff and ouchy for the past week or so, and even though I walk and work out several times a week, it still feels like a rubber band that has been pulled too tight. Earlier today, my computer charge cord shorted out and I was grateful that it waited until I had unplugged it from the laptop  before it sizzled and sparked. A few times during the day, I experienced frustration that inflow of abundance hasn’t been keeping pace with outflow and yet I know that I am always taken care of and provided for by a generous Universe. I had the satisfaction of meeting with clients at my day job as a recovery counselor in an outpatient drug and alcohol rehab. I enjoyed being interviewed on a Blog Talk radio show tonight. My debut article for the Huffington Post was published today. I am getting together with kindred spirit/soul friends this weekend. I am still, little by little doing repairs and renovations on  and around my house so that it feels like a haven for me and for all who enter.

Tonight I sat on my back deck and watched the sun set, catching the early evening, late summer breeze, with the serenading cicadas ushering me into a state of slowing down. I lit the twigs and small fallen tree branches in the fire pit and listened to them crackle and the flames leap. I sighed with a need to let go of expectations for how I (in my infinite wisdom) think life should be and instead, accept life on life’s terms, knowing that all is in Divine order.

For all of these things and so much more, I say a profound thank you to God/Goddess/All That Is~

The Only Life You Can Save
One of my favorite wise woman poets is Mary Oliver whose words touch my heart in ways that few others can; as if they could have come through me as well; so personal they are. Today, while visiting my former place of employment, one of my co-workers pulled out an anthology consisting of the works of

Abby's Light
  When a light comes into the world, we hope that it will last indefinitely, knowing that eventually it will fade. When a child is born, a parent doesn't expect that his or her light will diminish before it has a chance to fully express itself...and yet, sadly it happens.  Abby Schumer was

Light Filled Holiday
This morning, I saw a meme on a friend's Facebook page that expressed: LIKE if you plan to be politically incorrect by saying "Merry Christmas" this holiday season. My response to her was: "If I know what people celebrate, I will greet them with their preferred sentiment. I have friends of many diff

My Mother's Daughter
Yesterday, I did a mini-workshop at Awaken Healing Expo and offered BLISS Coaching; both designed to empower people to live the lives of their dreams and desires.

A Matter of Balance
I am a Libra, born October 13th and have found that balance is an essential ingredient in my wellness cookbook. Some work, some play, some rest. Time with friends and family, time in solitude. Time to dance and sing, time to meditate and veg. Kind of a bio-psycho-social version of Ecclesiastes. I f
