Then I had an appointment with my dear friend and chiro, Sandy Epstein Levenson to work on some tingling in my left hand and leg. Turns out that I have been sitting weirdly and throwing my posture off, when I am at the computer throughout the day, which is putting pressure on nerves. She suggested alternating standing and sitting as I type and investing in a treadmill desk. Looking into that. Also noticing swelling in lymph nodes near my left clavicle…gotta get that checked out too.Had some much needed time with my 4 year old little Buddha-grandson Collin and we read and played Three Little Pigs (under blanket:), sometimes he was the Big Bad Wolf and sometimes I was and sometimes my Adam played that role as we alternately huffed and puffed away. The hour that I spent with him was pure fun and good medicine.Last night, I had a wedding to officiate and left in plenty of time (2 hours prior to the time I needed to be there) and the Universe saw fit to put soooo many cars ahead of me on the Schuykill Expressway heading into Philadelphia which typically is backed up anyway at that time. I found myself alternately carrying on and using words that are not in my spiritual vocabulary, breathing and asking to clear the way and demanding to know the purpose and then asking for some angelic support. Who should call, but my supremely spiritually connected friend Cass Forkin who reminded me that all was well. When I asked God what this was about; the benevolent answer was to remind me that I’m not in control and need to ‘leave the driving to Him/Her’. Cass was right, of course. My intention ALWAYS is to be reliable and follow through on my agreements AND sometimes I need to invoke the Serenity prayer, remembering to discern the difference between what I can and can’t control.
I kept the bride’s family informed about my ETA which kept getting later as I hit every traffic light and then went through a street fair; finally arriving, shifting gears to calm clergical mode and the ceremony went off without a hitch. The couple was lovely and both of them cried. Everyone understood and smiled when I started the ceremony reminding them that the best laid plans…..and that love was worth waiting for.
