Blessings Abound

My living situation has been in a state of great flux lately.  I had moved to a new state three months ago and for two months was ensconced in a home that was perfectly fine and functional.  I had been bartering my rent for some eldercare.  However one week into my stay, that elder fell…

A couple years ago I had a powerful dream.   I saw huge waves coming toward the shore.  And in those waves I saw huge dolphins.  The waves looked a bit intimidating, but when I saw the dolphins, I felt pure joy.   These huge waves proceeded to inundate me and everything else.  I was…

My firstborn niece got married on Saturday.  She was absolutely gorgeous – in the prime of her youth and beauty, glowing and happy among her friends, her family, and her new husband. I had taken a number of pictures that day, capturing as many candid moments as I could.  Among the photos I took was…

For those who think I am too Pollyanna, I want to talk about the blessing of cancer. WHAT??!  Yes, you read that right. Those who know me know that in 2010 I was diagnosed with an early stage of breast cancer.  This threw me for a metaphysical loop.  Up to that point in my life,…

Tonight there will be a full moon.  It may be rainy and cloudy tonight, but it wasn’t a few nights ago when the luminous moon radiated its beauty.  I love full moons. I remember when I was a young teenager having a pajama party with some girlfriends.  We were sleeping in our tent camper out…

I have been away from my family for three months. I’ve only been back two days but already I notice a further decline in my father’s abilities.  This is a man who used to swing a hammer and climb ladders and carry lumber around on his shoulders.  Now, at the age of 80, he shuffles…

I have returned for a visit to my home state of Pennsylvania for my niece’s wedding.  I have been away for three months, immersed in the new and marvelous experience of living in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.  And now not only am I in a different time zone, I am in a completely different season,…

I awoke to write down a dream and the morning beckoned me.  Birdsong wafted through the open window and through the sheer gauze curtains, pale gentle colors painted the skies.  I realized a walk through this sweet May morning trumped another half-hour or so in bed. My first reward was a couple of small quails…

Joni Mitchell was right.  You don’t know what you got ‘til it’s gone. You don’t know what it’s like to take a full deep breath unless you’ve had pneumonia or cracked ribs.  You don’t know what it’s like to move your arms unless you’ve injured yourself in a car accident or had a stroke.  You…

Some days I just feel a bit “schlumpy.”  Sometimes I can pinpoint a reason – perhaps I didn’t eat well the day before, or maybe I’m resisting doing something I know I need to do, or maybe I couldn’t find clarity on a certain issue.  But other times my conscious mind can’t figure out why…
