Tiny Miracles

Pin It!

Because there are thousands of tiny miracles and reasons to choose happy.

For all of those...and so many more - on this day of thanksgiving - I'm grateful.

There They Were

Pin It!

And there they were.

Two sweet girls.

From the safety and warmth of their barn...they'd come out to greet me. To smile in the early-season snow. To remind me.

Every thing has changed.

All that was...is no longer. This particular holiday....in this particular year is going to be hard. No thing ever remains the same. There will be an empty chair at this year's table.

Their eyes spoke louder than words ever could.

We're grateful to be here. We're grateful for the cold.  We're grateful to be healthy and strong and alive and free. We're grateful that we're cows instead of something other. We're grateful for this day.

Somehow - I found comfort and warmth in their soft feminine energy and gaze.

I think they came out just to remind and reassure.

This is new. This is the first year. Give it time and space and air to heal. It's all going to be okay.

An Offer of Trust

Pin It!

Because - it's raining. And because - I love the rain....and the gentle time and space it allows for quiet...for contemplation.

I'm thinking about this past year. Thinking about the next one. Thinking about where I am...and how I am right here and now today.

How is my heart feeling?

I made a long list.

If I knew I could not fail...what might I do with this one precious gift of a life I've been given?

My head wants a plan. It wants a clear path. It wants a specified direction. It wants to tell me what and where and when and how. It wants to assure me that there's a right and a wrong. It wants to make promises that I know neither I...or it - can keep.

If there's one thing I've learned - it's that no thing is predictable. Whatever it is - it will be different than what is expected.

My heart doesn't know. It has no answers. It wants no thing - no plan...no path...no direction.

For this here and now and today - I've decided to let go of that list. To breathe. To offer up my trust and hope and unwavering belief. What happens will happen.

And - always - to listen.
