gratitude wednesday 5/7

Wednesday morning 7:09 am. Up early to the morning sounds in West Oakland. Birds chickens and traffic helicopters.

Long light days. Longer and longer. Moving towards the solstice.

I’m grateful for the light that brightens and fades and brightens again. And never goes out.

I’m grateful for work. For the opportunity to use my skills and share my talents and my intuition and my energy. In this too I am blessed.

I’m grateful for stepping up for Rose’s health challenges. I am there for my daughter. In love and with dollars. Time for the next step in her recurring abnormal cell growth; it’s been a few years of this—time to evaluate treatment.

Knowing that the love and healing energy of the universe is everywhere, and knowing that love and healing energy is in me and in everyone I love, I declare health and perfect healing for Rose as she moves through this episode of diagnosis treatment and recovery. I am so grateful to know, to clearly see, this perfect healing state for Rose. I release this word to the power of love and health everywhere around in and through me and I let go and let spirit heal. Blessed be.

I am a channel for the love and positive energy I summon every day. I am so glad to know this.

I am grateful for errands done, food cooked, healthy meals and my commitment to life. Sober. Solvent. Present. In joy love and fun. Blessed be!

I’m a barely tamed hippie, sage, seasoned, sarcastic (not all the time any more, but still). I’m a mom, a daughter, sister, a neighbor, and a friend. I’ve been on this meandering journey — like you, probably — seeking a better connection to and experience of peace, harmony, and fun in every bit of life. I’m single, quite good at it, and mostly love it. I’m here for the conversations I get to have with you, which these days center on exploring the mystery and beauty of life, work, health, aging, and creative expression.
