I am thanking you all in advance for myself and my family, trusting that this amazing community of friends will be here for us once again, and that over time we will find ways to reciprocate your generosity and kindness. And, of course, if you cannot help at this time, we totally understand and appreciate all that you have done in the past. We are so deeply blessed to be a part of such a loving community.
Last night I did check messages before going off to la-la-land and found this wonderful surprise from my friend Debra at She Who Seeks
and so I would like to send this honor along to some bloggers (who consistently drop by and fill my days with sunshine...gosh there are so many and this is really impossible, I mean truly there are sooooo many generous souls who drop by every day...but I will choose five, wait make that 13, no how about 18? and trust that you well keep spreading the love and sunshine around! Forgive me please all of the rest of you dear ones who are not on this list...I had to stop it somewhere. SOOOO much Gratitude for you and all of my non-blogging friends and family who support me non-stop with love, love, love...my heart is humming and full, full, full!
And thank you to Jan, Momma Buddha Chick for drawing my name for a fabulous prize: the 6 cd set of The Dangerous Old Woman by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes! How cool is that?!!! And I have lots of time to rest and listen...all things work out just as they need to in life. (And to Jan and my Buddha Chick Sisters....thank you, thank you for your encouragement....this weeks lesson and podcasts are incredibly supportive...sorry girls if I'm not online commenting a lot...I will be checking in from time to time to see how you are : )
My intention is to be back online more consistently again by Monday. I will be viewing your messages (between sleeping) and if I'm up to it will reply...please forgive me if it takes me a while to get back to you. When I am awake, especially when I first wake up my heart and mind go to prayers...spontaneous prayers for friends and family who I know are struggling with health (emotional and physical)....you are never far from my consciousness. Even if you don't hear from me directly...I'm sending out good, healing energy for you! This is just how my brain operates...I wake up, say modah ani (a gratitude prayer) then my list of who do I know needs a prayer or reiki right now tumbles through my mind and my heart softens and opens.
gentle steps my friends (and truly, may the floor be there to meet your feet when they touch down!)
