Monday Musings...

I am thankful:


- For the flight attendant who gave me a bottle of water for my drive on Friday even though there was no beverage service.

- For Kate. For seeing me. For seeing me so intently that I could almost physically feel her embracing my presence from across the room.

- For water and what it does to my spirit. Everything from the hot bath on Friday night to the roar of the ocean and cleansing rain on Sunday.

- For new friends. My new people. From the friends on the East and to the West and the ones from the North.

- For the coffee shop in Pacific Grove and the new memories that have been seeded there.

- For the tears that came and the weeks past where I have felt them coming yet was unable to embrace the emotion and let it be. The wave that finally came over me was powerful, vulnerable, raw and so very real.

- For the shift that I allowed to happen inside of me and the willingness to let it be OK to grow just now. To take new steps this very moment towards my purpose.

- For music and the perfectly timed playlist that filled the radio waves on my drive yesterday.

- For the mother on the airplane traveling alone with her two young children. One heaving into the air-sick bag and the other not old enough to understand. This reminded me to be gentle with my own daughter.

-For the magical moment the sun filled the sky on the flight home with a sendoff only California could offer. Whispering reminders of things to come.
