Finding gratitude... I have been restored to well being. I am finding joy in each day where I am able. I've enjoyed both a snow storm outside my window and a rain storm where I literally heard it start outside my open window....the soft splatter of drops against the grass and leaves. I for the 2nd time since Oct 2013 sat outside on my back patio in the warmth of the sun. Do I want to be self quarantining? No. I miss my family and friends. But I am safe. As safe as I can be at the moment. I'm enjoying this new pace. In sitting with my thoughts. I'm resolving stuff. I am also very grateful that I am privileged to be able to sit put. I am incredibly blessed with my current situation. I am deeply grateful to those who dont have my option to stay in who are keeping us all running. The medical profession. The police officers, EMTs, firefighters. The store clerks, restaurant workers, pharmacy workers, store clerks. I am grateful that they are doing what they are. I wish they had the choice I do. I wish things were more fair. But I cant change that so I send gratitude and love to all. Just wanted to share an update. Thank you for this sacred space to reach out within.
