This morning I woke to a glorious sunrise, which I watched for an hour while sipping the most delicious cup of coffee, in bed. A recurrent thought of recent times
appeared, ‘it’s time to write a blog’. To honor this nudge, I’m starting, with more to follow. Here goes.
Just when I was wondering what the Divine had in mind about my time on Earth, something wonderful happened. My dear niece Susan married a lovely man Jim. Since we would no longer be living together, I was given what I ultimately understood as a great gift, preparing for a new cycle, learning more about myself and others. To be clear, there were ups and downs along the way. But what lives in me is the most beautiful present moment.
I’ve had another chance to downsize even more ( such a relief to be unburdened from stuff) and live in a bright, peaceful, welcoming, apartment. It is small but with spacious rooms and even has a gas fireplace. I love this moment in my life cycle. Rather than fading, I feel energized in this Refuge, prepared to serve in whatever way the Divine has in mind for me. One of my daily mantras is, “I am yours, You are mine, We are ONE.
There are some physical challenges. But most of the time I have found ways to deal with them and keep my attention on the Path…..for however long or short that may be.
Most noteworthy though, all this is only possible because of the huge amounts of support I was and continue to be given. This moment would not be possible without the many dear, dear friends, angels, who help me on all levels of this journey. I feel so loved and cared about. My heart is filled with love and gratitude for each. That includes my Quaker faith community as a whole, which held me in the Light along every step of the way.
More another day. Glad to be starting this part of the way forward with all of you.
In Light and Love, Hedi
