Today, I celebrate playfulness! What a magical quality it is – and we all have it! I had a very timely reminder this morning of the importance of the playful spirit when one of my cat friends suddenly began playing with the strings on my hoodie as I was meditating. The impulse to be distracted was instantly swept away by this rush of gratitude and joy at being included in the play! My friend’s bobbing and pawing at the strings enhanced my meditation rather than interrupted it, and it was such a happy, happy blessing. Thank you, God, for all the blessings in my life. And so it is!
