Hello Friday! It’s an incredibly still morning in my little slice of the world and I am grateful to be alive in that stillness, one with the peace and quiet, breathing in the world around me and feeling love and life. I am grateful for a day filled with prayer and the clear thinking and steady voice of a beloved friend, for the difference a day makes, for the safe travels of my California family and knowing that my dear mother’s energy will be present for our reunion tomorrow in her memory. I’m grateful for my brave spouse and her willingness to keep fighting the good fight and for everyone who works tirelessly to improve the lives of the most marginalized among us. I’m grateful to have seen the first woman nominated to run for President, for hope and collaboration, inclusion and the willingness to work for the benefit of everyone. My intention for this gift of a day is to look at the faces of everyone around me as I move throughout my day and to think a good thought about each of those lovely faces, to hug and receive hugs, to smile and be kind and welcoming. What will you do with your gift of this day?
