Happy Friday! Happy Smiles Day! I am grateful to be alive today, to draw breath in and feel my aliveness. I’m grateful for cool mornings and open windows, hearing the town roar to life in the distance, the beep of a neighbor’s car alarm and knowing they are travelling to do something they enjoy, the rustling leaves as some critter makes its way through the dark yard outside, the cats’ quiet but focused attention to that rustling. I’m grateful for creating new paths and not knowing what’s on the way to where I’m going but knowing it’s good. I’m grateful for dear friends and collaborators and the joy that comes to me through my work. I’m grateful for prayer and my faith and all the love that flows to me – please let me be a channel. Let me be a channel. Today, I intend to keep the faith and be open to the new path. Peace and blessings.
