Hello Saturday! It’s a cool start to a cool, autumn day in Kentucky and I am grateful for the chill, grateful to be awake, grateful for that cool air passing through my nostrils and bringing me life. I’m grateful for sweaters and jackets and thick socks, a healthy furnace to make our home cozy and comfortable, for long walks with sweet dogs, hawks who are unafraid long enough for me to snap a picture and visit just a bit, for good fortune unfolding in my friends’ lives, for the fun of preparing for a party and anticipating collective, creative energy flowing – for God showing up in that Joy and fun! I’m grateful for the opportunity to learn new things and old things today, for all the things that will become clear to me today and all the things that will remain fuzzy and vague – knowing that they will become clear at just the right time. I am blessed and I am grateful. Today, I intend to keep my eyes and my heart open and to see as much of the world around me as my senses will allow. Peace and blessings.
