Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

~Harriet Tubman

Happy Monday! I am grateful for the life that I have been gifted. I’m grateful for my dear family, my sweet spouse, wonderful friends and neighbors, long walks with sweet dog friends on warm, winter days when the wind blows your cap off if you don’t hold onto it. I’m grateful for being outside when the sun comes up and the brilliant shades of pink and salmon and orange on the horizon meet the tops of the leafless trees and bathe the branches in relected brilliance starting at the very tippy top and washing down the limbs until there is nothing but golden, blinding radiance and the warmth of the sun caresses chilly cheeks and casts long, long shadows. I’m grateful for playing “giant on the hill” with my canine companion and laughing at our silliness, for having fun and walking fast, feeling my heart pound in my chest and breathing big gulps of air through my mouth, feeling my leg muscles loosen up along the way, getting stronger, moving as they are intended to move. I’m grateful for the Truths that come to me when I’m outside breathing fresh air, knowing that what’s happening anywhere is happening everywhere, that as long as there is the tiniest bit of anger or fear or jealousy or envy or anything else that is truly foreign to the divine nature of the life I was gifted with anywhere in my heart, the universe will continue to meet that weakness with opportunities to overcome – not to hurt me or to defeat me but to strengthen and support me in being all that I can be and live as fully as I may. As we harden off our seedlings in early Spring so that plants will be resilient and survive to great harvest, pain and discomfort can be a gift to my prosperity – that in facing my fears, realizing my anger and jealousy and envy, I will know there is nothing to be afraid of or jealous or envious of or angry about. I am grateful to learn at the end of every day that I had enough for that day, that I am safe, I am loved, I am good enough. Peace and blessings.
