As I write this, I am looking out my office window into my new yard and garden. A garden that was planted by parents of a friend of ours. Yesterday I ate the first tomato that they had so lovingly planted and nurtured. The birds are singing and I see many butterflies flying about. Tomorrow is Saturday, and I plan to spend time harvesting artichokes, lemons, amaranth, and rosemary.
This moment is very peaceful, and I am so grateful for it.
The nature center where I walk regularly has been closed and just opened up. I took a walk early this morning with my friend Debra, and it was such a simple, once taken-for-granted kind of walk. We didn’t hug (but I got to kiss her dog), and we had a nurturing, heart-to-heart talk. I am so grateful.
I have been playing cards with my siblings and a friend online. We play Pinochle, sometimes well and sometimes not so well (ha!), and that part doesn’t matter at all. We get to enjoy each other’s company. Gratitude.
Blessings to our friends who let us rent this home in the midst of COVID-19.
Blessings to the people who bought our condo.
Blessings to the healthcare and frontline workers whose work is saving lives every day.
Blessings for the peaceful moments that come around even during hardship.
Blessings for gratitude.
Blessings to you, too. Blessings and gratitude for being part of our beloved global NVC community. I hope you have many moments of peace and gratitude… and I hope you remember that you matter and that you are lovable.
May our new NVC Academy courses this month continue to support and nurture you.
