|a perfect little pig's tail on my onion!|
Even thought I think I am paying close attention, change is happening every day and right under my nose. But when I can soften my gaze, suspend time and look with all my senses and my heart, I able to perceive the miracles right before me.
When once there was a stool, now there is a girl child managing through her own muscle and determination to claim her place. Right now it is in the kitchen but soon - oh far too soon! - within the world.
And as we move into conversations addressing multi-generational healing in the current session of SouLodge, I see the ways we are changing the experience - narrative - of family in our world.
What so easily could be mistaken for everyday is really the material of my life's blessings and periodically I remember to count them:
Enjoying time together - learning or creating or exploring or seeking to discover the perfect pizza dough recipe.
The gestures, the details that constitute the person ... or the animal
Mealtimes together ... in conversation ... sharing, laughing, teasing and yes,annoying each other but always knowing we are a tight unit.
Discovering that love brings us together in more ways than our minds could ever begin to imagine (but how our hearts so readily expand to hold)
What everyday miracles and marvels are you noticing right now? The best gift you can give your self is to pause, lift up your gaze (being by a window and looking out helps), soften your eyes, relax and sink into the moment. Look, feel, remember, breathe, receive the gifts that dance all around you. And then share them with another. Let's fill our world with these miracles.
