A Sign Worth Sharing

While I was wakeful dreaming, Chloe, our havanese poodle mix, jumped off of the bed and went outside. I can't remember the last time she got up in the middle of the night, but I figured since she did, so would I . Still dark out, I walked to the bathroom where the only clock is, by the way, and saw the time...4:44 Apr 4

It took me a few moments to register. 4:44 4 4

444 - the angels are all around us!

I believe that the weeks before Easter are a very spiritual time when the angels expose themselves in big ways. I love being aware of their energy and participation in my life and experiencing all of the goodness they share.

My sister, Jo, has 3 owls in her trees right now. Kristina and Levi announced that they are in the process of adoption. Tonight i get to be with 3 of my kids and their families before a family wedding this weekend. Not to mention the amazing dream I was living just before i got up. (More on that later.)

It's a "what's next" day and it is only 9:00 in the morning! :)

A Time for Everything

I am very busy these days as is most everyone around me. Keeping up with classes, birthdays, volunteering, friendships, social media, marketing, organizing and my health has proven to be a lot. Pacing myself and remembering WHY I do what I do is my continued area of focus. A conversation with a new student is measured against five minutes spent on facebook. Both are rewarding to me. Inspirational messages and videos which my "friends" share always make my day. I do, though, love creating my own heartfelt memories.

Every day I wake up with a ready spirit and open mind, excited about the possibilities of the new day.

It is in this very paused moment that I realize "writing" isn't listed above yet yearns to be in my daily routine. And although I type and write messages all day long, "writing for me" is bubbling up to the surface once again.

Looks like my time is in need of rebalancing. There are those extremely important activities which always make the top of the list. Family get-togethers, grandmothering opportunities, and canasta. A girl's got to get her cards in. :)

What can I let go of time wise? I stopped playing candy crush months ago. The pictures in my head interrupted my sleep too often. Not to mention the desire to place a person's nose in between their eyes just so I could get three across. Ugh!

I stopped cooking for the most part. I can put together a healthy meal but the days of roasting tomatoes and making my own sauces are a thing of the past.

Our garden is growing last year's seeds. I let that go as well.

Balance is key. I just need to see which key I need to use next.
