nothin' but love

i spoke with an old and dear friend today, a mother of 3 who has just written a book. she spoke of life and how we wake up after 10 years and realize we haven't taken care of some areas of ourselves (mostly as a result of focusing on the work of raising our children). it enabled me to feel gratitude for all i have been able to do and be in the past 15 years.

i see life each day as a new beginning. there's a thread of woven interconnectedness to our lives, yet as we grow in some ways we become new people; we look back and see a different person in ourselves. in other ways we evolve gradually like a tree with new rings, ever maturing through many delightful sunny days and many difficult storms.

through all of it, there's love, the most powerful force in this world, this life, this existence, which operates as God's Will for all of us. i never want to be unmindful of this force, this ever-flowing light which is waiting to touch each soul's journey in this life.  no matter where we are, or what stage of life we're in, or how agonizing the test, there's love from God to us. it's just a matter of remembering and letting it touch our hearts as we face each new day, each new beginning.
