My Job

It is not my job to make anything happen.  It's not up to me figure it all out.  If it hasn't happened yet it only means that I'm not ready or that something better is coming.

It is very important that I stay open and see what develops.  The possibilities are endless and I never know what wonderful thing will occur and make my dreams come true.

I have seen it over and over again in my life - when I am working so hard to make something happen it stalls.  Everything becomes more difficult and not pleasant at all.  As my unhappiness grows the worse it gets.

But then, one morning I wake up and the sun is shining and the sky is blue and I remember that everything is working out exactly as it is supposed to.  It is coming to me in the perfect way and at the perfect time and I can't rush it.

My job, my only job, is to be patient, focus on what makes me happy, quiet my mind and stop all of the planning and arranging so it can come to me.

Training Wheels

For me, trying something new is like learning to ride a bike for the very first time.  It looks so easy and then the fear sets in.  When I think of all the things that could go wrong, I can easily change my mind and not do it at all.  I have to remind myself to start small and keep the training wheels on.  Something to help support me while I gain my balance and until I feel confident enough to keep myself stable and moving forward.

Joy Amplified

Knowing what to expect with each new grandchild amplifies my excitement beyond belief.  I was thrilled when my grandson was born and I understood how it felt to be a grandmother for the very first time.  Then our sweet little girl arrived and it seemed unbelievable that it could be even better.  
Now, with the 3rd I feel like my heart might burst with happiness.  With every precious new arrival my joy increases and I feel so grateful and very blessed.

50 Years

How could it have passed so quickly.....

It was over 50 years ago that the Beatles performed on The Ed Sullivan Show.  And so it began - the British Invasion of America.  Music that touched me so deeply and became the soundtrack of my life.

The Book of my Life

My life is like a wonderful book. A thrilling, adventurous, love story with each new chapter more exciting than the last. Every page brings anticipation of what fantastic new thing will occur and I never know what it will be.  Sometimes it can be tempting to try to jump ahead and figure out the ending but I wouldn't want to miss the pleasure of the journey as the story unfolds.
