Lighten Up

Dear Hearts,

Next Monday, the sharing will be "Holding On & Letting Go" which is a writing piece that I sat down & wrote a couple of days ago.  It kind of lightens things up a wee bit.  In the next couple of weeks, I will also post "News Feast" yet will strive to lighten things up as well with some other writing ideas that are "percolating" in my creative brain.

Blessings for a beautiful weekend.  Sometimes we may find that we have to go out of our way to find ways to lighten things up to get back to that peaceful place within each one of us.  That is what this weekend is all about at our home.  So far, it has been a weekend of presence & deep gratitude complete with being a kid at heart & getting a balloon on National Donut Day yesterday yet still respectful that it was the 70th anniversary of D Day.  The beauty is that because of the indescribable sacrifice of my Grandpa & so many other brave men & women during WW11, I can choose to have these kind of freeing days.  That is a gift that was just one of the legacies left by these brave soldiers. 

Today is about new adventures...and how sometimes just wee adventures can leave a lasting place within our hearts.  It is about a wee tour our oldest son & I have been looking forward to for 7 months, a walk for 3 (with tea) to the Lake for literal reflection & those amazing endorphins, the petting of golden fur of our smiley golden retriever who is just so full of natural joy that it is contagious.  And there is more to come that is not even planned yet looking at the day like a mini adventure lightens the day & adds to the thankfulness within my heart.

My heart's hope for you today & every day is that you give yourself the moments of peace & gentleness whether you feel like it or not.  It is a gift that we can give ourselves that truly matters.  We make time for what is important.  Being gentle to ourselves  & the world is what matters don't you think?

Smiles, Saundie :D
