Be careful what you ask for...

In September of 2012 I set out to become healthier - not unhealthy - but not happy with stature.

Since that time...  October 2012 the Mister had an episode that gave him a new Aortic Valve.  After a wonderful vacation in Chicago he collapsed as we were boarding the Megabus.  Thank God that it happened at 6:59am and not at 7:02am.  The angels that presented themselves that day were overwhelming.  Emergency people were there in less than 5 minutes.  ER doctor who said "I don't know what to tell you, but he was dead, and now he is alive."  Daughter at my side every minute.  Guardians taller and stronger than any building in Chicago cleared the way.  One can only surmise that life abundant is still to be lived.  

In 2013, I had three knee surgeries.  The first was scheduled as a Total Knee Replacement.  I had many adventures with medicines I will never take again.  I connected with an infection and had a revision (i.e., replaced knee with cement and lots of medicine to cure the infection) that introduced me to the wild world of IV medication and scary reactions.  In October, the knee was replaced and extended rods were installed because I am "an active person".   Since then I have rehabbed the knee.  Rekindled my loving relationship with life and as a wise woman I met along the way taught me.  I am starting again.  

I have delved into many different interpretations of Divine Presence throughout this adventure.  I found that my Celtic roots have always grounded me.  I know that Angels have always protected me.  I feel the wisdom of the Ages when I silence myself.  A decision to spend time with a basic story from the Gospel of John for the next 40 days has been made.  

Living life Abundantly.  Loving with wild abandon.  Being present to the moment.  Releasing the hold that flat screens have on my life.  Reuniting with Nature.  These are goals for the journey with the words from the Gospel of John.  HE SO LOVED THE WORLD.....

Been a while!

I have been going through metamorphosis in extreme measures.

I have finished my Healing Touch Practitioner program.  My papers are in for Certification.  My small business of Healing Touch is going better every day.  

I have wonderful moments that glisten with love.  

I am not the person I was when I started the program 5+ years ago and I am not the same person that posted the last time.

I have changed.

How you ask?  
1. Clarity of thought and direction
2. Voice is clear and able to speak my thoughts
3. Focus on what is important
4. Awareness of a bigger brighter world
5. Blessed in a million ways 

Now what is my next step?  Regain the dedication to my own personal health.  I am not unhealthy now but I am not happy with my stature!  That will take some renewed dedication!  

The fiber of the world is going to mix it up on the mud of the earth.  We will see how far I  go to get back to a more reasonable stature and healthier life style only by increasing my activity!  

On the road again!

A new day

Hello Tuesday!
I see you have a basket of surprises and treats for me today!
I am thankful and appreciate the opportunity to share.
I am centered and focused and can walk through the day with joy in my heart to share with others who may need the smiles.
I will walk gently and listen carefully to all that you have to say.
With a heart full of gratitude,
Healing Touch Practioner, Apprentice

Change the texture of the fiber and the mud...

It has become clear to me that change is afoot.

I do not actively seek change but have learned that I need to accept it rather than fight it - OK so that lesson is only hours old... no more contemptous remarks about change - more like - come along and be my friend!

I have redirected my fiber fetish recently. I still knit some, finishing a long shadowed cross stitch and some sewing. Recently the fiber that I have held is the fiber of a book, the binding, the pages, the words. Reading with a savage thirst for knowledge...

So to close this transition note I offer these words:

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next. Amen.

Monday is just a word

Been on this plan for a while now....
Looked at the exercise today....
Said - what the heck! Go ahead and give it a try....
100 is just a number!
But when you accomplish 100 Dumbell Rows and 100 weighted step ups...
Well you feel - hot and sweaty and exhausted but accomplished...
No matter what happens from here today I know where I started and what I accomplished before 8 am!
Monday is just a word!

Sunday visits are fun

I love a surprise.

I had a planned practice session with my daughter today. Always nice to have a good client practice session with a good sense of humor thrown in there for comfort. I need to practice my Healing Touch technique and get the questions to a comfortable point and the listening peaked.

So I get people I know to lay still and I lay my hands on them and practice my gift. Works for me. I learn more each time I do this and I can see a pattern developing that I can continue along in comfort, naturally.

Back to the surprise. I got a phone call asking me to teach a friend and her friend how to knit Socks! How much fun is that going to be. I need the practice teaching (period) and what better way to teach sock knitting to teachers. This will be a fun experience. Win - win all around.

So many new doors openning and I just need to go on through them... interesting.

So there are no pictures today. Monday is suppose to be dry and sunny. This will be great for pictures... Lots of pictures... promise.

Maybe even the two turtles will be available for this photo shoot!

OK. Now all the emails I have ignored all day. A small meditation and then to bed...

Each day I learn to Let Go and Let God...

Sweet Dreams to you all.
