If the last few days are any indication, this is going to be a summer of blessings.
There were a few moments last week when I wasn’t so sure about being blessed, but the event that brought such sorrow is already bringing some changes and closure and comfort that I had not anticipated. Seemingly random things have occurred that give me the courage to “let go and let God”. I’m doing something today that I might have previously postponed. I was given something I thought was lost. Someone told me something that gave me great peace. I met someone at a restaurant that I hadn’t seen in fifteen years and was surprised by how easily we sat and talked…as though we had just seen each other yesterday. Even the dust jacket of a book I picked up yesterday made me smile and say a prayer of gratitude for its encouraging message.
And of course Gary and I continue to discuss memories and stories. Yes, I’m writing them down.
Family and friends continue to be so supportive. If you are reading this and I have failed to thank you for something, please just give me time. I am very appreciative of everything and everyone.
Summer days, and blessings, have just begun…
