My life is so good! It's interesting, fun and exciting to see what wonderful surprises and opportunities each day is going to present. The trick is to pay attention so that you don't miss the "gifts" that come your way.
Let me tell you about just one recent day in my life. A friend of mine was in a bind and asked me if I could cover her store for her for a couple of hours. It wasn't in my "plan", but I knew she needed help so I said okay. She felt like I was doing her a favor. In reality, she did me a favor. I met some interesting people and had some wonderful conversations. I may even have another Reiki client because of her. After I closed the store, I went to visit a hospice patient. She was a beautiful elderly lady who is actively dying. An aide told me that she like the song "You Are My Sunshine". I visited, talked to her, sang "You Are My Sunshine", prayed with her, held her hand and she responded. She opened her eyes. She squeezed my hand. She moved her mouth like she was trying to speak. It was heartwarming, touching, special. As I was leaving the nursing home, I ran into some people that I knew several years ago. Two of them were now residence of the nursing home. We talked and I gave one of them a neck and back massage. It was a perfect day filled with many gifts for me.
As I mentioned in last week's blog, I had this amazing Reiki client. I learned so much from her. She was a wonderful gift. Last week my family was over to celebrate my husband's birthday. Time spent with any or all of my family is always a gift. We're taking a quick trip to visit my youngest son. We weren't sure if that was going to happen this year. That is a special gift.
My point is, LIFE IS AMAZING!!! Pay attention. Watch how it unfolds. Be flexible. You may think your day should go in a certain direction. Then something comes up to change things. Go with it. That's usually where the surprise gifts are hiding.
