It seems as though once upon my time, Sunday summer afternoon’s were spent poolside/ beachfront/on a dock/pier somewhere fabulous; Provincetown, the Hudson Piers, Rehoboth Beach, or Key Wests’ docks… drinking cocktails, spinning vinyl and mindfully dancing the afternoon away…
Now, anyway, they are spent contemplating the previous weeks’ good/bad/indifferent experiences and what I can take from them into the following week ahead. Along with preparing meals and household chores. LOL, I guess I’ve gotten a little boring and old. But for that I am grateful and know in the bigger picture this is time well spent. This past week has been filled with ups and downs yet a single message I received stayed with me :
“The Will of God will not take you where the Grace of God cannot protect you.”
And even on my “oh-so-humbling” days all I know is that kindness and hospitality got me thru. Kindness and offering words of support can make a difference and a moment of grace.
