I’m so *glad* you chose to stop in today..thank you!
We can see through the eyes of love only when there’s love in our eyes.
And to be able to see that way while yet we live is the biggest gift of all..-Oprah
As I write, it is Sunday morning. Later this afternoon, the children both have soccer events to participate in. Since this is time consuming and physical, we are allowing the rest of the day to unfold as it may…
Unfolding means that I honor each of our individual personalities as we move throughout the day. I allow each of us to experience the day as we may..This means that I as Mom and “queen bee” set the stage for that to happen. I allow the children to wake on their own. As I wake on my own. I enjoy preparing breakfast but to honor our individual timelines I set out snacks and fruit and then as each of us are ready for breakfast I prepare it..I honor our individual tastes by preparing breakfast that delights our tastes….One chose pancakes, one chose poached eggs on toast, I chose tea and am waiting for Lunch…
It is my pleasure to honor our hearts in this way. To not force my taste upon my children or allow them to force their own taste upon each other..During the week, we each move through the day according to our “appointments” so it’s nice to have such a relaxing break.
To honor my own heart whispers, I light my candle, play my music, open the forward and aft hatches so the cool air circulates through. I prepare my pomegranate green tea and sit outside in the cockpit breathing in fresh air. As I move through my day, I exude peace, and this peace touches my children’s hearts…As I move through my day, I pick up a pile here, do a chore there, and ask the children to offer a hand with their own pile, their own chore. As I pick up my clothes, they pick up theirs, then we go back to enjoying our individual activities. I realize that each space we clean makes room for something fun, joy filled..soon the energy within our living space is peace filled, joy filled, and clean..without the tension normally associated with cleaning or chores..
In such a manner, we will go to soccer peace filled, joy filled excited to be there rather than thinking about how it cut into our day off…
And the best part..the part that brought me to the computer to share with you…is this:
I mentioned that I have my music in the background..I don’t have an IPOD, but I do have ITunes..and within ITunes I have “Joy’s Favorite Playlist”..So, I have *this* particular playlist on as I move about..and each song that pops on I think “Wow I *love* this song!” and my heart is delighted. Sometimes I dance, sometimes the kids join in, we sing..then it hits me..Umm *duh* it’s my favorite playlist..so of course I should love each song!
And, I think, *this* is how my life has been lately. As I’m in the moment I think “Wow, I *love* this moment!” That thought happens all throughout the day…And I think *that* is how life should be..a list of my ‘favorites’…all strung together to compile an hour, a few hours, an entire day, a week, a month, a year..my life…
Can you imagine??? A lifetime of “my favorites”…which happens when I allow for natural unfolding, when I honor my heart whispers, when I honor the heart whispers of my loved ones..
We may each have a different path..but we all have the same goal..all circulating around Love..some wish to be loved, some wish to give love, some wish to Be Love…..
May we allow the space around us to be clean.
May we clean in a manner that is joy filled, peace filled..
Because we are excited to have the room to stretch, to relax, to Be.
May we allow our hearts to be open to ‘our favorites’,
To All that delights our senses..
May we celebrate ‘our favorites’..
And graciously, generously share them with those around us.
May we recognize that we each have individual paths,
Individual tastes, individual heart whispers…
May we allow room for our loved ones to experience the day
According to their individual heart whispers..
Even as we allow for natural unfolding within our own day…
May we release struggle, tension, volatile emotions..
As we realize that life is meant to be peace filled, joy filled,
Ease filled, wonder filled, *magical*
And may we allow peace, joy, ease, wonder, *magic*..
To guide us through ‘our favorites’….
