Breathe

After all, I don’t see why I am always asking for private, individual, selfish miracles when every year there are miracles like white dogwood.  ~ Anne Morrow Lindbergh

This is one of my favorite paintings by a new artist I recently found, Helen McCullagh from Australia.  Her paintings are happy paintings, and they create (for me) a sense of wonder and amazement.  Anne Morrow Lindbergh is a favored poet, and these words create an internal reflection of gratitude.  Life is all about gratitude, and that is often found in the simple moments.  When we can find and hold gratitude for the small things, we are able to push through some of the darkest moments we experience.  If you are sitting in a dark place, I encourage you to look up and out, even for one brief moment, and find something that might create even a glimmer of gratitude.  One foot in front of the other, one moment at a time, stopping to take a breath in between the lightness and the darkness that make up both our universe and our souls.

Welcome to my site. I am writing to give people inspiration to hold their voices, especially as concerns the grieving process. My hope is that everyone finds a little inspiration from my site. We are all a work in progress! Namaste.
