Today, I am grateful for our new patio and back yard. George and I spent some lovely time this weekend sitting on the patio, listening to birds and squirrels and looking out at an expanse of green grass and trees. It was beautiful, restful, rejuvenating.
Today, I am grateful for hospice. The good people there are taking care of my online friend Janelle and her husband, Ken. Janelle has a brain tumor, and Ken is caring for her at home with help from hospice.
I was sad to read that Izzy the Hospice Dog, owned by Jon Katz, had died. Today, I am grateful for Izzy's good work with the dying...and all the good work done by dogs in service to people.
Today, I am grateful for peace. It seems there isn't enough of it in this world, but if we seek, we can find it, perfect pockets of peace in hectic, uncertain, sometimes insane or tragic lives; the peace that passes our understanding; the peace we find in the Divine.
Peace be with you on this beautiful Monday.
Where do you find peace? What are you grateful for today?
