Every single human being is a miracle of conception and construction (and, for now at least, a miracle of uniqueness). Today, I love everyone:
o The colleagues from my LeadBoston class with whom I had a delightful dinner and conversation last night whose loveliness was still on my mind when I woke up this morning.
o My husband – you were worth the wait.
o The mailman who delivered the mail.
o The client who sent the check earlier than I expected (and I needed it so).
o The weatherman telling me it’s going to rain all day, indeed, all weekend, and get colder (April showers will bring May flowers. And I am so going to appreciate the next sunny day!)
o The Keyspan workers fixing something on the street – keeping our power going.
o The police woman watching them work.
o The clerk at the corner store who always smiles and has a kind word when ringing up my purchases.
o The owners of the houses on my daily walk whose flowers have begun to poke through the soil (thank you for planting those flowers – they are going to bloom so prettily soon).
o The teenager who looks startled when I say hello, but says hello back.
o The adult who ignores my hello. (It’s okay – my hello is all about my need to greet my fellow human, no matter whether they respond or not.)
o The beauty salon worker who waxes my eyebrows.
o The friend who surprises me with a lunch invitation (she’s even treating – yippee!).
o The pharmacist who renews my prescription.
o All the people who invented the computer and the internet allowing me to write these words and put them on my blog.
o My husband for setting my blog up and…
I could go on and on but I won’t. Today, I woke up in my right mind as my grandmother, Mother, always said. And today I was able to see that each one of us is a miracle and deserves acknowledgment.
(A final appreciation to Eckhart Tolle for his book, A New Earth, which I am finding an absolute treasure and delaying reading the final 20 pages because I don’t want it to end.)
