since my accident has drawn to a close.
I didn’t cross a bridge to mark the milestone, as I have in the past.
I went for a swim, floated around the pool in complete serenity.
I made nutritious smoothies.
Then I went home.
I thought of Battambang. Of Emergency. Of Bangkok. Of angels & spirit guides.
I drank strawberries – and I prayed.
I heard the barking sounds of a new dog in the ‘hood.
I looked up at the sky, the trees, the stick-straight herons soaring elegantly.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I called my sister. We spoke of snow. Hers, not mine.
I planted a seed outside, in the puddle-filled, rain-soaked ground.
May a tree of life (continue to) take hold, then grow and grow into the firmament & beyond.
Much healing and peace has occurred. Interestingly, my grandson is in Battambang now on a mission trip.
Hi Sharon, Really? What kind of mission.. and what does he think of BTB?
Teaching and preaching. What can I say? A lovely heart-feeling boy and a huge growth experience. I’ve not talked to him since his arrival but his photos show some real unique experiences. I know nothing about Battambang. He will be a changed young man on his return. He misses his soft bed and toilet paper but is adjusting. Loves the food! I’m off to San Miguel de Allende in Mexico on Monday……7 hr flight vs 32 hrs! Excited as many expats, art and a UNESCO site. A bit cooler than Bali too which my body will like.
I’m sure he will be changed – for the best, I imagine.
Safe travels, Sharon, and enjoy la vida bella in Mexico! Would love to hear about your experience there, when you have a chance xx
Wow…7 years…I don’t remember that date.
January 29th, I believe is the date I remember…but I try to forget the dates and remember your stories from the years AFTER! How lucky we ALL are. Namaste indeed. Much love and peace and smoothies to you! xo
Thnx OJ! Some dates are harder to forget… like a birthday, and RE-birthday 😉 love you xx
Thanks for sharing. I’d love a Skype. Mazel tov. U r a miracle.
Happy life, Amit!
Wishing you a very good year.
Toda raba, Shimon… you too.
It sounds like you crossed a different kind of bridge this year…
Yes Sherry, perhaps I did…
And your dad has just crossed a bridge of his own.. may he rest in peace on the other side xx
You have much grace, Amit. Out of all the blogs I follow, I look forward to your posts the most. Something about your gentle spirit draws me. You’ve been through much and I sense a peace within you. Thank you for sharing each week 💗
Very sweet of you, Jen. It’s an ongoing project in humility, humor and honesty. I try to share from my heart (mostly, while other times from my gut!) Blessings to you… 😉
Beautiful! Namaste to you and to the seed you had planted, may it grow strong and high. 🙂
