Tending The Heart ...

Where have I been, you ask? I've been tending to myself ... my heart has been heavy with the vibrations of the exterior world ... it's trying to hold its own ... feeling grateful for all that I have ... the wonderful people I know ... saddened for the state of this country ... the violence in the world ... the hungry ... the homeless ... and most of all for those who don't see or feel the consequences for what they do.

It's been hard for me to write anywhere about anything, including my journal that I normally jot in every day. I've been saying a lot of prayers ... asking lots of questions and trying to stay as positive as I can.

I know I'm not alone. there are many people feeling the same way. I remind myself on a daily, sometimes hourly basis that I cannot control what is happening in this world and that this too shall pass.

I take solace in meditation, the garden, simply living and the gifts each day brings.

Me too. Know you aren't alone in how you feel.

And me too. "I cannot control what is happening in this world and that this too shall pass." I have to remind myself of this very often.

It's a scary world out there right now. I remind myself to breathe and hope this all passes soon.

A big hug to you, and fellow feeling.

What a lovely sunshiney flower!

I join you in the uneasiness of life here at the moment. There is peace in nature, though, and I'm taking refuge in that as much as possible.

we all have a place where we can go in times like these - we women seem to be the backbone of the blogs - perhaps it's because of all of our years of life experiences - i'm grateful for the support - always love the way you "say it for me", joan -
