A REMINDER

Beloved,

I have had 4 days of sun this week so I am going to claim that SPRING is here regardless of what the calendar says. What is one of the things you do when spring first comes?  I took my car for a car wash with undercarriage wash to get rid of the salt.  Much to my surprise, the car wash I have used for years installed a new washing machine and I can no longer get an undercarriage wash without having the wax also.  I was stunned and so disappointed.  The owner says he is getting a lot of disappointed clients. He was not aware that it was a big deal.  If I get the wax put on, I really can’t see well out of my windshield. It seems to either be crackly or smeared. The weather gave me another day of sun so I set about finding a car wash that includes the undercarriage wash.  To my disbelief, it is soooo hard to find one. Isn’t it amazing that you can’t know what is no longer available until you try to find it? I spent hours trying to find a station on the computer but I could not find one except my old favorite one and one other who bent my front license plate in half so that eliminated him. Eureka, after traveling 30 miles I finally found one.  MY car is happy, I AM happy and I now have more time to find a carwash closer to me.

This morning I received an email from Dee Wallace and she included a song that brought the sun out more strongly.  Without even realizing it, I started singing. It is an old favorite and most people knew it as a child.  It made me feel like Spring IS HERE and it brought me all the sunny feelings from youth so I wanted to share it with you.  I admit, I do not remember the 3rd and 4th stanza but I knew the first two.  I hope this song brings the sun out for you too.

What happened in Texas is heavy on all of our hearts.  The mere thought of what people went through and how powerless they are, brings me to tears.  Yet, there is always good in everything that happens and I am happy to share one event that you probably did not hear on the news.  Actually, I know that a lot of good things did happen but we are just not aware of them.

I know that we have heard so much about Covid 19 and the vaccines.  I have not heard of this new health opportunity on the news but here it is.  It is from Israel but it does not matter that it is not in our country.  It should be promoted or at the least, mentioned in our news that there is another avenue of hope when it comes to the virus. If you know anyone in the news, please share this news so people will have more hope in some other methods being explored.

Mark Cuban, a billionaire is someone more people with money could emulate. Billionaire Mark Cuban’s New Drug Company is Producing Low-Cost Generic Drugs Cutting 90% of the Markup. It does my heart good when I hear of wealthy people using their abundance to help humanity and the world.  No one should have to struggle to pay for life saving procedures.

EUPHORIA INTO AGITATION

Beloved,

Yesterday, I was euphoric.  It felt so freeing, like I could just release any and all tension.  This was the time to relax and not carry the world on my shoulders. I could feel the whole country taking a deep breath and releasing all the tension that we have held for soooo long. The day before, Wednesday, I watched the whole inauguration (I don’t usually turn my TV on until 5 or 6 in the evening) and it was beautiful.  Different than normal but beautiful in its forthcoming peace.

Today I feel so uptight like I don’t have enough time or resources to get everything done. Why the sudden shift?  I can’t find the answer but this talk by Eckhart Tolle:” One Day at a Time” will certainly help.  I think I have fallen back into trying to do too much all at once.

I read Fr. Richard Rohr’s Center for Action and Contemplation on a daily basis.  This was a special note from him that had special meaning at this time on Earth.  I got a different insight into Moses’ Tent of Meeting. I feel compelled to share this with you.

This video of Lee Harris in action gives another revealing insight into the progression of humanity.

SMILE

Beloved,

When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I ask myself is: What day is it? Then I decide whether I can roll over into a second chance to have a few more winks or do I need to get up right now. With this pandemic, there is not much to do or many places to go. Except for the first responders, the rest of us retirees are staying put. And…the daylight does not really begin until 7:30am.

This morning I woke up and suddenly remembered that today is Saturday and I never sent out my newsletter to you yesterday.  I started to giggle and a grin spread over my face.  How could I forget that yesterday was my newsletter day after writing it for the last 12 years on Fridays? I feel a little foolish but at the same time, this is not a catastrophe. I goofed and I am still smiling. I guess the seriousness of the world events including the health problems are just so much more important that I cannot condemn myself for slipping up. Soooo here is my newsletter.  Please smile with me.

Cheryl Richardson has questions that resonate with most of us. NO answers because each of us will need to answer for ourselves. It does feel good to know that you are not alone in your questioning.

There is a lot of “good” happening in the outside world but we do not hear a lot of it in the media.  This is such a wonderful happening and shows that humanity is acting for the good of planet Earth.

congressman and a homeless man … who gave with no forethought for themselves.  I could not choose between these stories so I am giving you the link to both. They are both heroes in my book.

Eckhart Tolle has a message for us.

I want to leave you with a reason to smile.
