Acts of Loving Kindness

Today did not start off feeling like it was going to be a good day, as I had only been able to sleep until 2 am before the committee in my head began a meeting and it was all down hill from there despite my greatest efforts at meditative breathing, etc. Anyway, I forced my feet onto the floor at 5 am and did 1/2 hr of low-impact aerobics.

When I opened my e-mail, there was a very sweet "I love you" surrounded by hearts and flowers which had been sent to me at 1:20 am.....guess dear LM was also unable to sleep.

There were other e-mails from many blog friends to start my day.

It was pretty cold and frosty when I stepped out to go to work and after a few deep breaths the day began to get better.

After being at work an hour or so, my dear co-worker, Nancy came up behind me and gently laid a heated neck warmer over my shoulders. There was an immediate release of some major tension.

A noon time trip to the post office brought me the most beautiful card and letter from my high school best friend, Lynne and her husband, containing the most lovely words and prayers.

There are crocuses coming up in gardens around town.

Fewer tears, so much love.
