I am off to join a group of women in Palo Alto for our quarterly meeting. We meet four times a year to celebrate the seasons, so today, is our day for Spring.
I want to thank Gentlemanfarmer for bringing to my attention how wonderful this world we live in is, and how much we have in this country. We have the luxury of complaint, and we have power to immediately pass those complaints on to a vast range of people. We have education, and fresh water pumped right to our homes to drink, water our plants, and bathe. I will say if you live in CA, you worry about the education part, and people are trying and it is adequate, and it could use an infusion of money which it seems does not exist. No, no, no, I say. Don't go there. :)
I realize now what a luxury it is to complain, and no one should know better than I how much that is true. One of the blessings of chemotherapy was I only had energy for "presence." There was no judgment, no complaint, only appreciation for each breath. Thank you, my friend, for the reminder. For today, no complaints, only appreciation for all that I do have, and I have plenty. My life is rich and blessed!!
Thank you for being here.
