It is Leap Year. An extra day, a gift of time. For me, I am extremely grateful it is 2012 and our family is moving from intense grieving into rediscovering joy in life. Over the last two years, I wished for time to pass more quickly so “time could heal”. And it does eventually, with the help of God, the angels and a lot of friends.
Yesterday, while shopping in Target, I saw a pretty silk scarf that reminded me of the ones my Mom loved to wear. I felt a tender spot in my heart of missing my Mom. But the grief is not all day, every day anymore. I am thankful I can appreciate an extra day this year.
I encourage you to do something a little special for yourself today. If you are not in a “jump for joy” place, perhaps a long bath with candles and music, or meeting a close friend for tea.
Have a beautiful day,
Blessings, Nancy Lennon
