Today’s Intention: feel connected to everyone and everything.
Dear Diary & Friends,
It is so good to be home. I drove 3,982 miles with a 2 year old. Pretty awesome! That doesn’t include all the miles we rode in cars with other people driving, that is just what I drove according to my odometer.
Today I got up around 7am. I got a big squeezy morning hug from Nick. He is an awesome hugger. I meditated and set my intention. I took it easy in the morning. Angel and I ate cantaloupe for breakfast. Angel was really happy to be home and happily played with her toys. I did some cleaning and put away everything I brought on our travels. I talked to Hyatt about my adventures and about how things had been going around here while I’d been away. Then in the early afternoon Hyatt left with Bebe to McKinney, Texas. She lives there and so does Hyatt’s mom. He won’t be back for a couple of months, he is going to the Woodstock fruit festival and then is going to work for a while. I really enjoyed having him here. He was amazing help in the greenhouse and in keeping up the yard. I appreciate him coming and helping out with the “Community of Abundance”. Game nights on Monday’s won’t be the same without him. Bebe will be back to stay a few days next week.
After Hyatt and Bebe left. I drove to work, Savana came along and met up with her boyfriend Tyler in Round Rock. I enjoy spending time with her and we had a fun drive.
George and Angel were very happy to see each other when we arrived at work. I ran errands the whole time and Angel played with George and his girlfriend Peggy. I had a lot of fun running errands. I consciously tried to connect with everyone I came in contact with. My interactions with people were great fun. Here is one of them:
At one point I was waiting in the self checkout line at the grocery store. I had 2 items. A lady had arrived in line at the same time as me and there was that awkward energy of who was going to go first. I wasn’t in a hurry. I had all the time in the world. So I told her to go in front of me. She was surprised and very happy about that. I continued to stand in line enjoying people watching. Then a spot opened up, I took a step forward when the man in line behind me with his daughter who was around 7 or 8 year old pushed past me and took the empty checkout spot. It took me a second to realize what had just happened. Then a feeling of “what the hell” came over me. I examined the feeling for a minute and rolled it around, wondering if I wanted to let it go or hang onto it. Then I decided to let it go because I had all the time in the world but I still felt my intuition saying to make a connection with that man. Not a negative energy connection but a positive energy connection, letting him know that he was still accepted and forgiven. I walked right up to him with love in my heart. He was refusing to acknowledge me…we all know when we have not been living our truth and he knew. I said to him gently with a beaming smile, “how are you”? He then looked at me and saw my smile of acceptance. He energy immediately shifted from one of aggression to an energy of letting go. He sighed and said, “I’ll be better once I’m out of here”. I smiled and said, “yes”. Then another spot opened up, I walked to it and completed my transaction feeling peaceful and blessed. Somehow I knew that through that simple interaction we both had benefited greatly.
I appreciate having an abundance of time.
I appreciate connection.
I appreciate people.
I appreciate daughters.
I appreciate gifts.
I appreciate handstands.
I appreciate Texas heat.
Thank you for being a part of our lives.
I appreciate you!
