Share the Joy Thursday–Gratitude in Being

All is well in my little corner of the world.

I am surrounded by Love.

And It radiates out of me.

I am full of creative juices waiting to be let free to flow.

I know I am not alone on this journey.

I have the love and support of those traveling with me.

And the guidance, love and experience of those who went before me as well.

While the Sun may not always be shining,

I know that there is a Light that is always present.

***********************************

My Dad would have been 70 years old today, if he hadn’t died 15 years ago.

This song reminds me of him probably more than any other song in the world.

He loved Neil Young.

I love the line :

“Old Man, look at my life. I’m a lot like you were.”

I see my Father in me. And I am grateful that he lives on in me.

This version of the song is so beautiful and pure. RIP, Daddy.

 

I hope that you find the many wonderful things that are right in your world today, Beautiful Ones.

Big Love !

Such a bittersweet day my friend. Loss and grief and remembrance, wrapped up in love and memory and joy.

You celebrate your father and you celebrate yourself.

Sending you a very large, warm hug and softly whispered, "I'm glad that you are you." ♥
