Twists and Turns

“Healing is a lifelong journey into wholeness. Becoming healed involves learning to trust life.”   – Barbara Dossey

Trusting life and making goals seem at times in conflict.  I am not a list-maker by nature but every now and then I give it a shot.    The other day I had a list in place that went something like this…. Go to gym, Visit Crystal Cave, Walk Ruby. 

 The 5 AM phone call put the “list” on hold.  My new beautiful Grandson, Noah, was about to make his way into the world.

I am blessed.   
A couple of days later,  I was about to get some cleaning done around the house when my daugher asked if I wanted to go to  Gymboree with her and my incredible Grandaughter, Ella.   I did hesitate but then,….. I came to….. I figured, how many chances am I going to get to watch Ella play and laugh, tumble and jump.   Laundry will wait…children dont. 

Trusting life, to me, means making the list, and remember priorities….not being too hard on myself when the priority might mean a day of rest.   Lets face it, we can make a list, and I will ….  but if we are open to life, the unexpected might just happen… We need to keep walking, follow the road, take the important detours and keep our eyes on what we really want the most……follow the twists and turns…… and enjoy.

Ella on her path

What we call the secret of happiness is no more a secret than our willingness to choose life
