Bringing Gray’s Ashes Home

Well, my backyard baby finally gets to come inside the house forever.

Her garden is looking more beautiful every day. I go out and sit for a while every morning and meditate a little while I drink my coffee. The other day a honey bee flew right into my line of sight and landed on a flower. I was in such a state of disbelief as I had not seen a bee since I  left the Bay Area, 3 years ago!

I watched in awe as the bee worked its way around the blossoms and then took off – I began to cry, not out of sadness but out of being overcome with joy.  It felt like the Universe had sent this little messenger of hope to tell me, “You got this. Everything’s going to be okay.”

I believe these types of moments are so important TO BE OPEN TO experiencing, and to pay attention to emotionally. I’d been so shut down and numb for so long that now, just to feel the sun on my face and sit enjoying the stillness of an early morning feels like a miracle every day.

Until next time …
