Gratitude - Week 39

March 26, 2017

"Gratitude is not a fair weather virtue. True gratitude means appreciating your life no matter what the storms bring."

Gratitude: Week 39 (March 19th - March 25th)

Blue skies and gratitude

Pausing in amazement I glance out the window and consider the splash of blue among the bitter clouds. Amidst the darkness, the vibrant color distributes a joyful brilliance as it peeks through the veil of gray, this sprinkling of kindness gazing through the angry sky emphasizes the beauty hidden beneath the haze.

Oscillating with these tiny offerings captivates me with a sugary dose of grace while gathering patience for this journey beneath the blanketed skies. These moments stir splinters of anguish from a dormant hideaway, a husk of sadness buried beneath the clouds and a promise offering the space to grieve.

Losing my son anchored my heart with fury while shattering my visions of the future. The ferocious contrast of love and loss sifts through my mind with a sprinkling of indigo representing the brightness possible while scattering tenderness to nourish my soul.

Swirling among the darkness with its peaks of blue these skies provided the idea of hope, the place I longed for in this space of sadness. Guided with this momentum to embrace an opportunity to wonder, I gently mend the shattered pieces.

Grief’s storm weighs heavy on my heart with the softness of life lingering nearby, the blue intruding from the clouds of despair, eager to captivate me with joy and dismantle the barricade to my heart.

Compassion gently arrives; unpacking the sadness and placing it beside me, with a slight nudge forward.

And like the light beneath the clouds, promise remains within the moments I gather gratitude for all the seasons we were able to share. Noticing the blue skies always waiting beneath the storms, the love that never leaves, and the gentle touch of time.

From the list...

    My Dad, Uncle Sid, was full-blood Norwegian, and Mom was 1/2 English and 1/2 Scotch-Irish. So that stoic Norwegian in me fights the "rainbow lover" Scotch-Irish in me! :) <3 you and yours. xoxoxoxoxo
