“You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.”–Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet
Another year has come and soon to pass into memory. The tree is up and with each ornament my heart fills with gratitude as I look back at 2014.
The year 2014 when my Little Geordan turned 21
In Spring the lovely blooms from the peach and nectarine decorated my garden as if they were personally hand delivered FTD arrangements.
As the rains of April approached it gave me time to reflect on the ‘eternal now’ and digging deep into discovering more of my inner self and knowing as I travel deeper I enter the field of all possibilities. With this inner search I looked back at my first twenty years and realized that with all the twists and turns and all the ups and downs… we can make it another day by bouncing back and moving onward.
Therefor, all I see is this life I created -an outcome of my ideas; With a sense of awareness I go forth offering more peace -beauty – and love.
We crossed over Summer and entered into Fall how sweet to be nominated for Citizen of the Year and what greater joy celebrating our Third Annual Seed Swap for The Helpful Hands Foundation bringing people together and sharing stories.
November brought so much to be grateful. We listened to our sons first recital Minuet No. 3 by Johann Sebastian Bach – what joy I felt in my heart and what sadness knowing that my dad would never hear his grandson play – may he rest in peace. These thoughts only deepen my appreciation for the loved ones that are still here with me, an appreciation that does not wait for Thanksgiving Day.
…and so Winter is upon us, life has taken a new dimension for me, I want to savor every minute and not rush through things. The December garden brings me the Autumn Early camellias and surprised me with the lovely Poinsettias blazing with it’s lovely red leaves.
Here we are with the Season upon us and I can not explain being melancholy and happy at the same time.
