IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

One can easily understand a child's fear of the dark, but what is the greatest tragedy in life is the grown man who is afraid of the light. ~Plato

Today I am grateful...
  • for over the counter Claritin and Nostrilla to chase away the allergy attack on my nose
  • that for no reason I can discern I am feeling sad. It is lightweight and seems to be unfounded and It Will Pass.
  • that So and family were approved to adopt the young Boxer
  • that I still believe in magic
  • for the willingness to do the work, that is God doing for me what I could not do for myself

Everyday I wake up and expect magic. Some days I'm disappointed and some days I have to look a little harder. But the day that I stop looking and expecting, I might as well just stay in bed. ~One Wink

These are days that promote a little sadness I think. Fall has that affect on me.

I hope your sadness passes and you find your way back to sunlight and joy.

Blessings and aloha...

Scott, you're a piece of my magic, just in case you didn't already know.
And I've come to accept the touch of sadness that I feel every year at this time as God's way of reminding me that our lives, too, have 4 seasons.
