If you would have walked along with me this week, you would have seen many things. Life is a series of ups and downs and zig zags. I’ve said many times one never knows what is around the corner and it is so true.
One of the blessings of my week was spending time in spiritual reflection, something I haven’t done in a long time. Deep reflection almost like the retreats I have attended in days gone by, but this time I was physically distanced from the participants and it was at the school I am presently working in.
It felt healing to think and reflect and question. I plan on making a little space in my days to be still and let God in. What better time to do that than in a pandemic.
I have always had great faith , but as of late I have let the connection I have had slip away. Today and yesterday I felt that presence in my life. A lovely warm feeling knowing I am loved and can share that love with others by my actions.
It is a reconnection that will give me a dose of love that is different from all the other love in my life. For that I am grateful.
I want to take this time to thank all the co-moderators of #sschat for the time and effort they put into planning, and running #scchat each and every month. These are already busy people who give to others because they are passionate about what they do.
You do make a difference.

I need to take time to smell the flowers as life is on fast forward for me at this time. Taking time to pause helps me focus on today and what I can do. I don’t need any reminders, but life really can change direction at any moment. We never know what is around the corner. So just for today , I will focus on taking each step I need to. Making sure to take time to stop, reflect and move forward.
This year I decided I wanted to get stronger with weight training. I know as I get older this is more important than ever, so today I had my first training session and it felt great.
This is new for me, but as I contemplated what I needed , I knew taking the time for myself in this manner would be beneficial. As I journey through this process I hope to learn new skills that I have never had before and already I can see this will be a new venture that will be worthwhile.
