Yesterday was the 21st, in PL, that is the day we do a special service of “Thanksgiving” and expressing our appreciation for the blessings we have received.
Yesterday my husband was taken to the hospital, I had called 911, and the situation warranted he go into hospital, and he was admitted. The events started at least 24/48 hours prior to the 911 call. Come last night I was tired, exhausted, and what I call blotto, I didn’t have the energy to really eat, but knew I had to eat.
In PL, we have a Precept, #7 Everything exists in Relativity, and Precept #11 Always be with God. I believe with all my “Being” that “God” is always with me. When I prayed the night before on what to do, I was given a sign loud and clear, something happened that everything in me knew, I had to call 911.
When I sat depleted at the end of the day, too drained to do much else but sit and let my mind sort itself out… friends came through for me, my sister gave me a steadying voice and the church sent over Japanese curry and rice (one of my favourites) this is a meal we all share after service on the 21st. Another friend had made homemade baked beans. The angel that brought the over is a dear and long time friend, who just sat with me and shared the quiet moments with me. I fell asleep with the joyful love of friendship lulling me into a fitful sleep.
This morning my husband texted me.. his message warming my heart and a new day begins. In PL we are taught to never lose faith, believe and live every moment of your life. If there is pain, sadness, it is there because you have known true happiness, and you are feeling the other side of life.. but it reality it is all ONE.
There is no right with out left. No yin, without yang. When we live each day, with truth in our hearts.. there are no regrets… memories and lessons yes.. but no regrets.
Time to start another day. All the best to you, and to all of my wonderful and thoughtful friends, near and far. I love you … each and every one of you.
Be creative, today is a fresh canvas.
