Abundantly…

Today…Bertha…urged me…to look around…and…celebrate all the abundance that I see…

My first thought…an abundance of raindrops…I listened to them…earlier…as I sat reading in the contemplation chair…there was no other sound…just abundant drops…landing on the roof…nourishing the plants…replenishing the ground’s store…

My second thought…an abundance of air…as I took a deep breath…filling my lungs…my body…my soul…

My third thought…one that came directly from…you know who…an abundance of love…but…she said…that one comes with a catch…unlike the others…I control how much…love…I experience…directly related to how much I give…to others…and…to myself…

PS…May your love be as abundant as raindrops and air today…

Love Confirmed…

Yesterday…I asked an Elementary student to draw me a picture…this is what she drew…

Now…it would have been a cool picture on any day…but…yesterday…Bertha…had been…encouraging…demanding…that I love more…

So…here…was what…I had to call…a…sign…that…Bertha…as telling the truth…

When I looked at the picture…I noticed many things…first…it said…I Love You…seven times…and…as I recall…seven…represents…completion

Then…up the side…it said…today is the day…which I thought was amazing…and…then…there was…happy…six different times…and of course…the beautiful stick girl…

After I had proudly hung the picture on the wall…and…taken its picture…I decided to write her name on it…so I wouldn’t forget who made it for me…

Heaven

It was then…that I realized…the true blessing…that I had received…and…like the…Grinch…my heart grew…three sizes…
