Connection can come in so many forms and I felt a variety today. Between reaching out to some friends I love but rarely talk to because of distance these days, reconnecting with other parents and staff at parent orientation for my daughter's preschool, and even having a little date dinner just my husband and me; I am feeling well connected socially.
I also got a small window to meditate today, which I admit turned into a nap pretty quickly. It was still much needed. I was also blessed with the opportunity to take a short but beautiful nature walk. Walking passed gorgeous yellow flowers towering above me was very grounding and healing. The connection of the quiet, sacred moments were overdue.
Now as I write this my bitty baby curls into my neck to sleep. Her soft pants tickle my neck and it is a much needed connection for the two of us. There isn't as much bonding time for kiddo number two and with the added strain of her pained cries these peaceful snuggles are very welcome. It is a deep connection beyond the heart to the very souls that brought us together.
I'm so grateful for this soul connection. I'm grateful for the variety of connections today. I'm grateful to reconnect to the outside world, both human and nature. I'm grateful for time with my husband. I'm grateful to just walk. I'm grateful for the great school and staff that will create another wonderful year for my daughter. I'm grateful to meditate and to get some sleep. I'm grateful for so much support today from friends and my amazing mom. I'm grateful to connect.
What ways do you connect? Which connections are most healing and fulfilling for you?
May we seek the connections we need. May we be blessed in knowing we are connected and supported. Have a beautiful day!
