I'm grateful to wake this morning from a complex night. Today is Memorial Day here and I would first like to honor those loved ones that passed, those who served, and all those who came before. I'm grateful for the imprints each left on this World to shape it as it is today. I'm grateful for all those who left an imprint on my life and my perspective. Saturday morning I went on a photo shoot to capture a field of flags. My intention was to edit them and use one today. But this weekend seems to be a lesson on releasing expectation and the past and as part of that I do not have the resources today to share those with you. I'm grateful to let that go and know that there is a reason for everything. Yesterday was full of little surprises, the largest of which were two baby opposums in the basement of my boyfriend's mother's home. I'm grateful for the symbolism it held for me, as I have had my own things stirring in the "basement" of my mind. Memorial Day seems to have brought with it a series of old memories that, like the opposums, needed to be gently released to where they belong. I'm grateful for this release and I'm grateful to recognize its process. I'm grateful to have had a prophetic story to use as a resource and I'm grateful to have a loving boyfriend and an "army" of angels to guide me through this particular release. I'm grateful for my Grandmother's spirit that is never far away. Who do you call on in times of struggle? This Memorial Day, who are you remembering and honoring? Perhaps it is time to also honor the small parts of ourselves that have "died" and been reborn as well. May today be gentle with you and fill you with love and reassurance.
