Water is also great symbolism for going with the flow, which is a good goal for me today. There are two things I want to take my daughter to today but they happen close together at opposite ends of the area. I could stress and rush and try to force it to work. Or I can choose to go with the flow and see if it falls into place. I don't know about you but the latter definitely sounds better to me; more in line with the day I would like to create.
Water can be a source of hassle, as when I found the leak under our sink a couple weeks ago. Or water can be a source of relaxation and even meditation as I tune into the rhythm of ocean sounds or the patter of rain, even the sound of the water falling around me in the shower.
I'm very grateful for water. I'm grateful to have the easy access to it that I do here at home. I'm grateful for the warmth of my morning shower. I'm grateful for the ocean sounds that help my daughter sleep. I'm grateful for the meditation aide as well as the way water can help wake me up. I'm grateful to have good drinking water right out of the faucet. I'm grateful for all the conveniences of water that I enjoy that sometimes get take for granted. And I'm grateful for the symbolism and reminder to go with the flow today.
What is your favorite thing about water? When other simple conveniences might we be taking for granted in our daily lives?
May today remind us we are blessed to have what we need. May we truly realize what a gift water is and protect our resources. Have a beautiful day!
