I have been reminded this weekend about life having unforeseen circumstances. We were driving home and my mother called me and said your Dad is being sent to Regina because his nose won’t stop bleeding. Wow, I was not expecting that as we were only a half hour from town and we were expecting to be celebrating my Dad’s ninetieth birthday the next day. Okay change direction for the weekend and focus on my Dad in a different way. My family has spent some time together this weekend as many of us were already gathering when Dad needed to go to Regina. We go along in life making plans, thinking that things will go along more or less how we expect. This is sometimes the case but often it isn’t and yet we still somehow think that we have some control over how things will go.
I am making plans at the moment for shows this spring and early summer as well as planning a tour in the fall. I know that nothing will happen if I don’t make some plans but I also know that I really won’t know how things will reveal themselves until I am living those plans. I do love to plan, I think it makes me feel more secure some how. I think that’s okay especially if I realize that it is false security. This idea of trust comes forward again, trusting that the Universe is there giving support, perhaps even helping with the plans. There are many ways that this support shows up, whether it is in the right people coming into my life to help out or the kind word from a stranger. I am grateful for the people who have shown support this weekend, the dear friend who texted to ask about Dad yesterday when I thought I didn’t need any support but I did. The family whom I have had a chance to visit with and enjoy their company. I have enjoyed visiting with my Dad in the hospital as he loves to tell stories and to beat me at crib, as we wait a bit longer to get him back home.
May you have a great week and may you recognize the care and support the Universe/Spirit is offering you.
In all things creative,
