monday morning

Work is intense. I'm at my desk for 10 to 12 hours Monday through Friday. I worked a couple of hours on Saturday (couldn't work more because we visited Hammy's parents) and at least six on Sunday. I'm doing everything I know how in my attempt to keep my head above water but I have the line from the Ben Folds song "Brick" running through my brain all the time: "She's a brick and I'm drowning slowly" (substituting it for she, of course).

But yesterday in meeting, this was given me to use as a mantra: Grace is returning. There's more about joy and welcoming, forgiveness and the lessons required which teach us how to let go of what we no longer need in order to move forward. The gist, though, is that we can start anew as many times as we need to.

I love that. Grace and starting anew. Letting go of what we no longer need. Yes! We can start as many times as we need to? I feel like I have had to. Starting anew for me sounds like clearing away cobwebs of old beliefs, judgments, indebtedness. Going forward with Spirit and realizing the battle isn't always up hill; sometimes it's letting go of something, freeing yourself up. Not trying to keep dragging all your baggage up the hill with you! pop out the wheels and just let some of the suitcases just peacefully roll away....:) Heide Schlack
