Morning found its way softly here this day… almost gently letting the world know, you are blessed and things are happening all around you. Take NOTE. Sometimes it is in the gentle beginnings that we have received news, or know that something is happening that needs paying attention to.
Transitions are happening around us;
just as the butterfly, gentle moments to be noticed even from a distance.
Beauty that will astound even through tears at times.
If we but allow ourselves to breathe, to notice, to take the time to listen to our hearts and walk through fear and uncertainty.
One cannot fly unless we release the fear and the burden that is holding our wings, or holding us from flight.
Sometimes gently moving from here to there,
other times quickly soaring like the mighty and majestic Eagle after seeing wonder and release.
Life can be that way at times.
If you are reading this;
YOU are alive,
dance, shout, give praise
YOU have this day
release all the stuff that is weighting you down!
YOU have the opportunity to soar into your life with grandness
rather than be a worrier of others baggage or the rocks of heaviness that you’ve gathered along the way.
Others don’t have that privledge, their time nearing the end
or their transition to the
Next Place just made.
The time we have here, this very time
is for the living, the rejoicing in our moments that take our breath away, in the choices we make;
choose wisely friends,
we only have a short time here.
Life is so very fragile.
We admire so greatly that beauty of the butterfly,
but seldom think of all it goes through to fly, to spread its wings and feel the wind,
and delight us so beautifully as we watch its dance.
Are you living your best life?
Are you carrying the baggage of what you have chosen to throw in there over time that no longer serves you?
Are you holding on to the stories and old news and find you still talk about it, still hold on to it?
Those who love you will say this to you…
Unpack those bags,
throw away what no longer fits for your life that you want,
break the tapes that continue to run wild and serve no real positive purpose in your life.
TAKE TODAY TO FLY
to create the joy you choose
Be a mentor to a person who benefits from your wisdom, your enthusiasm for life and joy;
Be one who keeps it real,
hold those you love accountable for their own actions in their lives.
STAND UP FOR YOU
for this is your life we are talking about, and life itself is so very fragile.
Look UP, Look Down, Look Around
at the magnificence in the world.
Many no longer are able to.
there will be others who stay in their own self-absorbed worlds, their own “meee meees” of doing, being and wanting.
we can only be responsible for US;
each of us is a beacon that shines brightly from within;
our God/dess within gives us all we need to be all and more than we are
we but breathe and choose
to reach out of self and look around us at the splendor of life.
and most recently I have seen the best of humanity in all ages with the outpouring of people from all over the world,
and yes amazingly I’ve been a part of a band of Guardian Angels on earth,
all surrounding and Standing for a young man 21
named Thomas O’Brien and his beloved Mom Debbie Koenig.
What just fills my senses
is his eyes, his gentle spirit
his fierce battle against Cancer
and his ability to be kind in the process to 5,000 plus in the process.
His videos of gratefulness, of thanks to so many; his posts on his page while so sick to thank everyone for loving him, for their prayers and to apologize for being too sick to post on the thousands of thoughts,
has astounded me and hit me where I live.
I keep reminding myself that he is only 21 years old.
I have to also face some facts that hurt my heart along the way in loving him.
HE IS NEAR DEATH
and yet so very loving and giving to so many;
while so many who I love are healthy and so very self absorbed that I never hear from them at all.
and the reality of that has never been more poignant
and has been a difficult but very needed lesson, perhaps a lesson from Thomas O’Brien himself to me, and his beautiful Mom Debbie.
While she is savoring each breath with her son; looking in those eyes, smelling him, touching him,
she has taken the time to send me a message or several, to touch base with me a stranger and I am honored by her and her son.
Their generosity and spirit to include so many people on this sacred journey has been a gift that will live in the hearts of so many for a lifetime.
It has been humbling, it has been heart wrenching, it is a tribute to a Mothers love of her son,
and a son who in a short life has lived his life with dignity, strength, and honor.
he has done so much in so short a time; he has been a teacher to thousands and in that teaching has given folks a rare opportunity to live their best lives here in this beautiful and remarkable place called Earth
and hopefully to leave a legacy as rich as the one Thomas is leaving.
He has made an impact that will certainly affect change in how people now view themselves
also how they will teach others how to treat them,
that is perhaps the greatest gift.
Once a person experiences such grace under fire,
such beauty under tremendous heartache,
somehow tolerance for less becomes more intolerant.
Thomas and his mom
have had a walk through my mind,
and they will remain in my heart. Care giving, care receiving, love that is eternal, life, loss, grief, such feelings and depth of understandings and tears that flow over time as we witness life in all its wonder, its fragility, its splendor as the Angels prepare to take a young man
to the heavens
where he will be free of pain, of prodding, of needles and angst.
His journey nearing an end here, as thousands have their arms around him, their fires joined in such abiding love for him and his family now
as we watch and wait for updates from his beloved Mother Debbie Koenig, her strength and grace touches and moves us deeply with each step.
WE Continue to stand
and the candles are lit.
I ask that you join me
in keeping the fire burning
May you grow from knowing this young man, from seeing his photograph,
from hearing his stories’ he is a warrior wrapped in an angels wings
use that for YOU
in making great choices in each step you make,
each dance you dance
LIVE WELL, LAUGH MUCH
We have this day
and oh so many choices to make
that are ours! We are standing all across the world
THOMAS O’BRIEN AND HIS BELOVED MOM DEBBIE KOENIG
out there in Texas,
wont you join us and
