Calming The Spirit... Are You Joyful Yet?


Mirror, mirror on the wall... whose the most keyed up one of them all???


It is crystal clear that I need a calming of the Spirit...


And keep my emotions from going sideways or needing to be scraped off the ceiling... *Smiles*


It is crystal clear that I must return to a place of Joyfulness and a position of Strength...


Of feeling more comfortable with the situation as it stands... but insist on changes... appropriate ones...


And make the calls necessary with diplomacy and sticking to the facts without becoming overly emotional... and the face to face meetings with Calmness...


Try not to look at what I'm facing with dread, despair or a defensive attitude... remain guarded... but Hopeful...


Take my seat at the Table with dignity...


And resist getting up on the Table with elevated emotion... *winks*


Just get comfortable and prepare to listen patiently...


To discern between Silver Tongue empty promises and deceptions...


And the cold, hard facts...


Resist putting up walls that will become even bigger barriers...


Don't dwell on the past and the dismal failures it held for the previous generation with unmet needs...


Keep that baggage from weighing you down...


Don't allow the fringe issues to distract from the big picture...


Keep Centered...


Have Faith...


LOTS of Faith... that everything will work out...


Even if right now it looks and feels misfit...


Not natural or growing...


But more surreal than you're comfortable with...


Like you've fallen down the Rabbit Hole...


And encountered a maze of obstacles...


And dead ends...


Rather than an open door to the desired destination...


So Gramma... is your Spirit Calm now and do you have a Peace???


Gramma, are you Joyful again yet???


Well... ARE YOU!!!!!!??????? *Winks*


Well... just in case...


We've got this on Standby... *LOL* Before the big Meeting today... where we all know there will be much resistance and a battle that must be waged... *Le Sigh*


But we stand ready... and determined... with pride, passion and Purpose...

IMPORTANT UPDATE: MY SPIRIT WAS CALM, EVERYTHING WENT WELL AND THAT IS SOMETHING TO DEFINITELY CELEBRATE AND BE JOYFUL ABOUT!!!

  1. Boy Dawn....looks like you have been reading my mail!! LOL Don't know what your battle is but I wish you luck with it. I have an ongoing battle with my adult children and their addictions and sometimes it can wear a girl down (O:. But, just like you, I keep putting one foot in front of another...and "keep on keepin..on".

    Hugs to you,
