This morning, I emailed a woman I know, whose husband is having a quadruple bypass (possible quintuple - I didn't even know that existed - tomorrow). I let her know I'd been thinking about both of them and would be holding them in my thoughts (in general, the word "prayer" doesn't go over well with them, though I think right now, any and all kinds of thoughts/energy/light/prayer/juju are welcome).
This afternoon, I left a quarter on a wall for someone to find, and another on a bus stop bench. Part of me thinks I shouldn't be giving any money, and another part of me believes it's more important than ever - not the amount, but the act itself.
This evening, I finally (!!) got around to sending a thank-you e-card to my next door neighbour, for the Thanksgiving dinner. I'd wanted to give her a little trinket of some kind, but I have nothing around the house that she might like (I've de-cluttered by giving all those little things away as gifts). I hope she'll forgive me for being two weeks late with it...
Today wasn't stellar emotionally. I felt really stuck creatively, and kind of panicky about being stuck. Normally, I know to take a break at that point, and eventually, I did. Hunger also really, really affects my intellectual and creative ability, and it makes it harder for me to keep anything in perspective. The lower my blood sugar, the grumpier I become. I'm not sure why I'm so hungry lately - in the summer, I wasn't eating much (regardless of money), but in the past week, I've been ravenous! (Kind of bad timing - LOL). We don't have "corner stores" here, so I had to wait until I could get to the grocery store, which wasn't till late afternoon. But I got some chicken, and tonight, I ate pretty well. I am grateful for that.
I focused on looking for abundance everywhere today - all the leaves on the ground, all the trees in the nearby forests, all the masts on all the boats at the marina... and all the grey in the sky :/ Amazingly, though, that technique does help get my mind out of the "lack" space.
Hope you all had good Sundays. Cheers!
