Having this strange time, due to Covid-19 quarantining, gives us the opportunity to reflect, and dream. 

My thoughts go to how important it is to love and forgive.  To love everyone, no matter what.  We may not like what some people do or think; some of their choices, but they are still God’s children.

I wonder who in my life I might have hurt in some way.  It is probably everyone who is or was in my life.  How do I ask for forgiveness when I don’t know what I may have said or done to hurt them?  Maybe it’s what I didn’t do or say.

Turning the tables, I wonder who I might have forgotten to forgive, even if only for a perceived hurt.  Thinking about that, how many of us have made bad choices in our lives and never realized how those choices my have had ripple affects in the lives of others.

Our thoughts, our words are powerful and can affect others even if we and they don’t realize it.

That is when we really need to lovingly forgive others, in our hearts, minds, and spirits.  Remember God forgives and loves us all.

Autumn Leaves – Greenville Falls Park

Autumn has always been my favorite season. One Autumn a few years ago was extra special.

The tree colors in the city where I lived were more glorious than I had seen them before.

More wonderful, special people had come into my life…even if briefly. My heart used to hurt so much, when people who came into my life, and I would have liked to keep them there, but they would go out again; not for any bad reason, just life.

As I think about these special souls who come in and out of my life, I realize something magical about some of them. They have had unstable or life-threatening sad beginnings to their lives. Yet they and God knew they needed to be in this world of ours. They are living proof of miracles, and strength, goodness and love. These souls create moments of magic in other people’s lives…they have in mine. I think of them as elusive Unicorns who pass through my life reminding me that I have a loving heart. And even though my heart breaks when they leave, I know another will come along to fill that empty space even for a little while.

Maybe it was that Autumn when I learned to be at peace with letting people come in and out of my life as they needed or wanted. This time of year seems to be a beautiful time for Letting Go, to allow myself to become A Blank Slate in order to allow for healing and new beginnings.

Another beautiful experience in my local hangout, Barnes and Noble.  I have been sitting here with earbuds in listening to beautiful music and reading.  Suddenly a little boy with blond hair came up to my table.  Cute as can be.  His mom smiled and walked him away.  I smiled at him.

Finally I had to go to the restroom.  When I came out and heading into the main part of the store I saw him and his mom again, several feet away, but facing me.  He started walking toward me.  I smiled and held my arms out. Immediately he held his arms out and ran into mine and let me pick him up!!!

What a joy.  His mom smiled.  He is 2 and a half years old with wispy blond hair.  His name is Brody.

Brody made my Heart Smile.  And now when I think of him my heart has the biggest, warmest smile.

Thank you Brody.  Heart Smile
