As I was rocking her to sleep the other night, her little hand trailed down and landed on her cozy warm blanket. Our hands were visually much different in size and stature. Mine a bit tan and weathered from the rays of the sun. Her's milky white and pristine from her recent arrival. She would occasionally wiggle around in my arms, but our hands stayed closely connected. Her angelic sleep was mesmerizing.
I stared in a fascinated trance as I envisioned all of the ways in which her life will touch others. As she lay dreaming, I found myself daydreaming of the endless possibilities for her life. I wondered how her hands would offer a tenderness to the world. How her touch might impact the lives of those both near and far. I envisioned her hands as instruments of connection. I imagined her tenacious spirit tackling her dreams. I saw her digging into life with hands open in a gesture of receiving. In the silence of her slumber, I found myself in a swaddle of gratitude for this sweet babe.
As I think of her presence in my life, I am reminded to connect back in with the enormous realm of possibilities. To be a dreamer. To truly touch life with joy and wonder. To open my hands to the inexhaustible grace of the Universe. To bring my palms together in gratitude for all of the blessings in my life. To always imagine and expect the best.
As you move throughout this day, throughout your week- how are you touching your own life? How is life leaving it's impression on you? Are you excited to reach out with arms outstretched? Can you feel the infinite nature of life expressing through you? Are your hands open to the continuous cycle of giving and receiving?
Today I bring my hands together in prayer, so grateful for this journey- for this path as I Sweetly Seek.
May you find blessings around every corner!
May you Sweetly Seek,
