As I’m spending extra time celebrating with my family, today’s post is one of my favorites from the past.
Reaching Beyond…Gina’s Favorites
by Gina Valley

As we step in to a new year, may we all reach and stretch and strive beyond where we stand.

May we all reach for what can be and what we can be.

The Best Laid Plans

The Best Laid Plans
by Gina Valley

Sometimes the best things are the things you didn’t plan for.

Yesterday was set to be a nonstop, rush around try-to-do-everything-and-be-everywhere kind of day.  I had kids competing in 3 different sports tournaments in 3 different cities.  I’d had a doubly full week and still had a big pile to finish from it.

I made my schedule, stressing over only being able to see only part of each child’s tournament and needing to have perfect traffic conditions to do even that.

Peace

Trouble flown

Breath savored

Thoughts quell

Harmony sings

Hush spreads

Calm flows

Tranquil grace

Beautiful still

There’s something beautiful about quiet.

It’s a rare thing in my life.  Probably in yours, as well.  Even without children and spouses and pets,

I stand alone and wait for you

Always

You are there

Thoughts of you sustain my breath

I am because of you

Tears come

You heal my soul

Joy springs

My spirit soars

Behind me trails of your beauty

Before me your light

Within me truth of you grows smiling

Hope flows through me

Always you
