It is the last week of Ordinary Time on the liturgical calendar and today we celebrated the Feast of Christ the King. I felt blessed by the celebration of the Eucharist and by the many encounters with people in my church family. I’ve carried thoughts of this connection throughout the day and I’m so grateful to begin a day with our Lord, in the truest of senses.
As well, I’ve been very connected with the weather…the sky…the beauty of the natural world that surrounds me. Every day I have at least an hour and a half outdoors with my border collie, Max. Some days, in terms of weather, are just better than others. This was a magical day.
What a weekend…but WAIT! That’s not all! I wanted to describe, even a titch, what a blessing my children…my friends…and my family are to me! Having just finished a roast beef dinner and sharing time at the feast table, I want to say how blessed I am every day by the love of others.
I am especially grateful for my dear cousin, Margy. I went hunting for a photograph of her and noticed one thing for certain…Margy isn’t wild about posting photos of herself. Most photographs will find her cuddling up with one of her grandchildren, her children or her Mom or Dad. Margy is selfless and I have to write here how grateful I am for her friendship, her advise and her kind spirit.
