On this day, thirty years ago, I woke my stepbrother Allan up for school. It was like pulling teeth – he did not want to get up.
Little did I know it would be the last time I’d wake him up.
For years I wished I had just let him sleep the entire day until the evening. Then he never would have left the house. He never would have gone to work. He never would have driven home. And he never would have lost control of his car while turning onto our street…
For some reason, thirty years is hitting me harder than it usually does.
Today I Am grateful for sharing another morning with the boys, and for the music we share with each other in the car – like the music I shared today that always reminds me of Allan.
I Am also grateful for my brilliant 7-year-old, who had the insight to suggest we watch funny videos on YouTube while we waited for me to drop him off when he could tell I needed to laugh.
I Am grateful as well for all of the people who supported me and my family all those years ago.
I Am grateful further for all of the people who supported me today on social media – including many who never got to meet Allan.
Finally I Am grateful for the lessons I am able to remember – and pass on to my boys: Cherish everyone in your life. Never take anyone for granted. Always tell them that you love them, because you might not get another chance.
And since you’re reading this, you need to know that I Am grateful for you.
And I love you.
I Am grateful for NOW, the only moment there is, metaphysically speaking, knowing everything I could possibly want is in existence NOW and is in my grasp NOW. In respect to this physical plane in which we use “clock time” to measure the Eternal Now, I Am looking forward to an amazing tomorrow, filled with love and joy, prosperity and abundance, creation and completion, new possibilities and new realities. I anticipate ending the day in complete satisfaction, knowing that only good comes to me, always. It is going to be the best day of my life, and I Am grateful for tomorrow today!
And So It Is.
