Today I love easy Saturdays like this one that got itself up and slid nicely onto the rails and started rolling all on its own into a pleasant sort of happening that I find quite comfortable. I love plans for loving forever. I love hanging out by the fireplace after returning from marketing and the craft sale and the Christmas tree stand store where we got the biggest Christmas tree stand we could find in anticipation of getting a small tree, ’cause I think that’s going to look pretty funky and fun. I love rolling through this day with all our plans and ideas, being fully aware that all the things we want to do cannot be done in any one day and so we will love this day for what it is and what it holds and not despair because it cannot be all days by itself. I love being happy and content with what I have, what I get from a day, and what I do with that combination; my life, living it, and sharing it with love … I need nothing more. I love how easy it is to talk with friends when I accept that they are the filling and seasoning of life.
Today I love that I was able to fall right back in to the swing of things at the curling rink and had such a fun time on the ice last night after a week off. I love that there is no way of knowing everything about any shot in advance and so I do what I always do when I throw a rock, try to be as accurate as possible and then take what comes of it and move on. I love that curling strategy changes as often as rocks are thrown. I love that game.
Today I love that things move forward always. I love that things I’ve been working on are coming together steadily. I love that I always choose words like steadily over slowly, tenacious over stubborn, quiet over dull, and when I do that I feel the subtle shift from uncomfortably negative to comfortingly positive. I love that words are such a huge part of my life, and though I clearly talk too much, it has been a long time since I’ve been told to be quiet, being an elder has its perks. I love that I am an elder at this stage in my life when I still feel like I am an eighteen year old.
Today I love drinking coffee in this steadily changing home where love has been scheduled to abide forever.
