so... things have been a little messy over here lately.
many unanswered questions, frustrations and concerns.
as i sit with the "not knowing", i am trying to
remind myself of all i have to be grateful for.
i just took this picture right before i posted as a reminder ...
and realized there are pictures i could take around every single corner of things to be grateful for.
i also have been busy at the hospital volunteering in the
ART FOR HEALING program.
I feel beyond blessed to be a part of this ...
as i truly believe in all that it stands for.
it is putting SO many things into perspective for me.
It has me taking a closer look
at how I spend my time, just how much service work means,
and how we all just want to be
seen, heard, paid attention to.
I am learning this through the patients I visit
and the children I see in the surgery waiting rooms,
awaiting mom or dad to get out of surgery ...
seeing the smiles when I hand them
crayons and pages to color...
THEY ARE SEEN.
life gets messy sometimes ...
but i am learning that is when we have
to really pay attention to all the goodness that is around us ... change our focus a bit ... readjust the lenses.
it seems to me that sometimes
we need to embrace the messy
to appreciate the clean.
