Sometimes, I find myself reflecting on my experiences and a smile spreads across my face... and a “well, what do yah know” rolls from my lips. Most recently I've found myself reflecting more on past family moments.
A real mixed bag of course but I suppose it’s that time of year.
I wonder and wander about my thoughts of the what and whys... Take the way my dad would always cut away and eat the "gross" (bruised/ over ripened) parts of fruit while offering up the "good parts" to my brother and I. Or how different my parents were, one being rather stoic and reserved while the other a best friend of many. Shit, even thinking how my parents would muster up energy to give themselves wholly to providing love, joy and care to us after a full day of fuckery.... maaaannn, I currently can’t manage enough energy to brush my own hair!
These little moments, I'm sure, were never given a second thought but these days I find myself recreating them. I find myself giving my favorite parts of food, love and energy to my family, my love, my friends and without a second thought strangers.
I wish everyone to see the blessings they have been given. Big or small, *
So, today I’m saying thank you to my family and to those loving souls who added to my path. No matter how imperfect or small the exchange may have been... it made me. It added to me and I am forever thankful. *
The lives we live are conceived and birthed from love, sacrifices and all else in between and it feels natural, so right inside, and often carried out without reflecting on the significance. I have come to the conclusion life is too short and we should share love to those important to us, smile, be thankful, and repeat.
