Very busy week just passed. Learned new things. like the meaning of metanoia. It is a spiritual transition. Also found a new author to me in church this morning. Kristain Neff. Just wrote a book called Self-Compasion. It will be out in April. I looked it up on Google. She covers a lot of territory I am interested in for a lot of reasons. She has an austic child, she is knowledgeable in inner work on compassion for self and others, she practices Budism and teaches mindfulness and she is so young. Well, young to me that is.
I met a woman at work who was so inspirational. She was ill and in a lot of pain but always had a smile and a kind word for whoever came into her room. Other patients would go into her room to visit with her. She said her purpose is to bring the joy of the love of God to all who came into her path. She was a joy. I went to work yesterday and noticed her name gone from her door. I thought she had gone home. She had gone suddenly home to heaven. I felt sad at first then remembering her smile and joy all the time I was happy for her quick trip to heaven.
Went to the wedding of the Little Guys` dad. It was so fun. Little Guy is now 3 years old and cute as the dickens. He wanted me to take a picture of his shiny shoes. Glad his daddy is now a happy guy with a beartiful loving young woman at his side. Life is good
