1. I am grateful that I was able to make it to lunch with the Gov, Huntress and Cheese. We had entrecote and chips and a bottle of wine in honour of Bastille day :)
2. I am grateful that the Guv treated me to a cake, which I took home and had with a cup of tea in the afternoon.
3. I am grateful that I didn't have to be anywhere in the afternoon. After going to the grocery store, it became apparent that I am exhausted from being sick. I was able to come home and rest and sleep.
Joy - It was a joy to discover two new-to-me musicians from France. One was posted by a friend, MB on Facebook and the other I found because I recognized his French hit. I posted them for Bastille Day on Facebook too.
Oneness - I chatted with CM today and it was good to see that we were of the same mind on something. I thought that perhaps I was in the wrong in my thinking because others seemed so convinced of the opposite. Perhaps I was seeing the worst in the situation. But CM is one of the lightest beings I know and if he saw it the same way that I did, it was not a negative predisposition at work - it was simply seeing the negative in someone where others refused to do so. Love makes us blind. I know this. I wish I could circumvent that but it is the nature of being 'in love' - it makes us see everything as wonderful and to ignore the negative even when we see it. Being in love is a kind of madness. As much as I have wanted to be free of a particular relationship that is too one-way for me, it feels a little sad to be free of that madness. But, at least in that, I felt oneness with CM.
Service - The good news (but not great news) is that my sister's condition is unchanged. The bad news is that it hasn't improved overnight. So, I continue to pray and send healing and ask that you also keep Mary in your prayers.
