With my mom’s passing yesterday…it just did not feel right to do the happy dance about my DoWoo accomplishment…so here goes!!
I have successfully written and posted 183 DoWoos in the same amount of days – and reached the 1/2 way mark of my stated intention: 365 blogs in 365 days! Woo hoo!
So what have you accomplished in the last 183 days?
I only ask this question to encourage you to consider how you are spending your time. I chose to concentrate my efforts on becoming a better observer and to lessen the amount of opinions I had – which were not doing me or anyone else any good. I took on a task which seemed a bit daunting but I reminded myself about eating an elephant (one bite/blog at a time).
I sent a link to my siblings today with the poem by Linda Ellis – The Dash. This made me recall reading Scroll V and the first time I was reading it through for the month. Mom had just been told her cancer was no longer in remission. I thought by reading “I will live this day as if it is my last.” would encourage her to embrace each day as the miracle it is. Unfortunately this is not what her reaction was – she asked me how long I’d belonged to the cult? LOL!
We just finished re-reading Scroll V during the month of February. Started shortly after Walter’s mom died and during my mom’s last weeks. Who said the universe arranges things for us?
We are now into Scroll VI “Today I will be the master of my emotions.” How true is that!? I am totally embracing that message today and doing my best – remaining calm – recognizing that everyone is doing the best they can with what they know.
With the realization I am technically now an orphan – I found myself looking at our son a bit differently today. He has only us. Walter and I need to make this count. And I can wholeheartedly state, we totally are!
