Multitudes on Mondays ~ Spring Continued.... #112-134

    As the world continues to turn, and the sun rises and sets, I continue to give thanks for the ordinary everyday gifts in my life. My dear friend Mary Anne Fighera  (mentor, spiritual guide, joyful heart) recently reminded me of the importance of the people in my life. She likened them to a tapestry, and each life, each thread comes together and becomes a beautiful weaving. I love that imagery and am so very thankful for so many special people in my life. I hope that with the 1,000 gifts that I am chronicling, that I will give special attention to some of those brilliantly beautiful threads that shape the tapestry of my life....

     And, too, recognize that when they have died, that the tapestry is changed and transformed. How we miss those that have gone before us! Thanks be to God that I believe that they are but waiting to greet me again. Waiting with love. Waiting with my God. Isn't that a comforting thought?!
