Long ass, hard, sad day. Found out a good old friend of mine has a malignant brain tumor. Feeling like every thing is so damn fragile. Knowing that folks are dealing with the loss of parents, the imminent loss of parents, the sadness of not being able to be with loved ones, of not being able to help. It feels like a lot today.
I am so grateful for my little life. For the simple "sacred mundane" things that made up my day today, even the 6:30am lineup at DMV to fix my expired license and get Calum a learners permit. Thankful for Willi and Chris making it possible to deliver a few forgotten paperwork items to us while we waited in line. Grateful for the support and love I needed today.
It was a long one and I need to go sleep...but I want to remind everyone that if you are interested in joining in the Meals on Heels fun this Friday, you have until tomorrow afternoon to place your order at https://www.toasttab.com/oasis/v3. We will be able to offer the extras directly once we know how many orders are coming in for that event.
Our regular menu for this week is below... Friday orders (SF delivery) should be placed by tomorrow night.
Take a moment tonight and find three things that you are grateful for... three simple, ordinary things. Things that define the life that you are living, the path you are treading. Things that maybe you overlook. Honor the "sacred mundane". I am grateful for everyone who reads my nightly posts and finds some comfort or resonance. I am grateful for those who reach out to commiserate or ask for reassurance, and for those who read and think about ways to take care of themselves in an intentional way. Today, I didn't do a very good job at that, but I will do my best to be kind to myself anyway. Please be kind to yourselves as well. Sending out all sorts of love, messages to the universe and hopes that we all can find some peace and love and hope out there. xoxo
