To choose the best gifts I’ve received in my life would be impossible because there are so many of them. From the cats that kept me sane, through the mentors and random people that changed my life, even those who didn’t know it, to the spirituality that’s informed everything I do for nearly 40 years, it’s all incredible.
Then we have sunrise (which I’ve seen very few of as I’m a night owl), to the thousands of beautiful sunsets. The moon waxing and waning as it journeys through the sky. The gentle beauty of England, the breathtaking magnificence of Wales and Scotland, coupled with the South Island of New Zealand (wow!), sadly I missed the best parts of the North Island as mine was a meet the in-laws trip.
Then there was Sedona in Arizona, the Grand Canyon, followed by Orlando in Floria. Visiting my uncle’s home in St Petersburg FL., years after he died but fulfilling a promise to him that I would visit him. Might sound daft, but I always wanted to know where he lived.
He was a lifelong bachelor who didn’t understand children, and stunned his brother by coming home and telling him he’d met the most wonderful 3 year old. Not many people in my life have warmed to me like that incredible, kind man, did. He was a great light in my life.
Now I have the support of incredible spiritual guides, of which Amos is front and centre. To me this relationship is as real as any human one, except that humans can’t perform those kind of miracles, and it’s the saving grace of my life.
But to cycle back in a blog that I’m thrilled to say could go on for a very long time, and even though my husband has bought me some truly amazingly thoughtful gifts in his time, it’s been the cats, the pets of my childhood, some people, the sun, the moon, being alive on this incredible planet, and my connection to spirit, that have been the greatest gifts I could ever have asked for.
My husband is a whole other story, and when I’m on my computer I will cheer up anyone thinking they’ll never meet ‘the one’ by the story of how we met. Then I’ll follow it with the even more romantic story of my parents. Yep, I need to add a miracles section to this blog.
To your happiness and too many great gifts to mention
