Today commemorates the birth date of a modern day martyr, Dr. Martin Luther King. I am forever grateful to Dr. King as I remember the way he attempted to impact people who have long killed the messenger without trying to understand the message. This most special day remembers the birth of the man who dedicated his entire life promoting a message of equality, truth and fairness. Let each of us today promote peace in our own way. One of the ways we can do that is to invite peace into our lives, starting with what should be a most peaceful sanctuary, the bedroom. Using any shade of blue or green in that space is believed to heal both the spirit and the soul. From the paint on the walls to the accessories all around, try a splash of blue. And then go green. Heal you. Heal the planet. In honor of someone who tried to do exactly that. Happy birthday, Dr. King. I share your dream.

The Birthday of the Light
On the Christmas morning comics page
Two people slogging through the crowds of shoppers
pause to ask one another
“Isn’t this all supposed to be somebody’s birthday?”
Yes, it is.
This is the birthday of the Light.
Different people see the Light differently;
To many the Light is a babe in a manger,
A child destined to grow into a great teacher and healer,
Bringing the light of love to a world lost in darkness.
To others the light is the light of freedom,
Seen in the miracle of a lamp burning
Far longer than its meager supply of oil should have lasted
After the conquerors were driven from the Temple.
And still others celebrate winter sunlight
Bringing the primise of springtime
And reminding us to look at endings
As opportunities for new beginnings.
But even though we see the light differently
And hold different days in this season sacred to it,
Let us all look into the light together
To see opportunities for new beginnings
For a world of freedom and healing and love.

Goooood Saturday Morning, dearies! How are you doing this morning? Me? Much, much better! I feel like a bird that has been sprung from a cage. I know the people around me have great intentions. But damn, I was getting to feel smothered. Don’t do this, don’t do that, sit down, you can’t walk that far. I was getting ready to ask permission to go to the bathroom, lol!
Yesterday, I told them I was extremely grateful for everything they had done for me. But it was time, we all get back to normal. I know when I overdo and I will stop and sit down. Please leave me alone and let me get back up on my feet. I thought there for a moment they were going to spoon feed me, gee! When I get back to 100% I plan on throwing them a thank you party. I figure it is the least I can do. They all have been super and you couldn’t ask for a better bunch of friends.
I also have to thank you for having patience with us. It seems like everything has gotten screwed up and you hung in there with us. You are a super bunch of friends also. Anyone else would have said, “the heck with them. I’m going some place else.” But you didn’t. You had faith in us. Thank you for that. I know I have said it a thousand times but I feel I owe the entire world a great big hug and kiss. So here goes………..
