For your consideration…..

Don’t you just love it? I do. I love when songs or animals or in this case insects show up. I love it because they not only provide a message but an example.

Today’s message is a little unusual in that a couple of messages are pointed out. Each is for all of us but in various degrees. When we talk about work, that may be the main part of the message for some. But when we talk about community and working with others that may be the stronger message for others.

Lets address work first. Ants are industrious. They are hard focused workers. They know their job and carry it out fastidiously. The questions for us may be. Are we working as hard as we should? Are we procrastinating? If so why? Are we doing the work we are supposed to be doing? Ants are architects. Are you the architect of your life? Are you doing the work you need for a strong foundation? Ants are patient with self and others. Are you taking the time you need to do things right? Are you getting and accepting the help you need? Ants teach us that patience, determination and belief in work and ability to accomplish it produces exponential success.

The second part of the message is about community. For the most part ants live harmoniously in community with each other. They share the work and the success of results. That is not to say that they can not work on their own and be just as industrious. They can. But within the community they know their place, the value of their contribution and the benefit of sharing it. It begs us to ask the question. Do we know our purpose? Do we understand our necessity? Do we realize how important it is for us to contribute and share who we are?

Ants today remind us that we have control. Success and rewards come through our own hard work and effort and our contribution to the good of all.

Yesterday we were asked to sort of put everything away and relax. Today, without stress, still chilling, we can start to look at our life with fresh eyes and open heart. Are we working on the right things? Are we doing what we know we should be doing? Are we focusing on what is really important for the good of self and others? Or are we letting distractions take over?

You get it. I know you do because if you are here today, you yourself are a light-worker. That is the HOPE. And so it is.


Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take……

-Meditate/pray. Take the time you need to relax and go within and listen to your core authentic self.

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths. But spend more time outdoors if you can. It is so important to get the perspective of self within the presence of Mother Earth.


-Read a book…..don’t feel bad if it is not a national best seller, spiritual, self-help etc. If a funny book or trashy romance novel will chill you out. Go for it.


What made me smile yesterday……

-Oh, AJ, my AJ, He is a totally together 8 year old.

-My Peanut, looking with such knowing eyes and heart.

-Finally, my Alex sounded happy again. Good attitude adjustment, Babycakes.

-A great birthday dinner with AJ and all the Gordons.

-A smooth trip to Stillwater.


Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
