Delights of the Day (for the week)


As I go through my day, I watch for moments when the corners of mouth turn up and my heart lifts. I note these moments of delight, capture them in my Journal and log them here. I encourage you to be on the lookout for your Delight of the Day.

This week I went to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts  to see the Sacred and Matisse shows. I had lunch with a few friends. All of us are dealing with disabilities. Peri and I came with power wheelchairs, Judith used a scooter, and Cynthia wore a button that identified her as someone with visual disabilities. We each have cognitive challenges as well. We worked together to achieve complex tasks like finding our way through the museum, writing checks, and manipulating silverware.

I was reminded simultaneously of how frail and how glorious we human beings can be.

Here are my delights for the week:

** My husband and I remembered our shared love of science while watching the show Cosmos.

** Rain and cleanliness encouraged me to rest, so I did.

** I painted for the first time in more than a week and enjoy the sound of raindrops on our metal awning.

** Meditated with the Guanyin statue at MIA.

** Wrote Survival Instructions.

** Had a tender meeting at church.

** Polished my monthly newsletter.

May you find delight every day.
