the promised and forgotten post

Ok! I didn't really forget that I said I would post after the weekend. I thought about it, and just didn't know what to say. Not that I didn't have a good weekend ~ I did! I loved every bit of it! Except the parts I don't remember. (That's another story). I couldn't focus. (what else is new?) I was reading other blogs and feeling quite inadequate about what I was going to write.

But I'm here now. And so I write........

The weekend in Vancouver actually turned out to be more of a weekend in White Rock. We spent most of our time with dear friends who left our small town this summer, to move to BC. We walked along the beach, gathered sea glass, went for coffee, enjoyed the rain (well, I did) , went for supper, drinks, some Jazz and more coffee. Overall it was a fabulous weekend. I didn't want to leave. "Can we not just send for our kids?" Alas, we had to come home. I'm already dreaming of the ocean and when I will be back.

 I found that I missed something else. I love people. I love strangers. I love passing people and wondering what their story is. Smiling at them, and hoping that my smile warms them just a little. I miss the variety. The orange and yellow and blue hair, with gigantic black heeled boots. The elderly, who clutch each other as they walk to their corner store in the big city. The children who walk with confidence and speed. And yes, even the down and out, who stand with their signs by the grocery store. I connect with their eyes. It moves me. I long to have all these things, including the water, in my daily life.

Today, I focus on today. Any requests, or desires I have, I know have already been answered. I need only wait. I need only to "let go, let God!" It's a daily message I need to remind myself of. My impatience is getting to me. This was on my news feed today on fb.

 I'm living that today! Tomorrow is another story! HA!
