I Got Up To Be With You

Having the same soul penetrating quality as "Proceed with a joyful heart and know that all will be well," had when said to me, this morning I was pulled out of sleep by a snippet of a dream that I can't recall. At all. Just woke to words...

I heard a slice of misty conversation, "I got up to be with you." And, I thought I must be dreaming about the need to get up in the early dark to visit with Michael before he leaves for his long, long day.

To visit with my husband who just got home from two grueling days of accompanying his Dad for medical testing. A wonderful man who is trying to keep his adult world balanced while feeling the fears of a child over his beloved parent. "I got up to be with you," I wanted to say, but I was still half asleep. And he was in a rush to get out the door. We had time only for a deep hug. No significant words shared...

Then, after his departure, I thought perhaps these words were meant for you. As I write this, I am aware how much I've come to enjoy our visits each day. I look forward to hearing what you are up to. I find your words and comments to be thrilling in every way. Even the things you think are just your run-of-the-mill, to me seem pretty important.

Thanks to this blog world of ours, I've met many talented people who are kind and generous. I continuously marvel over this myriad of creative folk, and how easily we can tap into this stream of creativity thanks to the Internet.

So, I thought I was saying, "I got up to be with you," to each of you. But that's not quite right either.

As I sit with my coffee watching the gray day break with falling rain, and listening to the birds, the real meaning of the words dawns on me. How they impact my worried fearful soul. They whisper to my anguished thoughts that circle around in my brain like a hamster on a wheel.

As I always say, it is all about me. All about me. About me. Me.

For, I realize that the words are for my sore ears; not really for Michael or you. It is Spirit. Reminding me in all things I am loved and never alone. Who whispered in my dream, "I got up to be with You."

Another every day miracle. I hear. I am grateful. And, I am blessed. I will keep faith and remember to, "Proceed with a joyful heart and know that all will be well." I wish the very same for you as your day unfolds.

Namaste' Till Next Time,

THAT is a dream to be cherished. Holy wow to the ZA! Very very cool. Loved the post about it, too; funny, isn't it? How we have to go through a circle and loop back, sometimes, to realize we're the intended recipient of the BEST? You can wear those words like a cape or a sash today ... keep you warm and held.

You know what, when I read I the title of today's post, my first thought was... for you to be with you. To take time to be at peace with the yourself. It's funny how sometimes what you really need you already have, you just have to remember it's there and dust it off once in awhile.

If I could give you one gift my friend, I would give you the ability to see yourself as others see you, so you would know how very special you are.
