Peace


An incredible feeling of peace came over me about 10 minutes ago. I don't know why it's there, but I welcome it. I hope it stays. Maybe I'm going to need it. I've only had this feeling a few times in my life. I feel that I can breathe deeply and freely and all of my worries have slipped away. It feels like a warm, loving hug, enveloping my whole body.

I don't know what my job will involve next year; things are up in the air here in SpEdLand. I've been worried about that. My boss is worried, so that worries me. I worry about my daughter and her upcoming surgery.

But for now, I'm at peace.

There is nothing that compares to that feeling of peace. People can tell you that things are going to be OK, or you can even see for yourself that they are OK, but it just isn't the same as having that feeling of peace come over you.

I love that feeling and I'm so glad that you have it now. When that happens, I call it my hug from Nana....somehow, that's what I always assume it is when that happens.

You know, the first thing I thought was "Nana." That's what it felt like.

Lunch at A Taste of Thai with the TMR class almost wiped it out, but it's still here.

Isn't it amazing the way the body, mind, and spirit can all come together in harmony at the same time? I think in our teen years, we called it a 'natural high'. Have a wonderful day my friend!!!

I still call it a natural high! But this is a really different feeling; it's like being infused with fresh oxygen, gently scented, that is comforting and reassuring, just like Nana has hugged us, or like you said, mind, body and spirit all come together at once. I don't think it's an earthly experience; there's definitely a Higher Power involved.

Whatever it was, I needed it and was very happy to have it.
