On Being Between — Honolulu and Boston

The beautiful Between: Concourse B & C at OHare

Good Whenever, God!

I am HAPPILY still IN BETWEEN Honolulu and Boston — My Body is in Boston — and it is slowly “gathering” the rest of me.

This is a NEW experience, God. Normally, I “Soldier On” following along in Kit’s wake. But, Kit marches — or runs — to a Different Drummer.

Right now, My Body isn’t marching. It is in BED where it is apparently determined to stay.

Kit, has now eaten at the California Pizza Kitchen down the road and is IN THE EXPO — in his element!

There is a lot to be said for listening to one’s own body, God. I might even say, HONORING one’s body.  I shall be a much more cheerful companion after yet another nap — or maybe just a good rest.

But, this is about more than just Rest, God. This is about self-respect. It is about my Conscious Mind actually Hearing and Respecting the needs of my Body. Hmm. I am pretty sure my Body is going to be a more Cheerful Companion for me if I continue to Hear Her.

Please, God, don’t let me forget this lesson! I am so eager to please Kit that I overlook caring for myself. Oops! Let me restate that! I am so happy to please OTHERS that I forget that I have responsibilities toward myself.

I suppose my attitude is part of being a Woman and part of coming from a Dutiful Warrior Culture.  Actually, I admire both cultures. I just want Your Help, God, to re-establish a Better Balance!

Story teller,
