Good Morning, God!
The house is quiet. Everyone is sleeping. Except, of course, me, God. I have checked in to my flight that leaves at 1:00 pm this afternoon. And I have only a few more things to pack. I have had a wonderful time! I have been welcomed and loved and invited in — into the Fullness of Family. A Blessing!
The thing about longer visits is that the Visitor slowly gets absorbed into the reality of the Visited. And this Alternate Reality differs in Pace as well as in Place. I became aware of this yesterday, God.
I saw it as my Last Full Day and I wanted to make good use of it. Several times during the day I fell into doing — not being. This got my “pace” off. And so there were a few — very minor — “collisions” until I geared down my pace.
As Ian put it so well — he felt “pushed.” Yes, God, I do know that no one likes to be pushed. And I AM Pushy! I know this about myself. And, to be honest, God, I don’t want to lose that quality . . . but I do want to control it better.
Visitors need to match the pace of the place. And even Mothers and Grandmothers are at the same time visitors who need to respect the pace of each place visited. At Suzy’s I went a bit faster than usual. At Sandy’s I have had to go a bit slower at times. Both have been good “exercises” for me.
My Heart is Full of Love. I am so very Thankful! And now I go on to home. And I am thankful for that too.
