The feeling of connection we get when we do something fun with people we love is one of our most powerful sources of happiness. ~Christine Carter
This week, between scattered list-crazed afternoons and doing one thing while thinking of another (or two), I’ve had small but significant pauses. Moments of catching myself and stopping, at least in my mind, to take a deep breath and remind myself what it’s all about.
What it’s all about is love. Showing it, sharing it, giving it, receiving it.
In those pauses I’m aware that my most wonderful moments are those of connection—with people, with nature, with spiritual awe. With the profound miracle that is being alive.
And, in those times when I remember this, even in the busy business, connection is possible. With the clerk helping me. With the rain drops beginning to fall. With the pocket of calm within just waiting for me to notice it.
