A Real Honest-to-Goodness Blog Post

It's as though, this past while, I've had too much to write!  Usually when I'm not blogging regularly it's because I'm unable to come up with a topic to write about.  These days I have an overflow of possibilities to blog about and find it incredibly difficult to choose.  It's been a whirlwind time with a Grandson being born(Dante Nicholas Fuller) and my novel being released and in the middle of all of that there is a trip to Newfoundland that starts tomorrow, driving all the way, non stop until Saturday morning when we finally arrive!

And yet, life is strangely calm. The kids are all free-range with school being out and I'm going to miss that when they go back to schedules but then I'll write more. 

There is a saying that goes Infinite patience brings immediate results.  This past while has been a lesson in that and putting that to practice daily has made so much difference.

When we decided on this trip we knew that there was a possibility that my brother's girlfriend's sister, who has terminal cancer might take a turn for the worse.  I talked to the kids about the possibility that we would be going later and I waited.  Proceeding as though we were going, but not knowing for sure.  I remained calm because this sadness in their lives, this difficult time, is a real problem.  Me not making a vacation trip is not a real problem.  So I let it be what it is.

I have also been waiting on an order of some copies of my books to take home for a book signing I'd planned in my home town.  I realised that the books might not arrive in time and had to let go of the idea that this would happen, though I looked forward to being able to share  my work first hand with my family and friends back home.

And I knew through all of this, that I could deal with either and be happy no matter how things happen.

Then this morning my brother called, the trip is set, everything is stable and we're going.  Then a few minutes ago, UPS came to the door with my books.  I'm happy.  But I would have been happy either way.

So now I get to pack.  I hear the ferries are delayed to Newfoundland.  But the island isn't going anywhere and I will make it at some point.  I could stress but what would that add to my life?  I will go.  I will enjoy the scenery along the way and I will be wherever I am 100%.

Infinite patience is what I practice and peace is the immediate result.
