More on Karma

Just got back from the MWJDS Pool Party at Clearbrook. Wow, I'm tired! Watching 3 kids, talking to my friends, and making nice with new and prospective families is a lot of work (especially when one kid is a very tired and argumentative toddler!). But we had a really lovely evening. It was so nice to see everyone.

And just as the party started (I got to the pool club 2 hours early, so I'd be able to swim, since I knew I wouldn't during the party), N called me back, and we had a very lovely conversation. I hope I helped her see the adventure.

And of course, several of my friends berated me for adding another worry to my own shoulders! So I'll try to back off.

I'd like to share a few quotes that we have posted on our mirror in our bedroom:

"We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us." (~Joseph Campbell~)

"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." (~Roald Dahl, The Minpins~)

"No doubt, the universe is unfolding exactly as it should."

And I want to send you all over the Nicole's blog, All 4 Gals, to read a most beautiful article she posted today, apropos to this topic.
