My weekend was filled with many small moments of ecstasy. I found my ecstasy in the simple things, like sleeping in on Saturday to compensate for a long, busy week. It was a luxury. A bike ride through downtown Milwaukee helped me stretch my legs – magnificent, wonderfully functioning legs that take me everywhere I want to go. A blessed hot shower each day to care for my body and televised football games were gifts to me. Teasing my son James was a highlight, especially because he so good-naturedly tolerated me even though he was dog-tired. I’m anticipating joy in my day tomorrow as I prepare to care for others and also be surrounded by co-creators who are magnificent at being caregivers.

I could go on and on but instead I prefer to wallow in the feeling of appreciation that’s awakened in me. It’s found me in the simplest things, the smallest moments, and it’s so filled me up that I can feel nothing but that.  I like it!

Enjoy,

Rick
