It’s All Small Stuff

So I am sitting in the great room reflecting on the greater issues of life and I hear a quiet knock on my kitchen door. It is my neighbor. He says, “I notice you have some fire ants in your yard. I am just out treating mine and if you like, I can treat yours, too.”

“Please do,” I said. “I’ve seen them, but don’t have anything to treat them with, so thank you!” And I was grateful.

When I went to the bazaar today, I also saw a license plate that said: SOW SEEDS OF LOVE.

It is very cool what happens and what you notice when you let go.

The tao is always treating us just as we treat it. It’s up to us to flow in agreement with it.

I was looking for a shirt that buttons down the front, as I am having cataract surgery in a few weeks. I couldn’t find one I liked. At some point, I quit buying that kind of top. I much prefer putting them on over my head. So I went to my closet and picked out a top with an extra big opening at the top because it has a hoodie on it. I will wear that one instead of following the surgery rules and wearing one that opens in front.

The biggest worry I have is about putting eyedrops in. I have never been good at that. So I Google up how to do it and practice with some eye drops for dry eyes. The prescription ones are pricey and I don’t want to waste them and I want them to do what they are supposed to do.

After the surgery I may or may not have to wear glasses to read. I have been wearing them for so long that I find I don’t want to give them up. I may keep on wearing them with just a light prescription.

A beautiful young woman the next street over is dying of ovarian cancer. There are lots of cars in front of her house. We seldom see death up close and personal. It is prettied up. I know better. Agony is happening as someone dear passes from this earth plane. All I can do is send light and prayer and try to stop sweating the small stuff. And it’s all small stuff.

  1. You are going to ace this surgery. I have one coming up for my right eye in July. The left was done some years ago. Eye drops are my life now due to a different issue. (Glaucoma in the left eye.) I just wanted you to know I hear you and am sending lots of love.
