Friday Reflections


Every Friday, I reflect on the week that has just passed by doing a little senses exercise.  This practice is a gentle, easy way to tune into how we are doing, what we are experiencing, and what we are grateful for while more acutely tuning into our senses.  It’s a whole heart exercise with plenty of bodily input, if you will.  Because this practice has been so good for me, I want to encourage you to do it, too.  Building some gentle reflection into our weeks is a nice way to stay grounded while maintaining some big picture perspective.  So please join me in this week’s Friday Reflections (with each sense as your inspiration, consider how experiencing it impacted your week).

Here is my sensory round-up for this week:
tasting ::  lemon squares, lemonade and key lime cookies at our lemonade stand fundraiser last weekend for a local nonprofit that provides computers to families who do no have them in their home, garden vegetable soup, hummus, chicken salad sandwich, grilled corn, and sushi

hearing ::  lots of songs sung by the sweetest of voices as there were all sorts of closing events at preschool this week and the end of two books on tape as I took a solo day trip to South Carolina to spend time with my parents

smelling ::  honeysuckle on my morning runs


seeing ::  butterflies being released by the preschoolers as part of their study of insects (they shepherded caterpillars to the butterfly stage), Happy dancing his tush off as he prepares for a performance in Alice in Wonderland this weekend, Happy’s sweet little transitional kindergarten class “graduate”

feeling ::  very aware of the transition that is coming for my little family

wishing/hoping ::  for a wonderful summer filled with good things that fill our wells, connect us further, and bring us joy

What about you?  What were your sensational experiences this week?  Please share!
