Friday Reflections


Every Friday, I reflect on the week that has just passed by doing a little sensory 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 the last week:
tasting ::  pan-roasted brussel sprouts, a falafel with pickled veggies slider and a cajun crab cake slider (food truck dinner for the win!), turkey sausage and kale with Great Northern beans soup, chicken and vegetable soup, smoked gouda macaroni and cheese, honey crisp apples and clementines by the handfuls, chocolate chip and banana bread 
hearing ::  Happy calling out his sight words as we practice, practice, practice
smelling ::  pots of soup on the stove and baking bread
seeing ::     sweet friends that I hadn’t seen in months for catch up meals complete with tears, laughter, and lots of truth.  Also, the look (and sound) of incredulity when Happy accidentally discovered his back-up Big Guy (our sweet friend Carly and her mommy treated Happy to the original Big Guy years ago and very thoughtfully also provided a back up Big Guy in case anything were to happen to the original).  Now, in addition to the rest of his stuffed animal menagerie, he’s got twins: Big Guy and Back Up Big Guy.  He kept saying, “why wouldn’t you tell me there was another Big Guy? I just don’t understand this.”Because if one is good, two is better evidently.       
feeling ::  this incredible fall weather.
wishing ::  that we all have lovely weekends that restore and inspire us and fill us with love.

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