Your Are Now Leaving the Past and Entering the Future: Happy September Equinox!

In the past six months, I've changed emotionally. Well.. in the past year and six months, actually.  Mydaughter first brought it to my attention.. She came home on break from college recently, and told me... "Mom, you've changed."  This wasn't the first time she's said this to me.  The first time was when I tooka job that entailed a forty mile-a-day, commute.  She was in middle school at the time, and her life was in and of itself - without me in it, tumultuous.  When she got home, I wasn't there. And she needed me more at that time than she did as a toddler.  We worked it out two years later with a corporate merger layoff. 
Recently, though, pursuant to her graduation from college, and my graduation to an empty nest, other peoples' perceptions and expectations of me, no longer matter.  Not my mother's.  Not my brother's.  Not my grandmother's.  And to a certain extent, not my daughter's.  No  menopausal melon here, but a prima goddess …

Paycheck 911

I first came across this beautiful Prosperity Prayer somewhere online, or at a gathering of friends at Unity or a ACIM study group, shortly after September 11th.  I'd relocated my daughter and I to Atlanta to be emotional and financial support for a recently divorced friend.. who got the mansion in her settlement. After the unthinkable happened, no one was hiring, and I started worrying.  Eventually, unemployment benefits came, but not before my friends' greater fears took over her faith and common sense, and she asked us to leave just before my daughter's planned 8th birthday party.  I didn't have HALF her mortgage payment, which I hadn't agreed to pay.. and I wouldn't have wanted to pay that much to have a roommate, even if I had it!  But a day after we were out of her house, I received back pay and then some...
Pray this prayer to replace your worries about money with faith.. It works.

September 11th: An Incidental Memory

Hard to believe it's been 15 years since something faithfully changed our souls and our minds --and our sense of security and confidence, in what it means to be an American.  Everybody's got a story about where they were as the day unfolded.. Including me. But this is not it.  
This is a recollection from about two months later...
Half a year before terrorists crashed jetliners into New York's World Trade Center, two men identified as among the hijackers rented a single engine plane and took practice flights at a small suburban Atlanta airport. I'd relocated to Atlanta in August 2001 to live with a friend who got the grand house in her divorce settlement. In November 2001, I paid a deposit on a bungalow in that small suburban Atlanta community, then found out before the ink was dry on my lease - that the hijackers had lived in that very house, and FBI had not long finished their rounds through the place. Hearing this from the owner herself, I asked for my deposit back…
