I'm not quite sure where this is going. Sometimes just putting words to my thoughts helps me to process something that is on my mind. Yesterday, as I visited with a couple of friends, the same topic came up with both. It has caused me to ponder how quickly things change.
When I say my prayers during the day, I wonder when it changed for me. I'm embarrassed that those prayers so long ago were self centered and for things that seriously didn't matter in the big scheme of things. I now pray for my friends that are struggling, I pray for all the animals, birds, water critters, even the insects...... I pray for all the living plants, the heavens above and our Mother Earth. I wonder when I realized that we all need each other to survive another day. I am learning to be compassionate for all things that live. We are all on this earth together, trying to survive the changes. We all need each other to do this.
