Fifty-two Words

Fifty-two words guide my week. Much like the Word of the Week some schools post on their outdoor signs.

My words are neutral but wise reminders: Diligence, Responsibility, Patience, Compassion are but a few.

I print out a page of these words, cut them up into singles, put them in a basket and then draw one out for a part of my morning meditations and contemplations.

Sometimes I include the sheet of these words with a card or a letter to a beloved. It is a simple thing. When I first sent it with a Get Well Card, and a note about why I sent it I got a special response to how important and meaningful it was to the recipient.

Many of my life lessons have shown me this life truth: Thoughts are like seeds on barren ground-rattling around in nothingness. Until we nourish their possibility with our breath and we stir the soil to action with the vibration of our voice.
