“What’s the blessing here? Keep looking until you find it’s there.”
When in Eeyore days of the deep blues, a reminder to look for blessings makes me want to roll over and go to sleep. Or at the very least, roll my eyes.
Even in the barren “what’s the use?” desert, a stream of hope murmurs underground. Maybe it has something to do with my attendance at events featuring John Morton. He’s nicknamed The Blessings Man. And the acclaimed author of You Are the Blessings and The Blessings Already Are. (He’s also the Spiritual Director of the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness.)
I’m not doing cartwheels. Still, whilst lying supine on the couch, a willingness to consider that maybe Life has my back bubbles in my brain. Case in point, last Sunday; as salty tears dripped onto my husband’s shirt, I had an OMG moment.
Decades ago I was in despair because I was 31, divorced and kissing only frigging frogs. My heart felt like a dartboard. I was praying to God for a proposal from an abusive boyfriend. (#Crazy!) I thought it was the best I could do. Fantasies of being a step-mom made me linger too long, too. Breaking up with the person was brave. But it was a smart move.
I met Prince Charming in dance class after years of showing up at studios with no romantic outcomes. Today I am married to the man of my dreams and mommy to two furry cat babies. As my husband will confirm, I continue to dip into droopiness. Maybe though with a couple of more John Morton seminars I’ll see more Blessings Here and Now. To quote Eeyore, “Sure is a cheerful color. Guess I’ll have to get used to it.”
