The Perfect Time to Play


Dear Ultimate Consciousness

The other day, during our angel card reading practice night, a friend told me that I needed to stop and smell the flowers. I know I have been working very hard lately and trying to work my way through the pile of things before me. It has felt like there was one deadline after another and I was sitting here thinking I need to just stop and play for a while today. My friend Kerry asked me when I crocheted last and to be honest, I could not remember. How sad. I have books I could read, but by the time I stop, I am too tired to read. So I knew that I needed to claim the time this weekend to play. I had told myself I just wanted to do two more things for sure today: take time to journal (which I am doing now) and finish my piece on forgiveness for the newsletter, as it is the last thing I have to give Zoe for the newsletter which she will be finishing tomorrow.

As I was sitting here holding my new stones, inspired by their energy, their colors and something which almost feels playful about them, I felt inspired to draw an angel card for myself. So here I am shuffling the cards, infusing my energy into them, when two cards literally jumped out of the deck at me. I wish I could say it surprises me when this happens, but it no longer does. It has happened so many times, I am used to you going these ones here! Pick these!

So the two cards I pulled from my deck are perfect timing and play! So I guess this is about clear a message as you can possibly give me. So I am just writing this to say thank you for telling me to go stop and play. So I am just going to say thanks, and then I am going to take a break, go for a roll around the block, curl up in my rocker and crochet and read and maybe call a few friends.

My piece on forgiveness can wait until later. Right now, it is the perfect time for me to stop and play. I am sure Zoe will forgive me if I do not give it to her until later tonight and I know I will forgive myself for not getting it done first. Yup! It is the perfect time to play.
