A Gift

The universe knows when you need a gift......instead of taking it easy yesterday, I went to work.
Big mistake, since I had done my treatment on Wednesday.  I hit the wall last night, and hit the sofa all day today until it was time to play our gig this evening.  It was a great gig, a street festival, perfect time, 6:00pm to 7:00pm and the weather was made to order.....clear blue skies,
gentle breeze, 70 degrees.

After the show, I was wiped out....we had planned to eat out, but I looked at Rick and begged to go home. As we were driving down Hwy. 78 East, leaving Jasper,  I first I thought what a beautiful clever sign......and then it hit me......the full moon!  You all know I am infatuated by the full moon, moon struck if you will.  This one tonight was one of the most beautiful I have seen in years.  A pale soft gold, the color of hay, hanging right over the tree tops shinning down in all its golden splendor.

I called Jordan, he loves the moon as much as I do.  He was visiting family friends near Montgomery and they have clouds tonight.  In a few minutes my phone rang......I could hear his sweet little voice......"it's coming from behind the clouds, I can see it".  What a treat to share the moon with him.

That moon, that golden orb of shimmer was such a gift tonight.  I needed it's beauty, I needed to know that all was right with the universe.....I needed the assurance and gift of a full moon.
The full moon is a talisman for me and tonight.....I know, everything is as it should be.
No matter where you are tonight, the city, the mountains, the desert, where ever you are.....
I hope you see the beauty, the perfection of that big golden is a gift to us all.


  1. This is so perfect because as I was coming home from a quick run to the store, I looked up and was amazed at the size of that moon! I've never seen it so huge and I could almost reach out and touch it. I almost pulled over to try and snap a quick pic but knew that it wouldn't look as cool as the real thing. Glad you had the same moon!

  2. You are amazing! I did see the moon this evening while driving with my daughter. It was beautiful!
    Here's to a better day...

  3. I wish I could have seen that moon. I love that you called Jordan.

  4. Things are always so much better shared.
