The Right Place, The Right Time

There is no right time and right place for love… it can happen any time.

This week we had some serious storms. Rain, thunder, lightning all made their presence known here in Western Pennsylvania. For the first time ever, my family and I went down to the basement because of a tornado warning.

Thankfully, nothing happened. Just a heavy rain, so much rain in fact that it seems the grass and garden grew inches before our very eyes.

The day after the storm, our already fragile old apple tree gave way and a large branch split off. Already filled with young green apples, it was a sight of tangled twigs and green leaves. Jim and Gavin have begun the slow task of making fire logs and cleaning up the mess.

This morning as I was taking my trusty labrador Jordan out to the field, I caught sight of a baby fawn among those apple tree branches. She or he was just a few yards away from me. I hooked Jordan up to her run and walked slowly down to the felled tree.

The fawn perked its head up and looked at me. She still had her baby white spots. She was absolutely, perfectly beautiful.

I went back in the house and grabbed my coffee cup. I set up a chair in my yard and watched a deer family of four in the amazing morning light, prancing about and eating in my neighbor’s yard across the lane from our house, across from my apple tree. The baby fawn was among the family.

As I sat there sipping coffee and watching the deer family, I reflected. I thought about some key moments I had this week.

First, I spent an amazing couple of hours on the phone with a west coast blogger I have friended simply through my own blog. She is Sunday’s Child and if you click HERE, you will have a chance to read what she wrote about our phone conversation. It was so much fun! We talked about many things- writing, blogging, food, chickens- and just imagine, all through meeting in the magic of the internet. I feel like I have a new friend to add to my circle of old and dear friends, and I am blessed with her friendship beyond my own imaginable dreams.

Then, my good friend Cathy came over for a blog lesson. Yes another blogger has been born! As soon as she gets her first post up, I’ll share it with you. While she was here, I have to tell you about something awesome she shared with me.

20130708_161813When we were walking out to her car, as she was leaving, a baby hawk that has been flying around and screeching all week made its appearance just for Cathy. This baby loves to perch on a very tall pine tree behind our house. Cathy and I looked up and squinted our eyes in the afternoon sun just to catch a glimpse of baby hawk. I told her I think there are two of them, born recently and they are screeching to either mark their territory or they are calling their mama for lunch!

Cathy told me it is a very powerful spiritual sign to have hawks in your area. (Here’s what I said to this– Really??) So I looked it up on the internet and found she is right, yes, that many believe hawks to be a sign of power and vision. Check out the website I found HERE that gives more information about hawk totems.

Then, last night I was again among friends and I just happened to be in the right place at the right time. I can get choked up just thinking about it but suffice to say, someone needed a shoulder of caring and God put me in a bathroom at precisely the right time.

So between fawns, hawks and friends I have had an amazing week. I am truly blessed to be walking in this spiritual world and I cannot forget what a beautiful world it truly is.

Thank you to my daughter Michelene for the beautiful lily picture!

Anything amazing happen to you this week? Share please!

Join me on my graceful journey.

  1. Amazing? Not really. Nothing like yours. But my grand children amaze me daily!
    I have met some really amazing people on line and have actually met some in person! Don and I stood for 2 of them at their wedding! Most of these I met back in the Yahoo 360 blogging days. I can count 13 without much thinking, that we met in person! We stayed at the home of 2 when we went to Florida to surprise another at the grand opening of her flower and gift shop last November. I love that we can meet people from all over the world on the internet! I have a friend in England that I hope to meet someday!
    Have an awesome Sunday and another amazing week!

  2. Wish I could have been one of the friends that you connected with this week, but thanks for understanding the hectic reality of my life…sometimes it doesn’t feel like it belongs to me as I am always rearranging for my family. Herb’s aunt was moved from ICU to a step-down room yesterday and may get to go back to the nursing home Mon. It is my mother-in-law’s little sister so she is quite upset by it all and I seem to be her rock. I am glad to be there for her!! I feel blessed to have her as a mother and want to be there as much as I can. Stay in touch though….I miss you my dear childhood friend!

  3. Even though we’ve never talked on the phone, Joanne, you are among the dear ones I’ve met online. I love hearing about your blessed week. Thank you for sharing so much with us. (((Hugs)))

  4. Right place, right time, right week; may you be blessed with many more right times. Your rightful moments give me a rightful smile and a rightful moment of joy, too.

  5. Photos is truly gorgeous, and what a wonderful week you had. Life really is beautiful when we look for that. I am very grateful for all of my friends, and the opportunity for love that is always placed before us just at the right moment for all concerned.
