I feel emotional about God today.

I am smack dab in the midst of a very busy day, with a reiki session this morning and a meeting with the president of the board of directors I am on this afternoon. Then kids. Then kitchen tools stuff. Then soccer practice, dinner, etc.

But in the lull, the moment of nothing, in the midst of the gap between busy things, I remember that I am head over heals in love with God.

Sometimes I feel a little bittersweet about the fact that I can share that with so few people in my life. If a friend (even a close one) were to ask how I was, or what I was up to, I would say all the things that I am up to, but probably wouldn't say that I was struggling with my prayer practice, or loving the liturgy each week, or dreaming of the day when I can pray the hours on retreat.

Which is where you, dear reader, come in. You, my friend, who reads this.

I thank God that there is someone I can share this with.
