So, guess what?
I have been blessed.
I am (in part) a litigation attorney.
Today, I need to work, despite my preference to go out and place bread and apples among the trees, my offering to nature on Good Friday.
So be it, I will find time later.
In the midst of working, I need a favor, some documents e-mailed. The other attorney has her assistant respond. She responds professionally and quickly on this day that many offices and the Courts are closed.
She signed her e-mail, the salutation, “Peace & Blessings”.
Oh yes, God spoke to me today.
How exciting to see such a sign off in the litigation world.
I responded of course: Namaste.
I have been blessed today and I offer it up to all of you, we can crawl from beneath the rocks and send peace and blessings in our everyday and our otherwise work/professional communities.
I said to my husband the above.
He said, and what would you have done if she said: Praise be to Allah?
I said: God has many names.
He reminded me of a conversation he had with a taxi driver, sometime ago, when he was discussing faith and religion and said:
“God is good in every language”.
Now you must know, this morning in my head, in between the spaces of law, I have been writing a piece (in my head) on the Divine and foreign languages.
Blessings in Abundance!
