This week the grey and rain Seattle is known for rolled in for the season and I had to be at the hospital for a 5 hour medical test. As I woke up 2 hours earlier than normal and drove my car through the rain to yet another hospital, I began my own private pity party for myself. Yet, when I got to the check-in station, the reception person was wonderfully kind when I realized I had left my wallet at home. My tests had me waiting in a room next to the chapel so I was blessed to see a young girl of about 10 write her prayers on the slips provided and leave them in the basket on the altar. She had a beautiful serene smile on her face even though she was waiting for her sibling to come out of emergency treatment. And then as I left I was greeted with the most amazing fall display of maple leaves and mosses that was such a gift of the natural area of Seattle. I am grateful for these moments of beauty that adjusted my internal attitude and reminding me to be grateful.
