Today’s thoughts are simple, short and sweet. I have not felt well since late Thursday night and accomplishing daily tasks has been difficult. I walked back over to our house today at noon after working on miscellaneous farm projects to find ALL the rags I’d left in the dryer FOLDED by the girl’s sitter. Once again, we’ve struck gold with an amazing young woman who shares her heart with my little hearts. And not only that, she unexpectedly folded a basket of laundry for me on the most needed day.
Thanks Abby. You’re great. So glad you’re in our life!
Who do you need to thank today?
Published by Magdalene A.R. Mastin
Magdalene is a pursuer of all things beautiful, inviting others into a life with steady integration of all they say, think, act, eat, love, and enjoy--hopeful for a more centered, peaceful existence, both inside and out. Today, she offers spiritual direction, movement and yoga classes, and women’s retreats, incorporating contemplative Christian spiritual practices, contemporary and authentic movement, and the ancient way of yoga (with a fun side job of lifestyle and commercial photography). Past students and directees have joked that there are few others in the world as dedicated to boundaries, intentionality, rest, and weird voices as Maggie.
Magdalene grew up on a small organic sustainable farm in central Indiana, raised in a family of avid readers, generous doers, truth seekers, and good food lovers. Those early experiences laid a great foundation for further mind-body-soul integrative training at Hope College (BA in English and Arts Ministry), Fall Creek Abbey (Certified Spiritual Director), and BodyWorks Studio (200hr YTT).
If she’s doing exactly what she wants, you will probably find her on a porch, patio, or beach, drink in hand, dancing away or chatting about life and love and happiness with all her people, especially her partner Jeff and their three kiddos.

After folding four loads of laundry today (we have a potty-trainer in the house, so lots of tutus have pee-pee on them), I could go for an Abby in my life! However, I am very thankful for people who remind me to be thankful. 😉
P.S. Feeling any better?!?
