Help Is On The Way

“Crystallize your goals. Make a plan for achieving them and set yourself a deadline. Then, with supreme confidence, determination and disregard for obstacles and other people’s criticisms, carry out your plan.”  Paul Meyer

This week of Tiferet (the third week of the count) is our time to create a plan for change. There is a beautiful Jewish teaching about the plans we make (not that God laughs although my guess is that is also a Jewish teaching). A slight variation is: “The one who comes to change, help is on the way.”

One of the changes I have set for my counting is the new family photograph. Photographs are a still picture that capture a moment in time—but the new family is an ever evolving idea that finds itself manifesting in different ways. One such manifestation was a suggestion that we take a family vacation—all seven of us. We looked at dates to consider, agreed on a possible time in June and then chose the place. We would head up to the mountains and spend a few days in Glenwood Springs with the hot springs pool as our relaxation centerpoint.

Five minutes later friends came over to visit. In the midst of casual conversation they asked whether we would like to use their mountain home for a getaway this summer.  Without any knowledge of our family discussion they described their house as, “only 15 minutes from Glenwood hot springs.”

When you are ready to leap in the water, a pool will show up.
