U…

Some of the “U’s” I’m grateful for:

Universe – I love looking up at the stars and pondering what’s out there

Utah – the state of my birth, and so beautiful. Love the Rocky Mountains the surround Salt Lake City, love the desert, love it all.

Uncle – my mother’s brother. He’s been an important person in my life.

Urban – I used to live right in the heart of a major city – and I loved the urban life – walking along the lake, riding my bike, easy access to restaurants, parks, no car…it was wonderful when I was single, and newly married….but never lived there with kids.

USA – I do not display huge patriotism, but I am really grateful to have had the stroke of luck to be born in this country. It makes me wonder what I am meant to do with my life, what kind of pay it forward sort of thing for this luck? I’m working on it.

Under – as in that which we wear under…and in particular, lace.

Upside down – I used to be able to stand on my head – yoga style. Still can, but not as well.

About Terri C Pilarski

I am an Episcopal priest serving a delightfully progressive, interesting, creative congregation. I have been married more than half my life to the same man. We have two grown children, plus two dogs and two cats, although the number of four legged household members changes from time to time. I love to garden, knit, read, and play on Facebook or with my blog. I have been a practitioner of daily meditation since I was nineteen. I practice yoga five days a week and walk every where I am able too.

    Universe–that's a great one. I wasn't born in the US, but there are many things I appreciate about being here, even as I complain about a few others…
