Ramblings of a World Traveler,
Yesterday was a bit magical. I drew the essence card of Celebrate. Hmmmm?
It was scheduled to be a relaxing day. I wasn't in the mood to celebrate, but my day had other plans. I decided to wear sparkling earrings to get me in the mood.
Attending my Artist Way class at 11 a.m., I was greeted by the usual hugs and welcoming greetings. The hugs seemed tighter and greetings more heart felt.
A painting I had commissioned was delivered and it was incredibly beautiful. We all celebrated my acquisition and the talent of the artist, who we all consider a personal friend. Then, we had a lively Skype chat with a classmate, who joins us from Italy. She had sent little remembrances to us from her visit to Morocco. We literally squealed with delight at our tiny colorful spoon. We tried to hang them from our noses, pretended they were Harry Potter wands, and high-fived each other by touching all the spoons together in the center of the table. Incredible joy filled the whole room. Later, I arranged for a framing of a picture from one of the artists in our group as a gift for a long time friend.
My second meeting of the day was my Dementia Caregiver Support Group. I hadn't been able to attend for some time, but just being able to suggest a plan of action for a new caregiver was a gift from me to her.
Reflect on the little gifts.... There's a Celebration going on!
