So much to be thankful and joyful about in my world these days!
I am feeling so very blessed !
I swear I have said “Life is so good…” to myself with a deep sigh of satisfaction at least once a day for the last week.
All that in spite of having a naggy little cold, feeling a little physically run-down and the fact that I still have a good chunk of Christmas shopping, decorating and baking left to do.
Loving this mellow, joy-filled, life-loving mood !
The lovely little gifties just for me from my Canadian Chickies Christmas Swap is adding to the joy.
Today is Day 4 and our gift comes from Kathryn.
Look at this gorgeous little decorated matchbox necklace she made!
Inside had this little note to store a treasure within the box.
I love the color so much ! Especially against the red and green of Christmas !
It even looks great with the new periwinkle robe I bought for myself for Christmas from Land’s End !
Thank you so much, Kathryn, for this lovely little treasure and all the creativity and beauty you put into it. ! I really love it !
So yesterday, I had to make a trip to the post office.
Yes, about a week before Christmas.
The Rock Fairy had to make sure a few people got their orders of Rock My World rocks for Christmas gifties in time.
I had a feeling it was going to be a long wait in line so I prepared myself for that before heading out.
I had a fantasy about starting a flash mob of some Christmas Carol (it would never have been as good as this one !) in line to make the time more joyous…
While I didn’t have the guts to do that, I did bring a bag full of my Rock My World rocks and some candy canes with me and handed them out to people waiting in line around me,
to the very friendly post office employee who so kindly helped me out
and to the very last person in the line of about 40 people that were waiting behind me when I was leaving !
One lady who I connected with said in a very surprised tone “You are being so nice !?!”.
“T’is the season!” I replied.
But you know, her comment made me a little sad.
Even in this giving season, people are surprised by a little act of extra kindness !
It just shows how much the world needs more of it !
Kindness and joy spreaders will never be unemployed, that’s for sure !
And the payback for this kind of work is magnificent too !
Because whatever love you put out into the world,
comes back to you tenfold, Beautiful Ones !
It is an everyday miracle !
I think the rocks will come with me again today as I head for the mall…
Yikes, I have to go to the mall !!!!!
That’s okay though.
If I look for ways to connect to people and bring a little joy, the task will be a lot more fun !
And after all,
t’is the season, right ?
Spread some joy wherever you can too today, Beautiful Ones!
Big Love !
Head over to Meri's Musings for lots more joy today !
