I have been making little altars in my space since I was a little kid.
A gathering of items that bring me joy.
Things that represent me in the moment.
Bits and pieces I love.
On my computer desk, I have this little altar spot right in front of my eye.
There, I have a postcard made by Facebook friend with my life mantra on it.
I have a little clay piece my dear friend Kim made for me.
I have the amazing rock vase made by NH artist Lee Spiller that I gifted myself with.
And I have a sweet painted heart rock from my soul friend, Lynne Hoppe.
To these lovely bits, I occasionally add a rock of my own making.
This morning, I needed a rock.
I needed one to ground me.
I needed one to keep me filled up as I was feeling far too much on the empty side…
The rock I chose was “hope”.
I love that word.
I even love the shape of the letters that form it.
But this morning, it didn’t feel like enough.
So, I reached into my bag of rocks for another.
Guess what rock came to me ?
I guess today, I needed twice as much hope as usual.
So full of hope,
I will meet the new day.
I hope your day is a joy-filled one !
Big Love !
More joy sharing at Meri’s Musing.
