“We find happiness where we can. And that is everywhere.”
The Universe sent me this smile gift in the form of a food face last night.
Do you notice little gifts from the Universe?
Like food faces,
or maybe a tune that the dishwasher brings into your head for you to hum along with ?
(Yes, I do need to get out more. Some of my Blogland friends do too! You know who you are !)
they are harder to see
than the bright shiny gifts that friends give us.
Like this glorious print that arrived in the mail yesterday from my loving friend, Sherry.
The piece is by artist and wise woman, Julia Fehrenbacher
and goes along with this incredible post she wrote last week on the Painted Path.
At a time when I have been struggling with loving myself just as I am, right in this moment,
and making each day feel of value to my life,
Julia’s words are like a friend reaching out in the darkness.
Just like my friend Sherry does!
Thank you to both of you for making me feel seen, and loved,
and most of all,
thank you for inspiring me to see and love my blessedly imperfect self !
Blessedly imperfect perhaps, but perfectly blessed, that’s for sure !
We are bracing for some kind of icky storm here. A crazy mix of rain and snow and ice and all the crap this time of year can throw at us.
I am off to get a haircut and do a little shopping today,
and then buckle down to some Thanksgiving prep. here at home tomorrow.
Be safe, and be thankful, Beautiful Ones !
Big Love !
