Most snow I've seen in the ten years I've lived here, that's for sure!!
Right before I left yesterday I got a package of goodies. Didn't even have time to open it. So--I had something fun to do when I got home. Nice!! I needed that! :):)
Mostly embellishments: crystals, sequins, pearls, button brads, dew drops, magnetic discs--fun stuff I have never tried. Also got a glue pad, pound of little paper (plain), and one more pretty little paper pad (8X8). Try something new!
Still waiting on the going out of business sale stuff I ordered in February from Luminarte. She said they were swamped and still making up some of the items when I called about 10 days ago--so should be any day now. I think it is/was a really small family type business. Sad to see some of these great little companies go under. :(
Well, anyways--it was sooooo wonderful that, for once, when I got bad news or something really bad happened--I wasn't alone!! :):):) That has normally been the case in my life. I have joked about how it must have been my karma--some debt I had to repay or lesson to learn this time around. You know how most people withdraw into themselves in a crisis or bad situation? They pull back their energy and more often need yours--so that, even if they are physically there, they aren't able to really be there for you, you know? You don't feel any support and often feel your energy drained off to them. Hard to explain. It's an energy/emotional thing that goes beyond words--in fact, doesn't need words.
After almost 58 years you have no expectations that it will ever be any different, you know? But this time--I was sitting in the room alone--trying to absorb what I had just been told--when it occured to me....I actually have somebody sitting out in the waiting room who loves me, cares about me, and will actually be there for me! Wow! I just got tears in my eyes writing that. :):) When I went out to the waiting room later--that was one of the first things I told Leah. She hugged me! I am so grateful! Life is good!!
With a mutual giving of energy--there is no drain. There is more energy--support. I know I have my people who love me--and I can feel their support even when they aren't with me and live so far away--but it was nice to have somebody in the waiting room--at the time--to give me a hug. Somebody I didn't have to take care of or help through my bad news, you know? ROFL!! Oh life is such a hoot!
Rough and smooth, high and low, dark and light--earth is a wondrous, wondrous place! :):)
