A bazillion years ago, more or less, I learned an important lesson from the musical ‘Hello Dolly’. When you feel down and out, you put on your Sunday best. I’ve learned over the years, little things can constitute dressing up nice. Pink, fun earrings, red, wearing a favorite shirt, or jeans that make you feel good all combine to lift your spirits. The last few days it has been hard. So very hard. Sewage flooding mom’s entire basement was not how I envisioned the end of July would be. Having mom in the hospital at the start wasn’t in the plan either. It is really neat to look for blessings when you think they aren’t there. There are so many, sometimes it is hard to list them all! Yesterday, I sat for a few minutes with vibrant snapdragons, today i wore pink.
Enjoy yourself and love how you live! (a link to one of my favorite old songs)
