i had a few days where i had to
it wasn't just falling into my lap
as easily as it does most days
so i went on a little treasure hunt.
here is how i found some:
i added nutmeg to my kefir
now it is all festive
and we call it...
i painted my fingernails
this is unusual for me.
but you know what
each time i looked down
i was all suprised and quite tickled to have
i made stuff.
stuff for other people.
it always cheers me up to give away
little bits of this and that.
usually ice cream or cookies
or a note here and there.
right now i am on a garland kick.
even the cheerfulest of hearts
can have days that feel less than okay.
and it is on those days
that i need to seek out ways to bless others
and bless myself
and restore that happy countenance.
