you may recognize this beautiful piece. one of my fabulous crafty friends made this and i've admired it on two different occasions when she blogged about hobbies. if you haven't met cinner, then you need to. she has the warmest heart and the best attitude in the world. she sent me this as a little surprise - imagine my joy when i opened it. now it sits in my office where i can admire it every day. thank you cindy - i will cherish. (please ignore the rather rude dinosaur in the background, he was trying to crash cindy's party)
so, thank you cindy. that was so sweet and generous.
the day started out dreary and dark. this afternoon it has blossomed into this glorious sky and the sun coming through my office window feels warm on the left side of my face.
there are simple things around me to do, yellow post-it notes scattered with purple ink. a coffee cup that has the last sips of cold coffee from this morning and printouts from various websites as i do some research for the office.
the day is good. the sun has made an appearance and even though i know it's cold outside, it warms the left side of my face. 'defying gravity' comes on my ipod and the message makes me smile. it's a good message...a very good message.
Love the little vignette I see of you with your post-its and cold coffee with the sun shining in.ReplyDelete

we always have tenderloin grilled, twice baked potatoes and salad. a tradition...
but really, with love around the table it could be grilled cheese sandwiches.
Oh, Char! I read that on Christina's blog and had to come and give you a hug. How right you are. Happy, happy Thursday with much love.
