Anybody home? One of my Picture Spring assignments is to “reflect and look back” by looking back through my archives and selecting a photo I haven’t shared before. I captured this shot last October, just outside a really fun little shop in Apalachicola. I wish I could remember the name of the shop! I’m sure I’ll be back over there soon. Finding this picture again reminded me of that trip. I was over there to check out the property I’ve been dreaming about and had such a great day just wandering through all the funky little art galleries and antique shops in Apalachicola and dreaming about what I wanted to do. I had lunch at “That Place in Apalach,” a great old diner. It was a much needed couple days of solitude. Rare for me! But little trips like that refuel me and remind me of my blessings.
I got home late last night so I didn’t get to talk to the girls before they went to bed. This morning, they both excitedly told me about some card project they needed to do for their teacher. I think Olivia said it best. Livvie: “Mama! We have to make seven cards for Jaxson de Ville!” Mama: “Why?” Livvie: “So I can win a big bucket of green slime [sang with opera-like gusto]!” So there you have it. We have to make seven cards for Jaxson de Ville so Livvie can win a big bucket of green slime. Talk about reminding you of your blessings! How blessed would this world be if all it took to make us all happy was a big bucket of green slime? What’s your “big bucket of green slime”? What would really tickle your toes? Maybe you are already blessed with it.
