Isn't it funny how things come to us?
Sometimes things we have wanted for a long time
we find in the strangest places.
You never know what's around the
corner or what the new day may bring.
I have had this old cream and sugar bowl
for many years.
It was given to my Aunt at one of her
bridal showers back in the 1950's.
She never liked it and it ended up with my mom
who passed it on to me knowing i would love it.
Which i do!
About five years ago my parents moved their store
to a building they purchased downtown.
They have a really great back room with a full kitchen.
I was there visiting and opened the cupboard to get
myself a mug for tea when i spotted this tea pot!
It was left behind by the previous owner.
Hidden in the corner and my mom never made
the connection to my cream and sugar bowl.
It's the exact pattern.
She forgot how the sugar bowl was given to her sister
until i refreshed her memory.
But isn't it strange how this beautiful tea pot
was left behind??
And left for me to find who owns
the matching cream and sugar bowl?
I don't know about you but i love
stuff like this...strange happenings...
more mysteries of life that
make me even more appreciative.
We have all been told that it is good to have a gratitude journal...but for me i find it better to be in a daily state of appreciation. If we look for it there is always something to appreciate in any given day.
I'm reading a great novel and the character is paralyzed from the neck down from polio.
The part that hit home to me the most was when she said how when her caretaker dusts the lamp
shade it can sometimes become crooked and she cannot reach out to fix it.
Think about that for a moment.... not being able to reach over and fix that shade into place.
That was deep for me...and really made me realize so much.
Simple things can sometimes be the biggest things to appreciate.
Until next time have a happy week!
