What is the special occasion you may ask and I will reply - is
there really any need for one?
I spent a good bit of time picking them out, because it was a treat
for myself. I was savouring the moment like it was a perfect piece
of rich chocolate. It was a splurge to remind me that I need to be
kind to myself.
"Would you like them wrapped up?" The Florist asked.
I hesitated for a moment thinking well they are just for me, so not
really. But then I caught myself...
"Why, yes I would, I replied." With a slight lilt in my voice.
The florist wrapped them gently and tied them with a very
special twine...I was smiling inside, these were my gift
Oh, I receive lovely and thoughtful gifts from family and
friends and the treasures they have given me are priceless.
These rose buds were a gift to myself to help me to
remember to worry less, find more energy and strength in the
glorious world that is ours, and to walk gently through this
beautiful thing called life.
When I am able to do even a few of these things, I am being kind to
me, and thats a good thing-
This beautiful Apache Blessing resonated with me so I just had
to share it with all of you-
