Celebrate Life

Still reading The War of Art, fascinating.....about half way.  Will do a report soon.
Busy day, early doctor's appointment, then on to the mall and then lunch with Rick......and then home to work in the yard.  Why are off days never off?

It's interesting, I have spent so much time at the chemo clinic/lab it's like going to visit family every time I see one of my doctors.  Every one from delivery guys to receptionists recognize me, it is comforting to see smiling faces and hear friendly get high fives and hugs.  I showed the receptionist my teal toe nail polish today, she just howled with laughter as I lifted my leg and showed her my toes.  Her personal toe nail color was baby blue.  What can I say, it is the little things that brighten your day.

I met an absolutely delightful young woman at one of the shops in the mall today.  She had a tattoo that I immediately recognized its symbolism......her family were all Naval officers.....several generations of them.
We bonded quickly when I told her a little about my job.  Her spirit was amazing, her beauty, breath-taking.....I could have stayed and talked with her most of the day......she now has a loyal customer.

It was good to be out, to spend time outside, feeling the warm sun on my see smiling eat
great fish tacos.  This day was good for my spirit, we celebrated Rick's awards, we celebrated a good day,
we celebrated life.  If you haven't felt the warm sun on your face, or the wind blow through your hair recently, spend some time outside.  Eat a meal outdoors, smile at strangers........celebrate being alive......paint your toe nails blue.  :) 


  1. It's funny you mention the sun feeling warm on your face. I was working out in the back yard yesterday afternoon. The sun broke through the clouds. I looked up and the sun shone, right down on me. It looked so magical. I could feel the warmth. I stood there for a few moments basking in that light, my face up and eyes closed. It was a wonderful experience. Thanks for reminding me.

  2. Sit on the beach...look for the little toddlers run on the vast expanse of sand. It's so important to appreciate life isn't it? Just popped in to let you know I was thinking about you. Hugs!

  3. I love your advice and will try to take all of it, except maybe I'll stick to red toe nails! Nobody sees them with these old lady clunker shoes I wear!
