December 1st! You know what that means, don’t you? Rabbit Rabbit! And we could all use a little luck and good wishes as the holiday month begins ~ full of fun, festivities and frolicking children! Take a moment to allow the quote above to seep in when you are feeling blue or when the day has been too much. You begin anew with the dawn of a new day. So lay your tired body and sleepy head upon the pillow. Let the day’s burdens and body’s weariness be released from your soul. Rest peacefully and allow yourself to rejuvenate your mental, physical and emotional energy throughout the night so you can awaken to a new day filled with endless possibility, light and love.
It’s a new day ~ a new month!
P.S. Thank you for all of your loving support! ♥♥♥
“Don’t confuse your path with your destination. Just because it is stormy now doesn’t mean that you aren’t headed for sunshine.” – Unknown
Last week we spoke of shooting stars and of thedawn and so today let’s begin with storms and sunshine. You know I post for you and as a reminder to myself as well. It just seems that many times what I connect with and want to share, somehow benefits someone else as well. I think that’s why I blog…is that your purpose as well?
Being on this path in life isn’t always easy. There are rocky roads of which I’ve traveled quite a few. I won’t lie. It hasn’t been an easy life for me and it’s not easy now. But I still wake up every morning hoping for a bright new day. Sure there have been storms. I just keep waiting for the rainbow to appear after the storm. One of these days, the rainbows will come back into my life. I have to believe that in my heart, for I always believe in love.
I took this picture this morning of one of the daffodils on my kitchen table because it made me smile and I thought I’d share it with you today. The daffs are not blooming in my yard yet as it’s too cold. They are still just green shoots coming out of the cold hard earth. But they are there, heralding the beginning of Spring, just waiting for the perfect moment to shine their yellow sunshine on all.
Spring to me is a rebirth ~ just like every dawn which comes my way. It’s a newness from which the hope of a new day springs for me. Daffodils remind me that the struggle of winter’s barrenness is over and with it comes the rebirth of creativity and the newness of Spring which enter the soul.
I took my picture, uploaded it to my free SendOutCards account and made it into a greeting card within 5 minutes! If you look closely you can see the green dotted outline of what is printed on the card ~ almost all of my images are that way because I make my own greeting cards and/or use the ones from the SOC (SendOutCards) catalog to make make my images for my blog. Obviously the green dots aren’t on the greeting card, this is just how it shows what the image will look like so that I can make sure that my image is within the green dotted line which is what’s printed on the card! I’d love to share my daffodil with you ~ if you send me your address, I’ll send you a card! Wouldn’t you enjoy a surprise in your mailbox amidst the bills and junk mail? I’d love to send you a smile today!
