They call me Miss Merry
This picture represents what this blog is all about....finding the joy of living no matter what is going on in your life. As I have shared before on the blog...it's been very hard and even lonely at times without Aunty. I also have an enormous and frustrating challenge on my hands with a major creative project, and sometimes there are personal things, and family dysfunction that are profoundly unfair. I choose to focus on the positive. No matter what is going on in my own life it's still Christmas Time. Putting on all my festive garb elevates my spirits. My friend, who took this picture, got such a kick out of seeing me so high-spirited his own mood and outlook instantly changed! He put on a Santa Cap and we strolled along taking the music with us. (I tucked my miniature Christmas boom-box inside the shimmering blue purse you see above)...
Just now, during the writing of this post a friend called to ask "Do you have a tiara I can borrow for tomorrow night?" The animated question just made my day. Of course I do. She reads this blog, and she gets it. Why not have some fun? Why not lighten your heart. Why not wear a big fury hat, a jingle bell around your neck, red gloves, and Santa Uggs. I dare ask why not? I hope that by sharing this picture and this sentiment you will take an extra sip of some holiday tea, enjoy a holiday stroll, wear a Santa Cap outdoors, and partake in even a few more minutes of merriment this season.
Aunty's love inspires me, guides me, and protects me even in death
Who or what inspire you?
~next post will be those great gift ideas I promised.
