in the past week, i received two lots of upsetting news that initially left me feeling down in the dumps. you know, those times when you start to question whether or not you'll ever get a fair break in life. i had two choices. one, to let this news weigh heavily on my mind to the point of depression. or, two, to reach for something positive to hold onto. hence, the mantra card for this week....a reminder that i have a choice. i have the power to release those negative and emotional burdens/emotions rather than carry them around with me. i choose to reach for the positives and welcome joy into my life.
i don't know the name of this tree but there are quite a lot of them in this area. they look lovely in a group and in bloom. they also line a few of the streets. this one was growing outside the local post office.
one of the joyful moments i had this week was the beautiful flowers i received from my brother and his wife for my 50th birthday.
today, the charmed DVDs i had ordered arrived in the mail! YAY! yes, i'm a charmed fan......well, i'm really only a fan of the earlier episodes which starred prue, the oldest sister. i lost interest when paige came on the scene....nothing against her, i just preferred and missed prue. season 3 is in transit as i type.
