Dealing with a head cold (tis the season) today, I turned up the heater (bundled Poppy on my lap) & painted this lovely Rumi Quote.
The moment I read it, I thought how beautiful... 'a love so deep the ocean would get jealous.' It's what we all deserve. It's what I deserve.
I can handle the ocean getting jealous, anything else is just added drama I no longer desier.
That, would be a very intense love. For awhile anyway... that is why we must have individual hobbies and passions - to fulfill our lives when our other Love is "lacking" or distracted.
Today is December the 1st.
I am not decorating inside this year, my heart is not 'in it'.
The kitchen is not finished.. not that it matters. I've discussed it with Storm, he 'get's it'.
I get defensive- in the past I'm called a grinch, why? Because I won't go into debt for 'gifts' we dont need or want. No thanks. Those days are done. When I give someone a gift it will becasue I want to - not because a date on the calander demands it, and expected to give to several - no wonder people get overwhelmed... I won't contribute to it.
I'd rather have some good times with friends, a nice meal.. quality time with my son. We are going to the museum soon! ;) * I 'get it' wanting Christmas to be special for little ones but the facts are the majority of people can not afford Christmas to the extent they do.
Please don't. Give your children the gift of your time, not your added stress after the holidays when the bills come in.
