Is this card a hoot or what? My Aunt sent me this card after she had heard through the grapevine ( thanks mom ) that I had my first official hot flash. She was just having a little fun with me and welcoming me to the club! Don't pretend you don't know which club I'm talking about. You know darned well which one. The one where it's perfectly acceptable to wear pink pants with a yellow polka dotted blouse, and bright red shoes with lipstick to match and a nice string of pearls for the finishing touch.
I needed the laugh, believe me! I'd been moping around a little, giving in to ridiculous thoughts of being all washed up with nothing good left to offer the world. You've been there too? Not being one to wallow too long in the low lands of despair, I pulled myself up by my rhinestone cowboy boot straps and gave myself a good talking to. Then I got out my pistol's, ( after I dug them out from under the couch) blew the dust off both barrels, fired them off one at a time and by golly, I felt a whole lot better! The kids and dog ran for cover and my husband just shook his head and mumbled something under his breath about MEAN O' PAUSE.
Now that my own baby making days are almost officially over I'll be plenty busy birthing new ideas as time allows. I don't feel the pressure to set the world on fire like I did in my youth. I would much rather keep a nice a slow burn going, nourish my soul with my favorite people, places and things and CREATE with a sense of playful purpose!
I love seeing others do this too! Blogging has opened my eyes to the amazing talents we are surrounded by each and every day. Yet, another reminder that spirit offers up enough creative ideas for everyone if we just listen closely enough.
I'll be sharing more of my Creative Recycling projects with you and I look forward to seeing what my
I'll bring back new garden inspirations from my visit to Blitheswold Mansion and Gardens ( a real English Manor and Arboretum ) in Rhode Island. I can hardly wait!
May is the month for Mothers ( aren't they all really? ) and I have a special post just for all my mothers and mothers to be.
