The best email of the week.
“Barbara…Your Holiday candle is here!”
My daughter laughed as I put this reminder in my calendar. “Only my Mother schedules a candle pickup”, she quipped. Life is not all business. You have to schedule in goodness too.
The lady who sent the email owns a local shoppe and we’ve become friends. She saw me fall in love with the candle last year and when the holidays were over, the candle disappeared.
She promised to get it back in her shoppe this year and said she would email me. She stayed true to her word and in turn, I went to pick it up!
We are only as good as our word.
I’m being careful not to overextend myself this year. To stay present and go with the flow as life unfolds. It’s a matter of slowing the pace and saying, ‘no’ a lot. A fast ‘yes’ is face to face with my daughter, a neighbor, or friend. Connectivity is so important and I’m happy to be still for that.
It hasn’t been lit yet, but there’s time.
Pumpkins on the front porch and listening to Christmas music as I type. Savor the moments.
