The week started with me leaving my house at the crack of dawn on Tuesday for court. While that was the low-light of my week, there were many highlights that I needed and appreciated for the love, the thoughtfulness and the generosity they were filled with. This week, I’m grateful for:
- the legacy of Nelson Mandela. He followed up his commitment to equality with conviction and was ready to die for his convictions. His actions brought about monumental change to an ingrained system; what an impacting life he lived!
- Graciousness. Me being able to have a disagreement with my mom aka bff numero uno then have her be gracious enough to admit that she didn’t think of the situation the way I saw it once I explained my position. She’s definitely my prime example of how to say “I’m sorry” and mean it.
- My co-workers A & N, who went over and beyond with jokes and conversation to help me through a particularly difficult work day on Wednesday. When they were done with me, I was laughing until I cried. I even snorted, so that should tell you how much I laughed!!! 😀
- My co-worker who brought me a bag of greens because according to her “you’ll know what to do with them”! Can somebody say soup? 😛
- Being able to use my creative skills on four … yes I said four … projects this week. It felt good to be knitting and crafting again and I forgot my self-consciousness and did so on the subway. 😳 That allowed me to introduce a rider to Ravelry and knitting. How much more awesome can it get?
The other project is a gift so I’ll post that once she receives the package. That project allowed me to be reacquainted with my sewing machine and I think there’ll be a lot more stitchery in my near future.
- To end the week with a class at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens about growing a garden in my apt. The presenter was engaging and it was wonderful to just do something for me. No pressure. Just enjoy the information and my classmates. I even came home with my own desert garden. I can’t wait to see it get bigger.
- And the cherry on top of this week is a swap box from Mama Mellie in my Crafty Hookers group. That box was as one person described it, a “Tea Lover’s Paradise” and it really was. I got These yummies came with a stoneware steeping cup, a tea bag squeezer, chocolate, a beautiful oriental themed tea canister, empty bags for me to make my own tea combos with the loose leaf teas I have, a heart shaped infuser, some yarn and this beautiful ornament
Her package was definitely a beautiful end to an “interesting” week. 😀
Hope you each had a wonderful week and here’s to an awesome upcoming one! 😀
