Helloooo and happy Monday! The Flower Fairies are extremely excited about introducing the card of the week because it’s all about LOVE!!! In honor of the impending Valentine’s Day and all of us romantic fools, we all need some love! Love is such an interesting topic of discussion, and I’m pondering on where to go with this. As I look around my kitchen, it’s funny how the word LOVE pops out in six different places. I wish there was love poppin out in other areas of the house too, but I digress and that’s a totally different topic…we’ll save that one for next week tehehe! This week has had its challenges, especially with feeling like I was from another planet for a few days. My middle feline critter had surgery and if this isn’t telling at all, my Izzy has been nicknamed “Devil Spawn” by her aunt. Within minutes of taking her into the vet, the vet admitted he sees how she earned her nickname. Sigh. This cat of mine is lovely…but she does have her personality quirks. Every picture I have is her doing something she shouldn’t be…she chases me through the house when I sing and grabs my leg and bites me. She’s also been known to poop in my shoes after I get back from vacay…but ya know, I still love her to pieces. Even when I have to pay extra for her to be sedated so she can be examined at her doctor’s appointment. Children! She’s fine, and back home, and puts her neck in my hand where her stitches are so I can do energy work on her. Even the critters recognize the power of healing hands! Maybe that’s what she thinks when she tries to bite me too–Ha! Love is such an extraordinary thing…yet it is so difficult to express and share at times. Why? And why do we make it so difficult? As I was leaving the vet, there was a person in the parking lot whose pet just crossed the rainbow bridge. I asked if they would like a hug, which they did, and just hung onto me for a few moments and cried. Pets are unconditional love for us, and so easy for us to express that love. Just think, if we greeted each other the way our dogs did (no, not the butt sniffing!) with the excitement and wonder every time we come home, how would life be different? We would always know that we are loved!
On another note, I need to give a shout out of love to my friend who shall remain nameless since me even writing this will embarrass him. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your endless patience, kindness, sarcasm, wit, and support this weekend in helping me with my new office. I know he doesn’t think it’s a big deal, however, spending twelve hours with someone who can’t make up her mind and is anxious about the whole transitioning process, his picking at me and making me laugh was a great reminder to me that I’m to be having fun and enjoying this process instead of being a ball of anxiety. And he even let me have a bite of his cheesecake when I ordered two pieces of my own without saying anything–what a friend!
