Cool Refreshing Drink

Another busy day is here, but as busy as it might be, it is still a little more relaxing than the one I experienced thirty three years ago today. You see, today is Butterfly's birthday. Happy Birthday hunny. She and the Boy are coming over for dinner tonight, so we will be cooking up a special feast to celebrate the day. How wonderful it is to be living so close to the kids now that we can just invite them over for dinner without having to travel all the way across the province to see them. I am lovin' this.

So, with all the work to be done in the kichen today I don't have time to write much again right now, but did want to share the Advent surprise with you.

I received this beautiful stained glass candle holder and the girls got a tiny gold Christmas angel along with this quote and thought for the day.

"For each of us, as women, there is a deep place within, where hidden and growing our true spirit rises…within these deep places, each one holds an incredible reserve of creativity and power, of unexamined and unrecorded emotion and feeling."

Audre Lorde

We do have deep wells of creativity and power within ourselves. Get out your bucket and dip down into that well today. What you find there will be as sweet and refreshing to your spirit as a cool drink on a hot day.
