Did the Universe Kill my Oven?

You know those days when you have had it? When you just don't think that you can take another THING happening to discourage you?  As a somewhat spiritually conscious person, you know that personal crises is a mirror, that it is an opportunity to learn, to grow, to expand. You take steps to evaluate and renew self care, visualization, and awareness.

Then, your friggin oven dies. WTF??!!  With a loud pop, kaput. Really?

After the initial shock and dismay of it all and a quick check to make sure there wasn't danger of an electrical fire...I manage the tiniest, "Thank You" under my breath. My husband asks, "Why is this happening?" I tell him we are blessed.

I think it is the Universe telling me to stop cooking dinner and go make some ART.

Until next time, Lovebeams to you!

Bittersweet Mother's Day

It was my first Mother's Day without my mom. It helped to be near the ocean, and to see this SKY. So blue, not a cloud in it. Skies like this say to me, "All is Well" a hug. I am determined to let myself be pampered the next few days. 

My daughter and I spent the day together. Getting to the beach early, enjoying the quiet time before it started to fill up. Making ourselves go into the freezing cold water and laughing big, scared, belly laughs when the fish would skim over our feet. So many fish!  

We decided that the trip would not be complete with a visit to Mon Delice for subs, and pastries of course. 

And waking up to this on Mother's day.! I love to cook for my family, but it is nice to take a day off too!

And the best card from my daughter. I thought she forgot, and then THIS. Grateful. 

I filled my day doing everything I wanted. I played in the studio, hung in the hammock with a fruity cocktail, surf the web just playing around, and relax with my stack of books! And thought about my mom. 

Until next time, Lovebeams to you!
