Gift 15 - I sent a friend and adorable picture of a rabbit and wished her "happy singles awareness day "which is what she calls Valentine's Day. I think she really appreciated it because she has no one to celebrate Valentine's Day with except for her mother. She sent me a nice thank you note. I'm glad I made her feel good. Gift 16- as tired as I was and despite having other things to do I took time to take my daughters computer to the shop. It hasn't been working for a couple of days and I knew she really wanted it back I was hoping to be able to hand it to her all fixed when she got home from school. Unfortunately the computer shop with Pat and the best I could do was set up an appointment for Friday. So I was a little sad I couldn't give her a big computer but it's one of those times when is the thought that counts.💟💻
Gift14- My daughter was taking a bath to relax. I suddenly felt that I had to find a mood light which I had and make it work. I e had it for a couple of years, it was a gift from my sister who lives in Tokyo, but I can't read Japanese so I couldn't figure out how to open it and put the batteries in. But I was determined to make it work for my daughter. So I pulled and twisted and pryed until at last it popped open, once the batteries were I place, it had a soft glow that slowly changed colors, perfect for a relaxing bath, she loved it. I felt light and happy while I was working on it. It was good for my mood too.🐰
I had an eventful morning. While walking my dog at 5:45 this morning, I head a baby bird crying. Since it was dark and I couldn't see, I thought the baby was in a nest crying for its mama.
Four and a half hours later, I walk my dog again and a neighbor and I heard the bird. He saw it on the ground under the Oleander bushes crying. Poor baby. Mama had deserted it or it fell out of a nest which we couldn't find.
I called two veterinarian offices, one bird rescue (who only does domestic birds) and was referred to a wild bird sanctuary. I called a friend who took me across town to drop off the baby bird which the neighbor put in a shoe box I had.
It is now in its new forever home. The woman who runs the sanctuary said she has some birds who play foster parents who will take care of the baby pigeon.
Here is a little Good Karma Success: California has just broken out of our extended draught. The ground is saturated and doing it's best to hold together. With that in mind, I have been trying to remember to park on the other side of the driveway where there is not mud. Yesterday I remembered....Last night a tree fell on the muddy side of the driveway! Thank goodness I remembered or my car would have been under the tree!🌧🌳🚗
Gift 9 and 10-....see, this is why it is important to record gifts as they happen because I don't remember 8 and 9 : ( Bad internet connection! Gift 11- Told my mom how much I am enjoying a gift she gave me. Gift 12- Gave my time and energy and physical comfort to run an 2 hour meeting for the cause. I was really happy with what we accomplished, but very fatigued after. Most happy that lots of people at the meeting volunteered to also give time and energy at future meetings and events. Giving goes around.🎉 Gift 13. Let myself relax and accept a hug from my husband when he saw that I was tense....some times I don't want to let go of the tension, I guess because how can I figure the issue out if I'm not forcing myself into it? Silly, huh?
