Sparkling

I bought this gilded maple leaf in Maine.  It was something I just "had to" have when I was in the store.  And I am not usually a sucker for gift shops.  When I got it home, I wondered what could have possessed me to pay $40. for a leaf.  I mean, it's pretty, but it is sitting on the desk here with me.  I have no place to put it.  I would like to give it to someone, but they probably wouldn't have anything to do with it either.

Yesterday I got some fabulously good news at work.  It is not a done deal, so I don't want to write about it.  But suffice it to say that my work life may be changing soon.  And to have someone want me felt so good, I was flying around on the clouds all day.  God's will, not mine... God's will, not mine....

I am now going to a meeting where I will hear a young woman speak.  She has been sober for 5 years I think.  She has been written about here several times in several ways.  She had helped me as a personal trainer, and then she was the recipient of meals I cooked once a month as she recovered from cancer.   She is an awesome woman who I have come to really love.

It's going to be a great Friday.  I think I will stay sober today and I hope you all do too.

That leaf is wonderful. I would hang it somewhere, maybe in a window.
Great news about your new work. I am glad that you were on cloud nine.
Hoping that you have a good Friday.

Could you wear it as a necklace or is it too big. It is very pretty.

I have one "quality" item from places I visit. They have a special place in my study, and always evoke a memory. Cost is no object where memories are concerned!
