Every day is a new opportunity to discover something new about our”selves” In my case, the dolls who have come to live with me, are teaching me new ways to enjoy my creative abilities. You can see from the little group that drew me to them on the 20th. at a “by invitation only” preview, that they were a motley lot. The preview was at one of the chain Thrift shops, that officially opened its doors this morning at 8:30a.m.. (The ribbon cutting ceremony, I missed) Why.. I had to have both my eyes redone, this time they used laser.
I digress… back to the dolls each one had to be cleaned and re”strung” (their limbs tightened) This meant taking off their heads and removing all the stuffing. While their heads were off, I cleaned their hair. Normally, I wouldn’t have gone looking for such a task, I had my fill of stuffing toys and doing limbs when I was in the bear making phase.
There is an expression that eludes me at the moment, as I am distracted by the black floaters I have in my eyes, (to be expected, said the specialist) I didn’t have to think about it, I just did it. I had been told there are YouTube videos on how to.. but I just knew. Our brains act like our own memory card, when you need to do something, instinctively you set to it, and it is done.
Much like typing… I’ve typed for years, (touch typing) so I don’t think of how to type, I just do it. The PL Precepts, and Principles, and the training we get in PL, (Perfect Liberty) help us to hone our creativity and skills. For this I am thankful, and appreciate my gray matter and my faith for allowing me to recognize that having God in my life, and living by the Precepts and Principles, enables me to do and achieve the things in life that I want to do.
Challenges and opportunities are gifts. Seeing the transformations, makes me smile, and having the awareness that all I am, and all I do, is a reflection in my commitment to God and living the “PL Way” well.. that makes for a very happy me.
Here it is, another day coming to an end… Friday is just around the corner.. and I have no idea, what us in store for me tomorrow, isn’t that grand. What-ever, I know it will be another wonderful day.
