Oh that Dave, he is so fond of people and cookies. Today though, he met the BIG Cookie and stopped to chat with him about mail art. Cookie likes to make his own artistamps to decorate letters and envelopes, and Dave thought this was a terrific idea and couldn’t wait to try it.
XIV – GRACE (Temperance)
This cat manages to handle everything he walks through with poise and grace. It doesn’t hurt that someone is dangling a big cookie in front of him. Eyes on the prize little Siamese friend.
The reverse of this card speaks to me today. I was trying to clean my washer yesterday and the water over-ran the sink with all the dog hair clogging the drain during the spin cycle. Of course these things always happen when you’re alone right? So I scrambled and mopped and had a good cry but I am very sore today. After it was over, the spouse came home with Cookie which gave me a chuckle, and then the spouse-oh helped me to clean up.
Sometimes things are overwhelming and you can’t find equilibrium. It looks like things around here are simply going to be like that while we prepare to move. We had planned to have the house up for sale by now but we can’t get contractors to come, and I feel upset, and out of balance with no way to control timing.
So it’s challenging, but what I can do is look after my health and honour my body, mind, and spirit through it all. That cat of course tells me to keep my eyes on the prize, the Big Cookie of the new life.
Grace tiptoes through the waves, as they come in and out crashing against the walkway.
