My Gift...My Reminder

Every once in a while we can all use a tangible reminder.  A reminder that, when we look at it, tells us we've taken time to think of ourselves...we matter.....we make a difference...we are appreciated.

Now rereading what I just typed makes me feel that I need to clarify,  it's not like I don't receive those reminders from my loved ones...just sometimes they feel a little sparse, in comparison to all that I am doing and what I need. There I said it! A tad whiney I know ...but it's how I was feeling  when I walked into a wonderful little gift shop, last week.

I wishfully looked through a collection of bracelets and then decided to purchase one,  just for me.......just because!  At checkout I was asked if it was a gift...indeed it is I answered. She then thoughtfully wrapped the box and handed it to me.....thank you very much I grinned!

Be kind to yourself dear readers. Whether it be a little gift wrapped something.....just for you....just because, time to yourself, a pampering treat or a visit with friends. Keep yourselves full so that you may have enough to give to others and perpetuate the acts of goodness that help us kiss the world with kindness.
