My mother is a wonderful artist and has painted some amazing pictures for me. Most recently is a fantastic European setting that is so beautiful and inspiring. Deserving a perfect framing job; I took the large painting to Micheal’s Craft Store to be professionally framed. They do a good job!!
However, I walked into the building passing all the summer items on sale, 75% off…When in the first week of August is Summer over?? Stunning and sad news to me!!
As I passed a few aisles I encountered pumpkins, goblins, Bats, and Apple Cider Candles…seriously? Why are we setting up shop for next October?? This is August, it’s Summer, C’mon people!!!
And then the biggest stunner of all…..an aisle full of Christmas Ornaments!!! Are you kidding me?? Why does retail PUSH us so quickly??? Arrgh!
Then I began to think..how often to we live for tomorrow, a better season, a new day? What would it look like to be fully present and appreciative for this day? I love Summer and when it IS Fall I will love it. When the Holidays arrive I will enjoy every sweet minute of it! But Today, just don’t rush me!!
