It’s a sweltering, Summer day here in South Texas, but I feel like I just moved out of the hot zone. The hot zone of LIFE that is. The last month has been a whirl wind! Some major difficulties cushioned by even larger blessings. But today, I felt the heat crank itself down and life feels like it is right where it should be.
Looking back over this last month, I see that I automatically practiced a habit I have been cultivating and teaching about for the last several years…. self-care. In times of family loss, such as the losses I have faced this last month, self-care can be a balancing act. Throw in the responsibility of keeping up with the current of work, bills, feeding the cats (and an unexpected visit to the vet), fixing a broken a/c, and whatever else might fall into the hafto category (even the hafto’s you wanna do), and self-care might easily take a back seat!
But I think I did self-care like a pro!
One way I did that was to postpone the drawing for the Blog GIVE-ersary Giveaways. Yep, the day I was to do the drawing was the day the heat blasted on. But now with today looking chill compared to that, I gathered up the names, and did the drawing.
And the results are….. (druuuummmmm rooolll pleeeeeeze!)
As I wrap-up the giveaway, I want to thank everyone who joined the drawing. I had fun sharing my art with you. I also want to thank those who have supported Art of Collecting Yourself over the last year. What a magical thing, a blog! For me the magic comes in the awesome connections…and that means YOU! Thanks for being my gift this year!
