Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

I sit and marvel at creation.

Enchanted and amazed as colors meld into ecstasy. 

Geometry takes shape at every turn.  

Each reflection cascades imperfection and perfection,

that is in the eye of the beholder. 

Shine light on your shadow, where diamonds shine and sparkle,

Blowing away the Illusion of the know and unknown. 

While the journey is arduous,

every mistake is a gift of splendor

when you take each blunder in stride.

Stay the course and see it through,

where gifts of plenty await you.

I came into our bathroom and bedroom today and although we aren’t there yet, we are close. and as I sat in stillness, the gifts of our labor are taking shape. 

All the mistakes, all the issues, all the problems, all the interventions, every twist turn that we could have imagined, brought me to this place at this moment and I am ever so grateful. 

I can’t wait to share the finished product and I can finally put my toes into the water and say goodbye to this…….

Do you think it was time… πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Thanks for being part of the journey!

Have a great day!

πŸ’–

Cindy

Honey Cindy, I can’t say I haven’t been in this type of rodeo before. Once you’ve been through a couple of rides, your attitude and approach from that point on is a little more manageable and tolerable. I admire your strength and endurance girlfriend. πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ€©πŸ€ΈπŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Girl, you got me rollin’ on the floor over here! πŸ€£πŸ˜…πŸ˜†πŸ˜πŸ˜‚ Cindy, those hips are gonna be fine as the day of the wedding is ticking down for the final count. But if you are that worried about those hips, I simply suggest that you shake that rump (at least you got something to shake) like you never shook it before! LOL 😎 You’re still going to look fabulous! It’s not long now! You have so much to celebrate these days, so give yourself a break, get your “zen” thingy going on, grab a glass of wine or a cup of tea, kick your shoes off, and curl up to some peace and quiet. You know what, I think I just might do that. I can always use a little peace and quiet! Now, where did I hide that bottle of Moscato??? LMBO πŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ€£
