It’s been a little cold and dark and gloomy and around here lately.
I’m looking out the window right now at the dark storm clouds gathering.
I didn’t even realize how dark it was until I took these kitchen pictures yesterday to show you all a few fall kitchen decorating ideas.
It didn’t have all this light.
Not even close.
This picture has been brightened and lightened through the miracle of photo editing.
It originally looked more like this.
Can you even believe it?
Look at the picture and scroll back up and look at the first picture.
A little light makes all the difference.
A little light. A little sunshine. A little joy.
I think that’s what we all need today.
A little sunshine.
I have extra over here at the farmhouse and I wanted to share some with you.
Just in case you needed some
Just in case you had a hard week.
Just in case you were a little sad.
Just in case.
I wanted to share.
Nothing earth shattering.
But yesterday when I stood in the middle of my kitchen with the pumpkins and the sheaves of wheat and the stacks of white dishes and those antique floors….
I stopped for just an instant to take it all in.
There was joy. There was light. There was sunshine.
I just had to look for it.
Sunshine that I lost a pound.
Sunshine that I finished the last chapter of the book.
Sunshine that I finally fixed my roots that you could see from outer space.
Sunshine that the dogs had a bath.
Sunshine that my husband’s eyes twinkled at me this morning over a cup of coffee.
Simple. Sweet. Wonderful. Sunshine.
There was so much sunshine that I wanted to share it.
So today I wanted to take a moment to tell you.
Yes. You with the coffee or the hot tea or the diet coke with a blueberry muffin.
You are a rock star.
I thought you needed to know.
Just in case no one had mentioned it yet to you today.
I wanted to be the first.
Now you probably already knew how amazing you are.
You are probably thinking “thank goodness she finally noticed it and mentioned it.”
You probably already figured out that you are a rock star.
And from one rock star to another….
….I totally agree. 🙂
PS If you get a chance today, maybe spread a little sunshine in your corner of the world…
….there’s probably someone else amazing who needs it.
