you see? i said last night in my post that i was so thankful for having a chance to read what you have to say, and there y’all go again inspiring and uplifting me and pointing me in the direction of beautiful things.
i took a little break (and a much needed shower) and opened my little mac on my coffee table and was greeted with a sweet comment by one of my newer blogging buds, grumpy granny, who has decided to join in the june photo journey fun on her blog. yay! as i clicked on over to her blog (click here to visit), i scrolled through some of her latest posts and came across a quote that touched me. i connected immediately with the words and the sentiment. so, i decided i just had to pass it on & share it with the rest of you.
“See this world as a free world, and see everyone in it as trying—through their individual experiences—to find their way back to that calling, back to that Source Energy. And even though there are billions of them going about it in a way that is different than you would choose, there’s no right or wrong way. In other words, bless them all, and get on with the only thing you have any power about, which is opening or closing your vortex to your natural state of Well-Being.”
so. there ya go. that’s what’s was on my table in the morning. my computer, my connection to all of you. a few leftover candles. a car brochure of the car we’re planning to buy in the states. and that’s it.
later on in the day, this table same held 4 mugs, a carafe of coffee, and some ice cream. we had some friends come by for a short visit while they were in town.
isn’t it amazing how tables become such important pieces of furniture in a home? they are usually quite simple, and can be rather ordinary. even boring some would say. yet, we find ourselves sharing intimate moments over good food & drink with family and friends at our tables. we celebrate, discuss, argue, dream, and work at them. every home has one, and i hope they are used. i hope that others have the joy of sharing life around a table with the ones they love. it is truly one of those simple things that makes regular ole daily life a tiny bit more meaningful. that is, if we just take the time to gather there and connect with each other.
i’m so thankful for this little sofa table that i sat at today for a few moments of relaxation & inspiration by myself, and then with my love & our friends as we laughed and chatted the afternoon away. my love & i have has so many cozy, wonderful moments centered around this little wooden centerpiece. it makes me think… our next table purchase/creation will definitely be one that we give a lot of attention to. but you know, in reality, it doesn’t matter at all how it looks or what the design is. all that matters is that it’s there. and that we slide our chairs up under it, ready to discover and enjoy the people in our lives. if i could, i’d invie you all to sit around my table with me at some point. well, if you’re ever in the area, there’s always a seat for you!
