I was going to tell you all another Dan & Julie story, but I had a household injury, yet another incident. With the new gawdamn toaster. So I can’t type very well tonight. Instead I am going to show you a picture of the new purse Daniel bought me when we were at the coast. Five dollars! The girls said it was ugly, and had a bad shape. But I liked it, and the pattern on that carpet-bag material has seashells on it. Also, I needed one.
Yesterday’s foreign license plates were:
Texas, Alberta (Canada again Lynne!), and Illinois.
Our card today is from the Archangel Oracle deck. And hopefully it will help me while my fingertips heal, or the skin grows back. Because honestly, the ice cubes, lavender oil, anesthetic/antiseptic wash and trifecta of pain relief ain’t really cuttin’ it so far.
“Patience ~ Archangel Jophiel: Your dreams are blooming more rapidly than you realize. Still, they need nurturing and patience.
It takes time for a seedling to push through the ground and mature into a flower-baring plant. Yet, each moment of a plant’s life cycle can bring joy to those who notice its beauty. In the same way, enjoy the process of realizing your dreams. Slow down and feel gratitude, as each step brings your manifestation into tangible form. Notice the lessons and love that spring from every moment that you engage in acting upon your dreams.
Jophiel helps us experience more grace and peace in our lives through slowing down and noticing the beauty that already surrounds us. She asks us to savor and enjoy each moment, rather than hinging our happiness on some future goals. Call upon her anytime you feel rushed, stressed, or unhappy. She will increase your awareness and appreciation of life’s everyday miracles.”
Also, I have sent out a bunch of forwarded e-mails tonight. Dan Savage is doing a YouTube campaign that is totally worth looking at. It was started after a teenager committed suicide last week. Hanna is posting about it today. I can’t even discuss it because it just breaks my heart and makes me cry.
