RLast Wednesday I wrote a post in response to Rarasaur’s new weekly writing/photography challenge ‘Prompt for the promptless‘ Wabi-Sabi. In response to my post, which was definitely quite self depreciating as I have been feeling very under the weather recently which tends to bring me down, My auntie Marie suggested;
My dear pet lamb, just focus on one of your talents (and you have plenty) today. Find an empty jam jar, write the talent on a piece of paper and at the end of the day put it in the jar. Repeat tomorrow with another one. Then watch the jar fill up. You can report back to me at the end of a month! Here endeth my lecture!
I found a jam jar, wrote my label on it, and wrote out a talent of mine, with the date, then I left it on the side and went out.
Later in the day I came home to this:
One of my daughters, Charlotte had read my post and filled my jar for me in just one day!
I’m going to continue writing a talent a day, but it’s only day 6 & I’m running out of ideas! My head isn’t working well today though as I had my sinuses cleared yesterday under a general anaesthetic, and apparently they were much worse than they looked in the MRI scan, so i’m feeling a bit sore & spacey… but at least i should feel a lot better soon!!
Charlotte came in with Peter to collect her poor mummy from hospital
And then fainted cos of the heat & bashed her head on a corner & now has a massive bruise on her forehead 😦 She came home from hospital looking worse for wear than I did!!
