THE LITTLE THINGS

Don’t you just LOVE gifts?

Doesn’t even matter the SIZE…

A GIFT IS A GIFT IS A GIFT INDEED.

BUT SOME GIFTS ARE PRICELESS.

IT’S SUCH A BIG DEAL FOR ME TO FIND A PLACE TO DISPLAY GIFTS AROUND THE HOUSE. FIRST THE PERSON THAT GIVES THE GIFT HAS TO HAVE A SPECIAL PLACE IN OUR HEARTS.

FUNNY STORY,

I ONCE HAD A “FRIEND” ACTUALLY STOP BY UNANNOUNCED & UNEXPECTEDLY. FOR ME THAT IS A NO NO UNLESS IT’S ANY TYPE OF EMERGENCY. anyWHO, WHEN I ARRIVED HOME THAT EVENING MY HUSBAND HAD THE ITEMS SITTING OUT FOR ME AND I DO BELIEVE HE THOUGHT I’D BE EXCITED FOR THEM BUT I COULDN’T GET PAST A “FEELING”.

IN HIS DEFENSE, WE WERE JUST MARRIED AND HE DIDN’T REALLY KNOW WHO MY “FRIENDS” WERE… BY NAME. I KNEW FOR SURE THOUGH THAT THE NAME HE WAS SAYING, LETS JUST SAY DIDN’T MATCH THE GIFT AND I STILL HAD THE “FEELING”.

LONG STORY SHORT, WE SAT DOWN AND TALKED SO THAT HE CAN GIVE ME WHAT I NEEDED TO DISTINGUISH WHO HAD GIVEN THE GIFTS.

Didn’t take Long, Because it didn’t take Long and

AS BAD AS IT HURT, I HAD TO THROW THE GIFT OUT AND LET ME BE CLEAR IT WASN’T JUST ONE ITEM, THERE WERE SEVERAL really really NICE items that were apart of the entire gift itSELF, BUT UPON FURTHER EXAMINATION AND DISCUSSION THE GIFTS BECAME GARBAGE!!! ONCE THEY WERE OUT OF OUR SPACE MY WHOLE “ATTITUDE” CHANGED BECAUSE I WAS UNNERVED AT THE WHOLE thing.

THAT WAS OVER 5 YEARS AGO, MY HUSBAND NOW KNOWS EXACTLY WHO’S WHO IN MY LIFE AND WHERE I STAND IN ALL OF MY relationSHIPS.

HE KNOWS BECAUSE I KEEP HIM UPDATED!!! THAT’S JUST A LITTLE THING WE DO…WE CHECK IN!!!

BACK TO MY GIFT

THIS IS A GIFT FROM MY SISTER. ITS VERY SPECIAL TO ME, SO MUCH SO THAT IT ACTUALLY IS SITTING ON A VINTAGE PIECE THAT MY HUSBAND & I INHERITED. IT’S A BEAUTIFUL PIECE ITSELF & SERVES AS A REMINDER TO ALWAYS BE COURAGEOUS. TO REMEMBER THE POWER I HAVE THROUGH CHRIST JESUS & TO ALWAYS BE HELPFUL TO THOSE THAT NEED HELP BUT TO NEVER AGAIN IN LIFE WASTE TIME ON NONSENSE.

YES, I GET ALL THAT & MORE FROM A LITTLE OLE POT STAND and believe it Or not, THERE IS MORE… THERE IS ALWAYS MORE MY DEAR.

BUT A WISE MAN ONCE TOLD ME… DON’T NOBODY CARE ABOUT ALL THAT!!!

ITS TRUE, FOLK DON’T REALLY WANT TO HEAR ABOUT THE GOOD STUFF. BUT THEY BRIGHT EYED & BUSY TAILED FOR THE NEXT. AND BY NEXT I MEAN… WELL YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN AND IF YOU DON’T JUST THANK GOD!

And ONE quick shout OUT FOR NO MORE DRAMA AND LET’S JUST LEAVE THAT RIGHT WHERE EVER IT IS NOW.

THE FIDDLE LEAF WAS A RESCUE, I SO WISH I HAD A BEFORE PIC. SHE WAS A HOT MESS BUT ALL OF OUR HOUSE PLANTS ARE RESUES. I AM VERY GOOD AT BRINGING THINGS BACK TO LIFE AND NURTURING THEM SO THAT THEY THRIVE AS WELL AS SURVIVE.

GOOGLE SAYS THAT THE FIDDLE LEAF PURIFIES YOUR HOMES AIR WHILE LOOKING STYLISH…REMINDS ME OF ME!!!

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

ISN’T SHE GRAND?

AND YES, SHE HAS ALREADY HAD HER WATER TODAY!!!

WHAT ABOUT YOU?

HAVE YOU HAD ENOUGH WATER TODAY?

REMEMBER WE ARE LIKE PLANTS & WE ALL DO WELL WITH LIGHT, LOVE & LIQUID SO DON’T FORGET TO DRINK YOUR WATER LOVES.

And always

TRUST YOUR FEELINGS!

BLESSINGS ABOUNDING,

Vetta
