This morning while cleaning out a closet,
I found this shell.
My mother gave this to me when I was a little girl.
When I find forgotten treasures in my home,
I see a message.
This message is simple and twofold.
take it down off the shelf-
whatever it is-
both literally and figuratively.
Find it, fix it, enjoy it.
I thought of a few expressions
from important people
in my life.
My husband ( at our daughters’ volleyball games).
“You’re ok. Nobody’s hurt.”
My dear friend and roommate in college:
“Everybody is just doing the best they can.”
“I hope your team wins.”
So ,as you make your way into your Wednesday,
may I say
take it down off the shelf-whatever it is
you’re ok, nobody’s hurt
everyone around you is just doing the best they can
I hope your team wins.
