a Monday for reflections and the last Christmas cards...
I have one speed...slow...the three toed sloth is probably in my DNA helix...but I went to the bank, paid bills like all good Americans and made an exchange ...hopefully the last from Christmas. I came home and watched Dr. Oz as he assisted the chubby of America a gentle way of slowly altering our physical appearance and well being. Yes I am using the 9 inch plate and adding more fruits and vegetables. My god daughter sent me a DVD of gentle exercises to try increase my metabolism...when it is this cold I do like to take naps. Isn't that an exercise in lowering your stress levels? Was I just dreaming? Anyway after dinner I wrote a few more letters...snail mail is something you can hold in your hands and reread at will. Then I went up to gather bits and pieces of leftovers from the baptismal gown to make a healing little angel for a friend's studio. She has been in a real pickle lately but always has the best attitude and is full of laughter and a quick wit. She has had two major surgeries in the last year but for now there is clear, smooth sailing for 2010. I hope this little snail mail puts a smile on her beautiful face and brightens her favorite space...her studio.
We have frigid temperatures right now and the hot green tea is calling me as well as sugar free banana pudding for my evening snack. I want to thank you all for taking the time to read my simple words. I feel connected and supported by mysterious threads of inspiration. You warm my heart and keep me focused as I work toward my whispers from my women. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
