i just saw a picture of a drop-dead gorgeous shawl, and the person who made it said she might not even wear it.

that made me think of all the times i "saved" something for a "special occasion". we are not guaranteed any time here. each day is special because it will never come again.

i have become an advocate of using special things any day. so i can wear a beautiful shawl, even if i am walking around the house in my pajamas. i can use a treasured cup for my tea. i can put on cologne, even if i am not leaving the house. anything that brings joy should be right there, handy, ready.

there is enough in life that robs us of joy. bad health, bad news, bad environment, bad blood, bad finances, bad government... if there is something that lifts us even a little, i say "let us be lifted!"
