Hey! Grace here.
Forgive me, I’m not quite myself today. Usually I’m pretty focused and have great energy, but today I’ve been fannying around all day and forgetting what I’m doing in the middle of a task. With every task.
I know why. It’s no big mystery. It’s because my dear Oma is having her first hip replacement surgery today. And though I’m in New York, and she’s in England, and though I know she’s going to be absolutely fine, all of my positive energy and good vibes are over there in the Medway Towns with my Mum, Granddad and lovely Oma. They need it more than me today, you see.
It’s strange. I don’t feel nervous or scared. I just feel low on energy. Or a bit ‘spacey’ or depleted. Does that make sense? I have a feeling it’s because I’ve sent it all to them! That positive energy that people say I exude and my trusty guardian angels have all hopped over the pond, and are sharing space with my favourite and most beloved people. One will be sat with my Mum, making sure she stays strong and calm, for herself and the other two. One will have their arm around my lovely Granddad the whole time, as I think he gets silently nervous in these situations. And the rest of them (except for one that will have trotted off to Clarity Towers to guide my Uncle Steve through his day) will be huddled around my Oma making sure everything goes smoothly, and that she’s okay.
And until I get that positive phone call back from my Mum, they’ll stay there. And when that call comes, in a MOMENT, I’ll be replenished. I’ll be full of life and love and laughter (and focus) again. We all will.
It’ll all be good! But in the meantime, in-between-time, I’m looking at my phone rather obsessively and not getting anything done…
So! I started having a look through our inventory in the Clarity Amazon USA store and was reminded of a stamp we have. One that I absolutely love!
How appropriate! Here are some gorgeous and inspiring cards made by some of our lovely friends and customers.
These two samples use the same sentiment, but were created using the Groovi plate. You can pick up this variant of the design over at our webstore – just click here.
And just like that! The call just came, and my Oma is out of the surgery and okay 🙂
I’ll leave a few of my guardian mates over there for a little while though, while she sleeps and heals, and everyone can breathe a little easier! I only need enough to get me back to doing work 😉
Please send lots of positive energy and prayers for the Matriarch of our family!
Lotsa Love, Grace xoxo
