Shed a little light on it....

I am sitting in my living room and the sun has shifted in the sky.    It is hitting the window of the apartment across the way and is reflecting amazing light back through my big window and into my world.     It shows up shadows of little things that you wouldn't have even noticed unless the light had revealed it.    
The shape of the big bow around my lampshade and the statue of "the thinker" poised on the table below.  The horizontal stripes on the wall are cast from the window blinds. 
It's there for only a few minutes until the sun moves on in the sky and changes the shadows.  It makes me think about how many things I have seen and felt that were little surprises in unlikely places.        Those are lucky moments and my wish for you all today is that you see or feel a little surprise today to give you a "moment of pleasure" - whatever that may be for you.  

Today I have been resting from a  bout of the flu..  Nothing serious, but time to snooze and rest and to think.       I got a lovely phonecall from an old friend who is miles away ,   and a caring phonecall from a friend closer by,  a text message with the offer to buy me anything I need - even a magazine and I have had amazing light shine in through my very own window.        Lot's of little  moments today -   and really, that's all anyones needs is just a few.   Truly,  life is how you make it.     (Remind me that I said that in a week please)
Love Julie

There you are! You are that shining light Julie.
You have always been my "light bulb" through out the years I have known you.
Interesting how things change when you focus on the small stuff.
I sometimes think the dust bunnies look different in the sun light lol
I'm sitting here wishing I could bring you a hot cup of Starbucks Miso Tea that you love with just a touch of caramel drizzled on the top... but I cannot.
Hope you feel better soon, and watch all the "I LOVE LUCY" videos you can. Fill your boots, or should I say "mucklucks". lol
Love your thoughts, even when their small ones.
You made my night.
Love you bunches.
P.S. My word verification is CITY as in N.Y. City???
Love Claudie

That's an awesome picture Julie! I think I like that lamp already! Sorry to hear you've been sick, but at the same time I'm glad you've survived it! I'm lying in bed listening to the rain this morning thinking we're probably not going to see any sun today. Glad you were able to capture yesterdays little moment!
Awesome post! Get well and we'll see you soon!
