Last night, we were at a wonderful birthday party – it was such a pleasure to feel so much love focused on our friend!
He deserves it.
Jim and I were sitting with friends, basking in the lovely time.
One of our friends is a young woman who is a gifted musician.
She opened her bottle of Jones soda and read out the ‘fortune cookie’ written inside the bottle lid.
It said: “You will be confronted with limitless opportunities”.
She contemplated it for a minute and said: ‘Confronted with limitless opportunities….. hmmmm’…..
and that began a heartfelt conversation between us…..
‘Confronted’ with limitless opportunities really does speak to the necessity of developing discernment and wisdom, doesn’t it?
She is a woman of deep heart and great intelligence – and she is a wisdom seeker.
I felt that this small ‘fortune cookie moment’ was filled with significance, so I asked her if I could take the bottle cap and make a brooch for her with it.
I spent the morning working on it, and have just finished it.
I hope that she will feel the love and tenderness in it……
(Update: Yes, she does like it )
Ending on a personal note, and speaking directly to my friend:
Jordan, my dear, may you be blessed on your journey!
You are a gift and a blessing and you make the world a better place.
As an older woman-even though I was born with the name: Crone, I am living it now :) –
speaking to a younger woman,
I spread my wings,
and I wish you well, well, well….
