trust+gratitude+inspiration friday: helping each other

November 19, 2010

Last night (actually, it was late afternoon, but with the shorter days, it felt like deep of night), I came home from a delicious visit (food + conversation + unwavering support) with my sister Elizabeth.

To find that my something GREAT had arrived while I was away.

You know how tech-geeks like to document the opening of the box containing a new computer/laptop/gaming system/whatever?

That is how I feel with this package.  I know what is in it, and I can hardly wait.

First wonderful thing: it is addressed to “the amazing Jet Harrington”.  Wow.

It is a beautiful thing to receive hand-addressed mail to your amazing self.  If you have not had the pleasure,  I would like to change that.

Seriously.  If you give me your address, I will send you a hand-addressed note.  (I’m sure I can manage that with the size of my readership.)

Next wonderful thing: in the package is a collection of wonder, beauty, and courage.  I can hardly wait to get started reading and watching.

Also kinda fun: I tried out the webcam on my new laptop to get the snap above.  I clicked on nearly every button there, including turning myself into a teddy-bear, and adding snowflakes to the background.

My favourites were putting my photo up in Times Square and this one:

I trust:

  • that I really am enough
  • that my stories are not too (raw, tender, much, exposed…)

I am grateful for:

  • Brené Brown and her perfect protest (I’m #98)
  • my sisters Catherine and Elizabeth, who support and believe in me, and never hear me put myself down without totally calling me on it

I am inspired by:

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

    Catherine, that sounds awesome!

    Sarah Jean, the webcam shots were ridiculously fun to do. Not technical quality, mind you, but very fun. I’ll take that.

    Aw, thank you Tina. I was just messing around. You know how little time I spend in front of the camera. I want to change that – not because I want pics of me, but because I want to get more comfortable with the camera, so I can have and enjoy pics with my loved ones.
