It is a Pick Your Prize Weekend here at The Inspired Room! It has been a long couple of weeks for me and I’m finally getting back in the swing. As you probably know, last week my daughter had emergency surgery. She is doing so much better, I appreciate all of your comments, messages and concern.
The day of the appendectomy I was pretty much in a fog of disbelief as I drove behind the ambulance taking her to the hospital. They wheeled her inside, gave her some meds to put her to sleep for her surgery and I walked out to the waiting room. I was afraid, worried and all alone (my husband was still at home waking our sleeping son and two dogs) — or so it appeared to anyone watching me pace the hallway.
As I walked down the hall in the waiting area, I looked over at the display window of the gift shop. I did a double take. My friend Dee’s artwork (Red Letter Words), the Urban Soul line that DaySpring carries, was in the window! If I had the strength I would have done a little jig right there in the hospital after seeing those words. It felt like a little message just for me. I wasn’t alone at all. I felt the reassurance at that moment that everything was going to be OK.
It wasn’t an ordinary piece of art work, it had meaning and a hopeful message behind it. I needed that bit of reassurance that everything was under control. Having inspirational messages around our homes works the same way, it keeps us encouraged and focused on our blessings and what matters most.
In case you didn’t know, DaySpring is the company behind the site (in)courage that I write for each month. They are a division of Hallmark. I’ve been a part of the(in)courage site since its very beginning, and I was a partner with DaySpring for a year before that! DaySpring is just all around an amazingly encouraging and wonderful company I’m honored to partner with in so many ways! I’m always pleased to connect you to them and let you know about the wonderful products I actually love and use in my own home!
