The Lonely Glove
Coloured Pencil and Ink
With each passing birthday, I have noticed my world seems to become less complicated, and it takes much less to make me happy. Has anyone else noticed that with their lives? Simple things can become huge accomplishments, and small things make me happy.
"It's not raining today, whoo hooo!"
A few years ago there was a popular book called "The God of Small Things". The book is a description of how the small things in life affect people's behaviour and their lives. So true. A good day for me is when the little things go right.
Several days before Christmas, I lost one of my favourite gloves -- not both of them, just one. Somehow losing both of them would have been less frustrating than losing only one. There's nothing sadder than one lonely glove. On early Monday evening I was pushing my little cart through the IGA grocery store, and I spotted something pink off in the corner near the mangoes. Could it be? Yes, it was! My little lost glove. You have no idea how happy it made me to find my glove. I took it home and paired it back with its partner, and when I closed the cupboard door, I swear I could hear them joyfully greeting each other.
It was a good day.
