I walked into such a sweet atmosphere this morning, as Denise Warren was readying the tables for a bridal luncheon. As proprietor, Denise always takes great care in preparing a fresh and peaceful environment for her guests and today was no exception.
There is something delicious in the anticipation of a celebration. There is nothing more joyful than friends coming together to share a bit of life, and being asked to facilitate that is really quite an honor. I was blessed to be able to help out today by furnishing centerpieces for the tables. They featured some of the vintage spoons I've been altering and stamping lately. (I'll have to post some more pictures of those later.)
So I've been thinking a lot today about that atmosphere...where preparations are made for a great celebration. What if we lived each day with that kind of anticipation? What if we walked around believing something joyful and wonderful was about to occur? Would we see and interpret things differently? Would set-backs and dissapointments become opportunities...just bumps on the road to something better?
