We're all wearing them, Tani's class and teachers will be getting them at her early-birthday/farewell to school party on Tuesday, and friends and family that are far should be getting their package of bracelets in the mail this week.
I ordered them because I thought they'd be a cute distraction in the days leading up to surgery. I had no idea how much Tani would like them or how much love she'd feel emanating from them. I'm so happy I didn't listen to the little voice in my head that said they were a waste of money.
It's not easy to always remember, but many times, that little negative voice inside my head doesn't know anything, and really, he just hangs out here to drown out the other voice, the positive, happy voice.
We're focusing on happy, positive thoughts and kicking the negative guy out. He has no place here today or any day. We're also working on getting rid of a nasty cough that invaded our house last week because hospitals frown on people who are coughing everywhere.
We really like mottos around here. Our motto, which we've been using for the past couple of months, is Love and Light.
Love and Light. That's it, just Love and Light. If you show love, if you are kind, then the light can shine in. And with that light comes the One Above. There's nothing to worry about, because once Hashem's light is here, we can hand all our worries over and be done. Nothing to worry about, all will be well.
So Love and Light, people. Love And Light. I possibly should have had that printed on the other side of the bracelets, but really, that doubled their cost. And that wasn't the negative voice saying it was too much money, that was Mr. Practical. But Mr. Practical can stick around for now, he's an okay guy.
Happy Memorial Day, 2016.
And by that, I do mean to remember all the wonderful people who currently serve, who have served and who gave their lives so we can enjoy the freedoms we do today.
