There’s probably more than one or two people who will think I’m off my rocker posting a picture of soap, but let me explain further.
The theme for this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is “New“. Today, after battling through a bout of Dengue for two weeks I feel a little “newer”.
Yesterday, as a very thoughtful gesture SU purchased these two lovely smelling, hand-made goat’s milk and glycerin soaps for me. Normally I would protest at spending what they cost but these little artistic, rosemary smelling wonders make me feel just a little more cared for in my still somewhat fragile emotional state.
The dish that the soaps are on was made and given to me by one of my new friends in Panama. I’ve posed everything in the new light of morning, with a new hibiscus blossom on the fresh green grass.
Some may measure their progress by what they accumulate in their lives; people, money, “stuff”, fame etc. Today is a day that I look around with new eyes and to count it as a blessing as I feel just a little better every day, new and beautiful. Happy New Year.
