Doing Something Nice for Myself

Since my life continues to be traumatic and chaotic, a friend suggested I do something nice for myself. My car is in the shop, which is part of the chaos — my father is going through a medical crisis, and my not having a car only adds to the stress. Without a vehicle, I am pretty much stuck with what is in my immediate environs for that something nice. So I spent a few relaxing moments putting together a fake flower arrangement. It gave me my first smile in several days, so apparently it’s working. Hope it brings a smile to your life, too.
