A Walk in the Park

Being self-employed, you have 99 percent happy days.

Yesterday was a one percent day, that rarely happens, but when it does, it’s absolutely awful. One of my clients stressed me to the point of chest pains and almost tears. Dennis was at the animal hospital with Billy. I was so stressed I called him there for comfort!

Then I spent a few hours getting lost in writing my book which is always a pleasure. Then I noticed the day was almost over. My husband was working out in the yard and just as I was going out, he was coming in. I suggested a walk.

What a great idea! It was so gorgeous out and not only did we see the fawn pictured above, but we saw the smallest bunny I ever saw in my life! It felt so good to get out and about.

No matter how much you love what you do, you just need to break away and call it a day.

Today I feel refreshed!

And I LOVE my dreams:

Last night I had a beautiful dream that my husband and I went to see Tommy James perform in the ocean. His whole band was in the ocean playing their instruments. It was so cool and surreal. I had a bathing suit on, and my husband looked very sexy in wet blue jeans.  Tommy came over to us to say “hello.”

Symbolism of Deer and Christmas Magic

For most of my adult life I’ve been lucky to live near wooded areas where deer roam freely. I’ve always thought of deer as beautiful, elegant creatures. The deer spirit represents peace and adventure.

Without fail, every Christmas season that I am alone with my husband somewhere, a deer magically appears out of nowhere. Last night we were simply shopping for our holiday party and a deer crossed our path.

Our first Christmas deer appeared to us when we first started dating, after a Christmas party. We spotted a small deer in a wooded area, stopped the car and admired the sight.

I started softly singing, “There’s Always Tomorrow (for dreams to come true)” — the song that Clarice sang to Rudolph in “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.”

Clarice and Rudolph“I think it’s a lovely nose!”

Then I realized I am singing to a professional musician — off key — so I stopped singing.

“Keep singing!” Dennis encouraged.

And, to me, that was the magic of our first Christmas; having someone love me unconditionally, including my off-key singing. From that moment on I always sang to Dennis. And I am getting better. Sometimes he’ll even say, “Very good!”

It’s a beautiful, peaceful feeling to fall in love with someone who loves you just as you are, and to share your adventures with, which is probably why Santa sends us his magic each Christmas in the form of a deer spirit.

Watch for signs that Santa is sending to YOU!

People from all over the world believe in Santa Claus and the magic of Christmas.

When you believe, his magic will appear — sometimes out of nowhere!
