What does this have to do with today's card? I thought the color combination was "gorgeous!" I have to admit, the Kiwi Kiss gave me a bit of a headache. But Very Vanilla and Baja Breeze... oooh, gorgeous.
There's another story to this card. Recently, my book club is reading a book entitled, Anybody Out There? by Marian Keyes. In it, the main character, Anna, is coping with, among other things, the sudden death of her husband. Just today, I was relating to Karen how now, when I hang up the phone, I wonder if that's the last time I will talk to Scott (we had a tiff today... some hanging up on my part... some crankiness on his part). Not to be morbid, but none of us is guaranteed the next second of life.
So, I chose my sentiment quite intentionally. I chose the spotlight technique because I think we can find color in the seemingly colorless... happy in the seemingly unhappy... interest in the seemingly boring... We just need to put forth a conscious effort each day.
