Sam I Am

“Rain drops on roses and whiskers on kittens, snow flakes that stay on nose and eye lashes, silver white winters that melt into spring, these are a few of my favorite things!” one of my favorite songs.

I truly enjoy the simple things in life, skipping down the sidewalk, a stunning plant along side my walking path, the northern lights lighting up the sky, Christmas music dancing through the air. Just thinking about these treasures fills me with happiness.

I store these memories inside and save them. I usually find the perfect story to weave these memories into a beautiful description. I can recall every one of my scenes from that moment in time. It is a truly magical moment.

There are times I am stuck in a gloomy cloud. During these moments the universe sends me sighs. I am pretty stubborn, so it can take several signs before I realize the meaning and that it is in fact for me.

A few years ago I was living with a shattered heart. In the beautiful country side of Bavaria I started to see hearts everywhere. Then I literally received a small wooden heart. The people of Bavaria were helping to mend my heart.

Last Friday the universe was sending me “Samuels.” Every customer I helped was named “Samuel.” Samuel on the phone, Samuel in the movie I chose to watch, Samuel in the random book I grabbed! It became comical. I am not sure what the message was. I will have to sit with this for a while…Sam I am…maybe?
