Soulfulness....

As I walked into the Little Shop...yesterday... beginning to pull, from it... the most wonderful, Heart of Country, worthy, merchandise...my hands...began to tremble...
I know... this sounds, crazy.... and..it probably is....but...as I was touching, some of the most precious, soulful things... I was taken back... I stood...near the back door... my eyes, searching  the shelves, I was stunned.... and overwhelmed...with emotion...I reached for the worn, velvet jewelry boxes....one...with the sweetest little gold..heart shaped locket....on a delicate...gold chain...I took it, out of the old, well loved box.... and just held it... I draped it, over the intricate crown, of a tiny... dry painted, soft pink, wall cabinet...everywhere I looked....there was something...that stirred my soul...almost reaching out.. to me...ready to sacrifice.... for...the cause......
There were some things... I began to take, from their places...and then...just couldn't bare to...and left them...I want that 'someone', to walk through these doors, here at Home... to find these Special things...that are so near to my Heart...and..waiting...just for them...
I don't know... if it's the up coming 24th anniversary, of Dad dieing, on the 13th...the stress, of the last, crazy year....{years}... the excitement...for Nashville....The Outpouring, of Confidence, I have received, from so many...{when my own, 'self'... has been a bit, wavering...} It doesn't matter... all I know... is something touched me...yesterday...in that Little Shop...
and...
I'm Back.....
Love to You...

I LOVE THAT SONG!!!!
It makes me so sad... because of the Commercials, that it plays on... with the abused animals....I can't Stand It!
Ahhh...the song....I can so relate...I seem to take a lot of tumbles...on my journey... and always seem to have my tail Feathers, smoldering, from dancing in the Fire! Thank God...For all of the Angels... managing The Fire Hoses... Oh Dear!

It was nice chatting with you, this morning...
See Ya...MONDAY!!! NASHVILLE!!!!
oh dear....
Love to ya!
