It's Monday which means it is time for another Magnificent Monday post! I first began writing the posts in this series because so many people spend their Mondays down, grumbling, and so on. Instead of participating in the typical "moody Mondays" I do my best to find things to celebrate each Monday.
After all, Mondays can be rather magnificent!
This Monday I'm getting over a bit of a cold. All in all, I was blessed to accomplish a bit of cleaning, GED course work, and a few different things around the house, as well as rest. I took a bit of time to photograph a few lovely gifts that I received on Sunday too!
A very sweet new friend of mine blessed me with a new tea-mug, a little nifty "steeper", and herbal tea. All packaged prettily in tissue paper and tied up with ribbon and straw string. (Later this week I plan to share a post about my new tea adventure since I'm used to tea-bags and such instead of using a steeper and loose tea. I'm very excited to try each of the lovely teas.)
I'm so thankful for the gifts. When people bless me with thoughtful gifts it majorly impacts me. But, the reason it impacts me is not because of how much money was spent or because I really want a lot of "stuff". I'm impacted because the objects are merely a symbol of the love, thoughtfulness, creativity, friendship, and so on that came with the gifts. Every time I look at that mug, use the steeper, drink the tea, and wear the ribbon in my hair, I will think of Laura and those items will remind me of her love and kindness. That is how so many different items I have about my room are. I can tell you the memories, love, kindness, and encouragement behind each of them.
Now, on to the photos!
What are some ways that you've celebrated this Magnificent Monday?
Have you ever received gifts that are symbolic to you of the love, thoughtfulness, friendship, and so on behind them?
May your Mondays be Magnificent!
