In our family there were originally 3 girls. Somehow we came up with a choosing system that we love.
When we get something special – like a bag of Gran’s old scarves we spread everything out and then we go around the circle picking one each until they are all shared.
I guess other people do a similar thing. But we don’t just like our system we like the sense of occasion it brings.
We watch what others pick. We talk.
Today Sister 1 was going through her jewellery and culling. (It comes from our Gran we are a bit magpie-ish). So, we used the system and here is my haul.
This was my first pick. Originally I thought it should say ‘I Love’ and then something. However, as I have thought about this I have decided ‘I Love’ is perfect for me. I do love and loving is what makes my life full of beauty and charm and delight. It is love that gives me joy and meaning. It is love that really matters – everything else is a bonus. Love started the universe and Love will bring us into eternity. Love is everything. ‘I Love’ and because ‘I LOVE’ I am me.
And this is the one Master 4 and I are sharing because he chose it and we both like it!
