Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows for Cobs with๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’

What I love about this WordPress blog world is that you get to meet some lovely people.ย  One special person is Cobs from The Cobweborium Emporium.ย  Although we live at opposite ends of this wonderful planet called Earth we can communicate through the atmosphere and share thoughts and laughter and sorrows and joys.ย  We will never meet in person but does that matter?ย  I don’t think so.ย  Somehow you connect with people purely by the way they think and write.

Cobs is an amazingly talented artist in many ways.ย  I would love to be able to purchase some of her creations but they are very fragile and she tells me the cost through her postal service is too prohibitive so she doesn’t mail outside her own country.ย  I’m the loser here as she has some really lovely cards and fairy/gnome creations.ย  Go and have a look at her cards Begin Each Day with Twitchy Whiskers and Start Each Day with a Waggy Tail,ย just for example.

During an interaction with another follower, Cobs mentioned something called The Spoon Theory.ย  I Googled it and found that it was a way of explaining how people living with chronic pain/illness/whatever can explain what their life is like.ย  Having lived with back pain for more years than I really want to think about, I have finally found a way to explain how each moment of each day is a decision on what you are physically able to accomplish.ย  I try to not let back pain define me and I try to defy it every day but it’s something that can’t be explained to a “well” person.ย  There are certainly many days when I’ve “used up” all my spoons but there are also “good days” when I have some in reserve for those “not so good” days.

Today, in my world, the sun is shining, the birds are singing, the bees are busy pollinating our fruit tree blossom and I have an almost full hand of spoons so life is looking pretty good.

Here are some morning photos from the garden … sunshine, bees in blossom, flowers blooming, all is right with my world.

Wishing you all, and especially Cobs, a happy, sun shiny day filled with love and laughter ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Ž

  1. Dearest Kay.
    My eyes were as wide as saucers when I read the title of this post, then I began to read while the music from the video was playing in the background, and was touched to the heart of me and, I’ll freely admit, had a tear or two.

    Like you, I love Blogland for the way it allows people to talk to each other in a combination of like: a pen pal; a friend met in the coffee shop; as if on the phone – with a slight delay; and simply as friends. We get to ‘meet’ in the ether, and it’s this bit of magical computery wizardry which, for me, is filled with wonder, joy and love.

    It’s a truly wonderful thing, isn’t it Kay?

    I love that The Spoons have helped you to explain something which causes you so much pain, distress and difficulties, and that your husband now ‘gets it’. It’s such a simple thing too. Nothing complicated about it. Just so easy to understand. I’m just tickled to the heart of me that you did it. PERFECT.

    LOVE your photographs of your garden. Don’t you love it when the changes in the seasons and nature can send you a smile by way of a flower bursting into life; an insect sniffing out something they find delicious; or the unfurling of a leaf? I call them ‘Postcards from Heaven’, for that’s what they feel like to me.

    We are sent many Postcards from Heaven every single day, but sometimes we just don’t notice them. Oh look …. there’s another thing I should blog about! LOL. Along with a post about the Spoons.

    Thank you so much for this fabulous post Kay. I’m humbled that I had a part in something which is already working for you, and truly touched that you should think of making a blog post dedicated to me. Thank you my wonderful blogging friend.

    May God bless and keep you, and may you have a lovely rest of your day, – and a joyous and contented weekend.
    Sending much love ~ Cobs. xxx
