I hope you are safely enjoying the summer sun and staying cool. I almost didn’t this week, but don’t worry! This story has a happy ending. Just a few short days ago, my air conditioning went out twice in the same day, but thankfully we have a wonderful maintenance team here at the complex where I live and I was able to get things patched up in no time. I feel extraordinarily thankful for the fast response, and for the expertise and willingness of our lead maintenance guy to tackle this problem for me in the triple digit heat we’ve been handed this month.
My mom had a health scare this month and spent some time in the hospital. Looking back, it’s hard to deny that we didn’t have a whole lot of Divine Intervention to both get her there in time and arrange for her to recover without worrying about how the bill would be settled. She still has a ways to go to get back on her feet, but as far as things I’m grateful for this month (and all months, really) this one makes the top of my list.
In lighter news, the company I’ve been buying my essential oils from lately had a huge promotion this month. It was filled with five-days-worth of deals where you buy one oil, and you get another one for free. I was able to stock up on supplies I’ve been wanting for very little money and now I’ll be able to create some special blends that I’ve been inspired to make. If all goes well, I hope to be able to set up a shop and share them with you in the future. I really cleaned up with this sale, and I don’t think it was a coincidence that they were all things that I wrote down on a wish list just the week before. It was pretty cool to have things confirmed in that way, that I am actually supposed to be doing this thing that’s been in my heart for years, by literally being given some of very things I needed to get started. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my afternoon testing out some of the recipes I’ve come up with.
How has July gone for you? Do you have anything exciting to share? What kinds of experiences did you have that you’re still holding in your heart? I want to hear from you and help you celebrate this month almost gone by! Leave a comment below and let’s help each other remember all of the wonderful things we have to feel thankful for!
Wishing You Total Well-Being,
