JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 272 :: happy

1 Oct

{trust}  

I laughed a lot today. At a doctor’s appointment no less. I had my annual exam and pap smear, which I find to be the funniest word ever. Smear. Like it’s some sort of topping for toast. It isn’t, by the way, in case you have never had one.  

Right before the pap smear ensued I was asked to dress down and don the fabled paper gown. So I did, except for my bra, because you know, the girls are fake so it doesn’t matter anymore. I guess I forgot to tell my new doctor this because when she started my annual exam she opened up my gown and frowned at me. “Why are you wearing your bra?” 

I looked at her and laughed. “Oh, I forgot to tell you, these are fake.” 

She laughed. I laughed even harder.
Then she said, “You’re right, don’t need to examine those.” 

As we laughed even harder I realized that I forgot to tell her something else. Two night ago I did a body scrub made with Turmeric which turned the bathtub and my toes and fingers temporarily yellow. As I explained this to my new doctor I warned her that I may have other skin parts that were yellow from it too, so not to be alarmed. 

She laughed again.  
I laughed all the way through the procedure. 
She called me “Tumeric Toes.”
And then we laughed some more. 

I have never had more fun at a doctor’s office. Or laughed harder. Which is a welcome change in my life and truly underscores the theory that laughter is the best medicine. 

And, joy is a simple thing. A very powerful, simple thing. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 238 :: giving trust

26 Aug

{trust}  

Ah, Monday. Here you are again. In this year of TRUST you have me thinking about giving. What is giving? What is giving too much? What is giving too little? What is giving enough?

I have learned the fine art of giving every day, every night really, for almost nine years now because I show up right here on this little blog. I give of my thoughts and words and sometimes wisdom and sometimes laughter, and sometimes fear. I give of myself. I oftentimes wonder if it is a funny little side gig or a worthy cause? Is it giving too much, or too little? Just right?

So you have led me here: showing up.

Showing up is truly giving, and trusting that the gift will be received. I have heard from so many of you who read this blog or see the little pictures on social media that the message (or gift) was received. It warms my heart.

Blogging is not for the faint of heart or minds. I will continue to show up here because it is a gift, to you and honestly to me. Each night I trust that I will show up, so I do. So there it is – trust.

The question is where are you showing up? Know whatever the answer is, it is a gift. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.
Jamie
