Carnival 2011

Another Carnival season comes to a sad end.  The magic has been dispersed, the beads have been thrown and caught and the glitter and wigs have been put away for now.

Unfortunately I had to sit Mardi Gras day out this year, my RA keeping me on the couch.  No worries,  I 've learned to take pleasure in watching my family revel in the celebration and that brings warmth to my heart and a smile to my face.

I love that my daughter, NoraLeigh has taken after her mama and works weeks in advance on her costume and preperation for the magic of Mardi Gras day, so if I'm not there in body I know I'm there in spirit.  She is so creative and inspired, I like to think perhaps that is a bit of myself rubbing off on her.  She inspires me everyday.

So it's back to work for me, with a renewed inspriation and a touch of Mardi Gras magic to motivate me.

Oh, I hope Joseph is feeling better Amber. I find even if you can't revel in it the magic is still in the air and I gain a lot from that!

I'm sure that your daughter must have inherited some of your "magic"!
I wish that I had some magic that could help you with your pain and suffering...
I send you positive thoughts!
Take care, Cindi

I would love to experience the magic just once. My daughter did this year and loved it! I am so glad she had the opportunity.
