How akward is only having 9 items to choose from for a story line?...but here goes!
Pictured above are a few of my favourite things that inspire, awaken and protect me everyday and/or just making life more enjoyable.
Starting from bottom right is my my Adidas cap that protects me from the elements, why Adidas and Die Drei Streifen? - because I am German born? No because in this world you are either Adidas or Nike and I've always preferred it. Next is my iPod which fills my heart and mind with all of the different sounds I love including Gospel, Classical , Jazz and Rock on my treadmill or getting my daily vitamin D dose weather permitting. Next is my beautiful, beaded, Cross book mark from Koorong bookstore in Brisbane, that most recently and oh so briefly held my page of The Narnia Code about C. S. (...which stand for Clive Staples by the way), Lewis which I read in under a week.
My musical key covered pencil for making important changes at choir or on sheet music that I am trying to learn and decipher, my Jurlique skin balancing face oil that like most of their products makes me glow and stirs my senses first thing in the morning, a pot of Monk's Pear tea that is made with Black tea (to kickstart my day) consisting of; Bergamot, Lavender, Dried Pear and Jasmine Flowers - it's crazy but I like tea in the morning but Decafinated, Organic coffee in the afternoon, my incredibly practical tea-one-cup strainer of which I bought 2 of, for my sister Birgitta and I years ago also in Brisbane (where I lived for most of my life until 4 years ago).
Sweetened by my no calorie, Organic, Austalian made Stevia which is a plant extract that I have a supply stash of every where, and last but not least a unique seashell (this one from Seven Mile Beach) of my many hundreds seashells, collected whilst walking along beautiful Australian beaches with my husband Paul or dear friends in God's Creation. It's those moments that I relive when I see it/them and choose to remember and surround myself with daily all of which make me who I am and that I am Blessed.
