You call it chaos…

I purchased a sign from Kirkland’s online that spoke to me.  Not the same way as the things speak to shoppers in the Pier 1 ads, but the same in theory.  When I see something that resonates with who I am, I buy it.  Well, that isn’t 100% true.  A convertible Mercedes resonates with who I am, but doesn’t resonate with what I make – hence, I don’t always buy everything that resonates with who I am.

The point was the sign from Kirkland’s online – it resonated and as such I purchased it.  It arrived today with a few other items that resonated.  I must digress ever so briefly though to say that Kirkland’s has the best product protection packaging for shipping I have ever seen (and note, I shop online a lot).  If you ever have to ship heirloom china around the world you want Kirkland’s to do the shipping for you.

But back to the sign – here it is.

Oh, yes…this sign was made for me and the crazy group of people I call family.  When I saw it I was tickled pink – well, not literally, as being tickled pink does not sound pleasant.  Perhaps it is better to say I was very pleased.  I was pleased that someone out there understood that there is beauty in the chaotic elements a family can possess.  I felt validated and supported by the sentiment.  As I said, it spoke to me.

I am on a purge cycle in my life presently.  The only things that get to stick around are the things I need and the things that mean something special to me.  This new sign means something to me.  It serves as a reminder to all that we embrace our nutty, loud, rambunctious clan…and, that we are not alone in appreciating such a family unit.  Clearly, there are others like us, after all – we have a sign.  ;-)

Day one thousand two hundred and eighty-five of the new forty – obla di obla da

I teach at NDSU...but I remain a student of life with all the enthusiasm that entails. My favorite saying is, "Sometimes you have to take the leap and build your wings on the way down." In the new forty that is what I am doing...building my wings.

    Yes, Virginia, there are a lot of us Chaotics out here who wouldn’t have it any other way. Good to know that we have been officially celebrated with such a dandy sign :D
