Finding Joy in the Lil’ Things

I try to live my life being observant and open to every experience. I work to be present in the NOW. This attitude has led me toward unbelievable spiritual growth, and sometimes I am amazed at where the lessons come from. Today, as I was making my, ‘daily,’ visit to the grocery store, I was reminded of that old saying, “you never know when there is a lesson to be learned.”

There was an elderly lady in the check out line, she was finished with her order and taking her time to put her wallet away, fetch her car keys and leave the cashier with a final greeting. “Have a nice day,” she said with a lovely smile on her face. You could tell that this little outing was one of the highlights of her day. It was a very sweet exchange; however, she had her cart passed the end of her lane and was blocking access to the common path to exit the store.

There was also another lady, also finished with her shopping and not in such a leisurely mood. I watched as she very slowly got aggravated with the elderly woman. This other woman was swaying back and forth trying to get around our happy little shopper, with no avail, and she just seemed trapped. Maybe the old saying is true, and maybe she was put into that situation to learn the art of patience, or maybe compassion.

I stood back and watched all this with a smile on my face. It brought me back to when my mother was alive and the many trips we took to the grocery store. Oh! How she loved going! I don’t know why she loved it so much, but she made it a production every time I took her. With her list and a pen to mark everything off, she tended to her job like a pro! She spent a lot of time in the grocery store in all those years of raising 10 kids and having a husband to take care of. She has a system and it served her well– even if now she was only shopping for herself. Yet, I never rushed her, because it was something that she loved and it brought me joy to see her filled with such happiness.

I miss having to take her to the grocery store and miss talking with her. I just miss my mom…

As we go about life everyday, sometimes we rush or get irritated that people don’t move as fast as we think they should. Maybe we get upset when we feel someone is in our path or they just seem to bother us for no apparent reason, we need to reflect more on them and not us.

Are we living and enjoying life’s every moment or are we just rushing and thinking about the next thing we need to accomplish? If we are lucky, we too will be elderly one day, and hopefully others will be compassionate and patient with us.

Another old saying seems applicable here, “don’t judge someone until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.” What you think is bothersome and just a chore that needs to be completed, could be the highlight in someone else’s day! You may not ruin someone else’s happy with your impatience.

Live and Let Live!

The Philadelphia Wings!

Written By ..  Alexandra Berry
The lights! The Sounds! The Lacrosse! You could practically taste the excitement as the Philadelphia Wings lost their home opener 12-11 to the Buffalo Bandits in overtime.  Ecstatic fans were everywhere you looked, and I was lucky enough to be one of them!
My seats were fantastic! I could see every play, every hit and every goal!  As a matter of fact, I was so close to the action, I was practically on the turf. I felt like I  was on the bench with the team.
The Philadelphia Wings made sure to make the intense game a family friendly experience in many ways.  Every break in the game  held a way to get the fans even more involved. There were free give-a-ways, young lacrosse players showing off their skills, and there was even a hot dog eating contest.  Literally, there was something for everyone in the family to enjoy!
I encourage anyone to go see a Philadelphia Wings game! It’s not just an incredible game of lacrosse, but a one-of-a-kind experience.

Disney on Ice: Let’s Celebrate

I had the pleasure of escorting three lovely little princesses to the opening night performance of Disney on Ice: Let’s Celebrate and once again, Disney really delivers.

The show started off with a warm welcome, Be Our Guest by Lumiere, and featured a wide cast of characters from Cinderella, Alladin, The Little Mermaid, Snow White, Alice and Wonderland and many more.  Of course, the usual hosts of the show, Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Daisy were on hand to lead us on our night full of flawless skating and entertaining adventures celebrating each of the special days.

If you fancy the evil villains in any of the Disney movies, you won’t be disappointed with the next act featuring some of the most famous “bad guys”.  Shouts of “I love you Pumpkin King” and “Cruella is awesome” could be heard throughout the arena following the entrance of each of the famous villains.

Next up is a lesson is love for Minnie who gets a visit from her own fairy godmother.  And who better to help Minnie on her quest to find true love than the most beloved princesses of all time; Jasmin, Ariel, Belle, Cinderalla, Tiana and Snow White.

Lilo and Stitch are H-O-T as the ice is lit on fire and hula dancers glide effortlessly over the ice while Goofy surfs his way into the audience.

Wizard Mickey works his magic with his brooms to clean up the ice and invites you to join him on exotic adventures to Hawaii, Brazil, Japan, China and back to New Orleans as he tries to figure out how to use his magical travelling machine.

The show wouldn’t be complete without celebrating Christmas and having a special visit from the jolly old fellow himself, Santa Goofy!

Judging from the smiles and trance-like eyes of my little princesses throughout the entire 2 hours, it is safe to say this show is nothing short of spectacular. The entire show features some jaw dropping moves by the talented ice skaters and incredible special effects for all to enjoy.

It was hard to pick my favorite part of the show, but with tickets starting at just $18 and seats still available for most shows, you still have time to go and pick your own favorite.

Visit Disney on Ice for show times and ticket availability.
