Grandmother's rug

Right over there on the wall is one of the many rugs my Grandmother Giltz made. It's colors I realize are the colors of my life. Here's what I mean by that.
Look over there, on the other wall is the picture Jimmie Homberg painted for me some years ago when we were in Utah. She had me choose the colors, with only a little direction from her, and it is wonderful. Then on the floor is a rug from India with the same colors.
And it took putting them in the same room for me to go ...Well ah huh yes, those are the colors of my life. My Grandmother's rug we used on the floor by the door for a long time. Now I treasure it as a tapestry and I realized that those colors on the rug I would play on were infused into my life.
We are influenced by those things and people around us perhaps more than we know. We then need to understand that we have influence on things and people around us too.
So, will that influence be for the good? It is our choice. How we love one another. How we nurture one another. How we make one another laugh.
Good luck today.

God abide
