TAILOR MADE THURSDAY
This was a tailor-made day! A beauty, a day with plenty of sunshine, blue skies, and warmer than usual temperatures. Not bad for December 27th.
This kind of day always rejuvenates me, especially after the busyness of Christmas. As I thought about today’s story, two words, tailor-made, kept creeping back into my thoughts. This is going to sound a little silly, but when words or pictures nudge me, I am pretty sure, that a story will follow before the end of the day.
One of the definitions of tailor-made is; made, adapted, or suited for a particular purpose or person. There it was, the foundation of my story. I actually started this piece with a hint of the direction the story would take. Think about today’s weather, and apply it to the definition.
On this day, I had a lunch meeting with two great gals who guide me with my writing and marketing. As I was driving to Perkins for my twelve o’clock meeting, I thought how their knowledge, encouragement, and yes, even their laughter was tailor-made for me. Through, their confidence in me, my stories have become tailor-made for those who read them. Maybe my stories lifted your spirits or my choice of words inspired you to never give up.
As I drove home, I thought about those in the medical field. When you think about it, tailor-made fit them to the “T.” I can honestly say, that I have had a few nurses and doctors that were suited for me. It was if they were hand-picked.
All through the day, and evening, I thought about the people on my path, and how they influenced me, cared about me, and were the wind beneath my wings. I thought about my favorite writers, music, artists, and my book club friends. I even thought about the beautiful town I live in. They were all tailor-made for me, too.
Once again, my heart knows who was the original tailor-made; God. He created, adapted, and made, everything on my path. A beautiful path with its twists and turns, and ups and downs. A path that leads me on many adventures in life.
He tailor-made my heart and your heart too. He sends those who have a purpose in our lives; whether to teach or be taught. One more thing, I believe that every one of us regardless of our imperfections is tailor-made. (That is a given)
So, think about everything in your day, the people you know and love, and the people you meet. Think about the music you hear or how a piece of art touches your heart. Then think about the books you have read and the way the words made you feel. I hope you will agree that the answers for each question were tailor-made for you.
