Rant Reprieve

I have been a grump. I wrote a post that I deleted before publishing. It felt good to put it in writing but decided it didn't need to be read by the world.
Yesterday in my grumpy non-productive state I went on a rant to Jeff about all things pottery business-wise that was bugging me. While he patiently listened, a FEDEX delivery arrived. Jeff accepted the package (which I thought was LED bulbs) and he said, "Hey, this is for you!". I hadn't ordered anything so I didn't have a clue what it could be.
It was from a facebook friend named Michele. A virtual potter friend that I have never met.

Inside the box was this sweet little pig!!

She purchased one of my piggy banks this winter and said she really loves him. When she came across this little pig she thought of me and decided to send it as a gift. He is a spirit pig and the card that came with him said that the Spirit Pig can help you attract abundance, fertility, honesty, leadership and protection in your everyday life.

This thoughtful gift stopped my rant dead in it's tracks. It came at the perfect time. Isn't the online world amazing? Thank you Michele, this little pig will have a special place in my home.

It's time for me to move on and get back to work.


  1. omg that is so wonderful, another sweet pig; I have a few rants I have stored up and I believe one of these days I will post about them, but for now I am taking it easy.

  2. Some times it's easier to look at the bad things than the good things but someone will always find a way to stop your down spirit in it's tracks. It's good to have friend both virtual and visitable.

  3. This little piggy went to market, haha!
    I noticed people were cheering me on to rant and be nasty, and it sort of bothered me, so I am trying to mostly keep my blog uplifting and positive. Every nw and then though, it just explodes out of me:)

  4. That pig is the best. How terrific to get a cool present that lifts you out of grump mode.

    I too, write the rants, then delete them. It's a side of me I don't like.

    Enjoy spring!

  5. Hi Meesh,
    I love Gary's comment! How nice to receive a special little piggy in the post just when you needed cheering up!


Don't be shy, talk to me... I won't know your out there if you don't!
