Even The Small Things Are Great

Welcome to Colleen’s Corner. This is a column meant for fun and some information About myself: I am Colleen Fielding, a Freelance Photographer you often see me on the side of the road  or in various places taking photos of different things animals, birds, places, people etc.  l have lived in Lumby just over 8 years,you have seen my photos in the newspaper (Lumby Valley Times) and once in awhile in the Vernon Morning Star, and the Lumby Art Gallery. Photography is my passion. Disclaimer:  The information on some of my photos that I write about a lot of times come from the Internet or books I research them, hopefully the facts are as close to the truth as I can come.

Saturday was a pretty busy day for all of us at the market, but it was a wonderful day.

At one point I got a cramp in my leg, it wasn’t too harsh just enough to let me know it was there. 

So it made me feel a little down, and at that point one of my vendors came up to me and handed me a clip board that he had made for me. It was awesome, and it made me forget about the cramp in my leg, it was a small gift, but it was great. 

I had told you about this vendor before he and his partner Renee were vendor of the week just a little while ago.

Kodiak is his name, and he does beautiful creations on wood. One day when he was at the market he had a really cool little sign with a picture that he had put into wood, it looked like baby Yoda ( you know from the movies.) I loved it, but of course it sold pretty fast as it was so cute.

On my clipboard that Kodiak had surprised me with was my title of Colleen’s Corner then a picture of the baby Yoda, wow I just love it! It is Great Thank You Kodiak

On Sunday we went to buy our water, walking past us was a man and his daughter. He stopped and chatted with us for a minute, his young daughter had a beautiful Sunflower in her hair. I told her how beautiful it was, she then gave me a lovely little red flower, for my hair ( I put it on the top of the clipboard to take a picture of it, for the column) I asked her what her name was, she said “Julie” I told her my name. Then her dad and Julie went on their way. 

The flower the little girl gave me was a small surprise, but it made me feel good. Thank You Julie.

It just goes to show you how small things can be great.

They can give you feelings of happiness in a world that is full of stress right now, with all the fires, evacuations, smoke, etc. 

And it reminds me to be grateful, for things I have and for those around me.
