Is there some sugar in your box?



Some boxes are mine, some boxes are yours. But what do you do or say, when the box to unpack is ours. Do you secretly unpack it, while no one is watching or do you wait for the perfect moment to unpack ... all the memories the box may hold when the gathering is just right. 

I am blessed to have a very large and close family and due to the nature of family ties, this year in order to survive and thrive I came up with this little box theory.....

We each have our own box to pack it all in and it's up to each of us as individuals to unpack this very same box ... this box theory dawn on me after my sister dropped off some of her boxes for me to store in my garage, I soon discover one of her boxes held a 5lb bag of sugar, and I sadly realized there was no possible way for me to know that sugar was in my sister's box.

So on Thanksgiving as a family we unpack our parents box. The box that held the marriage certificate, the box that held the birth cards, the box that held the passports, the box that held the photographs and the box that held the videos, some seen and some ... never seen.

Like the videos of our Dad teaching at Auto Diesel College. We watch videos of a dinner, our Grandmother, touring our parents dream home and we watched our children ... watch ... all twelve of them ... all of us at one time watching ... the power of video.

What about your box? Do you need to unpack or pack? Is the storage of your box delaying a blessing?

  $5 Inspired Studios Magazine is here! Inspirations come and Inspirations go, then inspirations linger in our spirit, untouchable, by the outside world and we press on. Others call us crazy, but we press on. We ourselves, understand it not ... but we press on. Inspired Studios Magazine; shares stories of pressing on in our visions, that none can see.  I have a theory, about GOD, abundance and the gift of inspiration, it goes something like this ... GOD passes out inspiration, like Santa throwing candy at a Christmas Parade. Some children run, and grab the sweet stuff, eat it, before a parent can say no. Some, stand on the sidewalk wishing, they had the courage to step off the curb and grab it. And, then, there are the children, who quietly grab, themselves some candy, slip it, into their pockets, planning to unwrap it later, when they can  enjoy it's sweetness, it's flavor and it's bite. A Facebook post  this past Spring, led me to Seth Godin's post about the fut
