The other day, I was at my grandmother's house and she noticed that my eyes lit up and I smiled when my gaze fell upon this lovely blue antique lamp (pictured in the above photo). She said it made her feel so good to see me smile, and she offered me the lamp. Very lovingly, I accepted.
This lamp does bring a smile to my face every time I see it. I think it is absolutely beautiful, and I'm not one who usually cares either way about antiques. I think the one reason this lamp resonates with me is because I often see the same color blue while in meditation; its presence in my room has a calming effect on me. Not only is the lamp a remebrance of the peacefulness and serenity of meditation, but it is a remembrance of my grandmother's love for me, and my admiration for her.
A big shout out to my grandmother for thinking of my happiness; you are as self-less as they come. Thank you for you in the world.
