If there is one thing Sheebos can do, it’s eh..sitting down when he wakes up?
Okay, we’ll start anew. If there is five things Sheebos can do, it’s wearing glasses, being cool, squashing pillows, guarding the door (yes, he is the first thing you see when you enter, we can recommend this to anyone) and reading stories to younger sheep.
‘Potamotrygorgeous probably means me..’
And when reading is to be done, glasses are to be taken off.
‘And the hoodie too?’
Okay, the hoodie too.
‘You were right Potamotrygorgeous, this one sure makes for a good guardian. By the wave of his hand.’
‘You know.. it’s only because of me sitting next to you that you appear little. If Potamotrygorgeous would have chosen a smaller sheep than you, the whole story would be reversed. You would be the guardian.’
‘Comparison is not the goal in life. Because then you will only be defined by the sheep you are comparing yourself with. And the choice of sheep probably will be very selective.’
Okay. Intervention time.
‘Now my smallness fits me, because my snout fits through the handles! Mäh, mamäh!
‘Potamotrygorgeous, did you really go to Primäh? Because..well.. we’re not sure,.. but we have heard that the clothing sold there is perhaps.. ehh.. how should I say it.. ‘
‘Woah there, now it’s ME who’s intervening, okay? Let’s keep it fresh on a Saturday, bright on a weekend, uplifting on a resting day, and don’t judge the insides of a bag by it’s outside letters, okay?’
And so we were back. Again. In business. And Sheebo was too. In a bag.
One size fits all? Nope. Only small size fits here.
Size matters? Yup.
Gefen? Should that not be ‘given’? It is from Jerusamäh, so perhaps they wrote it wrong?
Since a while we experience the greatness of gifts, once you see the details of it.
* feeling a sparkle (meaning you want to have something)
* looking for it (this can take a long time)
* finding it (and feel your cheeks bulding because of the smile)
* deciding to buy it (do this mindful, the same way you don’t just swallow food)
* paying for it
* waiting for its arrival (like eagerly looking forward to your loved one coming home)
* receiving it (don’t forget to smile to the mailman)
* opening it (slowly)
And when you do open it, indulge greatly! (Make sure Potamotrygorgeous cannot see what you are looking at.)
It’s a green Caterpillar! With a red head! And lots of feet!
For the whole flock, sweetie. So yes, also for you.
But perhaps you should turn the book. Because it is not an ordinary Caterpillar.
It’s a Hebrew one.
And in Hebrew we read from right to left. And therefore open the book on the wrong side.
‘Hihi, you said wrong. Wrong is only a concept that comes into being when you do a comparison, right?’
‘Potamotrygorgeous? You have bought this book for yourself, didn’t you?’
How do you know?
‘Because I know how you love to read. To us..’
