Title: Oh, Sheila!
Sheila seemed to spend money foolishly.
I’d shake my head and grumpily whisper, “Oh Sheila.”
Years passed and a veil lifted from my eyes.
Sheila wasn’t spending, she was investing: planting seeds and bringing beauty to the world.
Recently, she hired a local artist to transform an old tree stump. After learning she hired a lapidary artist who was unemployed for a year, I could understand why she kept asking him to add a few more carvings.
The artist hummed as he joyfully packed his materials and left with a hefty check.
My heart smiled and I whispered, “Oh Sheila!”
Have you invested in an artist lately? (local artist, author, photographer, musician, etc. )
Maybe it is time to do so…. (Sheila would want you to).
P.S. This fiction has nothing to do with the 1985 hit single “Oh Sheila” (here) but it is playing in my mind, “Oh…. oh, Sheila”
