For Today. . . Wednesday, June 26, 2013
Outside my window. . . a beautiful summer day. Luke was washing his truck, and Abby and I sat outside under the maple tree watching him. Blue skies, light breeze, just a perfect day.
I am thinking. . . that today is my brother-in-law's birthday. Happy Birthday, Mike!
I am thankful. . . that Dan has found a job that he really enjoys. And that it is close to home and requires NO travel!
In the kitchen. . . menu for tonight:
French Dip sandwiches
Sweet potato fries
Popsicles for dessert
I am wearing. . .shorts, tank top and flip-flops.
I am creating. . . a letter to a friend.
I am going. . . to the library this afternoon.
I am reading. . . The Bride's House by Sandra Dallas
I am praying. . . for a speedy recovery for my mother-in-law.
I am looking forward to. . .going to a wine and cheese tasting with some friends this weekend.
I am hearing. . . Tim McGraw, Don't Take the Girl
I am learning. . . that some lessons are NEVER over.
Around the house. . . we are enjoying suppers on the back porch and letting go of projects for the summer.
A favorite quote for today. . .
" True generosity is acting on the truth -- not on the feeling -- that those I am asked to forgive are 'kinfolk,' and belong to my family. And whenever I act this way, that truth will become more visible to me. Generosity creates the family it believes in." ~~Henri Nouwen
Some of my favorite things. . . discussing books, Snapple iced tea lemonade, the soundtrack from "Cider House Rules."
A peek into my day. . .
