today – solc2018#4

Some days are meant for writing – and others are meant for living, and noticing, and pondering. Then the words come later on.

Today was an “other” day.  A blessed day filled with so many wonderful things.  Good fodder for future stories.  Lots of things to think about.

  • beautiful sunshiney weather after a long season of wet and cold
  • the baptism of our grandson
  • a healthy, well-behaved little one
  • singing How Great Thou Art at church, reminding me of the life and influence of Billy Graham
  • sweet words and hugs from friends
  • the gathering of our small family to celebrate together
  • a visit to a beautiful historic home that’s never been on tour before in our heritage-minded community
  • the funeral of a precious woman, celebrating the home-going of a truly humble servant
  • seeing old friends and mentors, such influential people in the lives of our children and in our lives too
  • a walk through the neighborhood, noticing so many signs of spring

So many things for which to be thankful.  Reflecting on joy.
