Timely News

Yesterday was my eye opener. There are a lot of email chains and Facebook status on being thankful. We delete them. Some read them. We might even post. Yesterday was my eye opener. So much so, I'm repeating that sentence on purpose. For yesterday my love for my husband was laid out before me as we sat in the ER 8 hours finding out his intense pain is a kidney stone. Out of the blue. Intense crippling pain. The man who never complains about his health. Texted and asked if I could come home from work. Yes was my response. Heavy town traffic tested my nerves. Texted him to call 911. I had no details but to come home.

Later in the day the news of a fatal crash in a local mall parking lot and two serious crashes on major local highways snarl traffic for 4 hours. Life will never be the same for so many in the blink of an eye.

Each moment of each day, remember we are all winners. Embrace love. It can be taken in the blink of an eye. Don't blink.

Lap Dog

My dear friend Gully still thinks he is a little puppy. I know what he is going through. I still think I'm in my 20s.

It's Started

Monday night is religious ed night. We practice kindness. We practice the cup song. Last night the students recruited other students in another class to teach the hand cup coordination. They are passing their talent along. In kindness. A simple lesson in which everyone smiles. Looking forward to next Monday night.

PS: Hugs deluxe or otherwise are always free.

Short stacked?

Short yes, but valuable. Representing all the table chip value... I won. I sat there. Looking at the stack. Small in stature but representing a win. Like do many of life's more important circumstances.

It's the little thing that truly matter.

It's A Cup

My girls and I spent the weekend in Boston. Starbucks was a staple. The shop was next door to our hotel. We noticed the new cup. I love the red. It's just a cup.

I have always...

I have always wanted to spend the weekend in Boston. The city, where the driving scares me. But the bright lights are intriguing. Twenty miles away. Took over an hour and 20 minutes to drive. Valet parked. Checked in. We walked to the public market and then to dinner. Swung on the Rose Kennedy Greenway public bench swings. I've always wanted to experience this place. To stay at this hotel. It's so different from our normal life.
