I had planned a post on Links that make me think (as a counterpart to Links that Made me laugh) for today, but it was so depressing I’m going to skip it. I think the heaviness in the world is weighing me down even more than the Pepsi and brownies.
So instead, I’m going to share a few things I’m grateful for today:
:: a day at the Denver Art Museum. We didn’t actually go to any of the galleries; instead, we spent two hours in the hands-on sculpture area. I needed that.
:: visits from 3 dear friends (and children) during the past week, all timed while Sam was away. What a blessing to have some company!
:: that I noticed the laundry rotting in the washer after only one day, instead of two (like last time)
:: yesterday’s run in the pouring rain. I’m especially grateful that it was only sprinkling when I started. Had it been pouring rain (as it did once I got to mile two) I certainly wouldn’t have gone at all. I stopped at one point to take a photo of the water pouring in sheets off a roof, but I was so completely soaked and cold that my finger couldn’t conduct enough to unlock my phone.
:: the warm-air dryers at the rec center that I used to dry my shirt while I waited for the kids to finish swimming. (The little kid next to me thought I was crazy.)
:: girls who do school in costume.
:: boys who love to read on the couch.
:: the preterm baby we delivered last week, that mother and baby are doing well.
:: that Let Us Keep the Feast: Living the Church Year at Home (Complete Collection) (Amazon kindle book or Paperback from Doulos Resources) is available for pre-order. It’s coming out November 1st, just in time for Advent.
What are you especially grateful for today?
