Full of Grace

1.  Awarding the second annual Daphne college scholarship award (now substantially funded by her mother)

While this is a great joy for me, it is also bittersweet when faced with how many truly promising students there are and the only thing holding them back is money.  There has got to be a better way.

2.  That Beanie drove over 4 hours to visit her sister on National Sibling's Day.   They are best friends and I do hope that they will always remain this close.

3.  That Beanie has reported that Peachie's new boyfriend is "so friggin' nice." 

4.  The clear head and great night's sleep that comes after a day of  hard, productive, physical labor.

5.  That all runners and spectators and residents we knew in Boston reported back safe, although understandably quite shaken.   Heartfelt prayers for those who were impacted. 


  1. I want a sister!

    How many steps above "nice" is "so friggin' nice?"

    1. Apparently, quite a few steps above. All reports are coming in absolutely glowing. I think we might get to meet him this weekend.

  2. I agree with Ren! I want a sister, too! And, what great sisters they must be. That is sweet.

    Delighted to hear about the friggin' niceness of the new boyfriend. Fingers crossed!
