Full of Grace

1.  Going to vote (school budget) with my youngest daughter.  What a nice feeling to vote together.  And then we walked around the elementary school, sharing memories. For her, they seemed ages ago.  For me, it felt just like yesterday.

2. A bitter cold, rainy, blustery beginning to the Memorial Day weekend allowed me to forego all outdoor chores and just relax.   Watched a movie, read, played piano, watched the white caps on the pool . . .  being a slug for a couple of days . . . it's a beautiful thing.

3.  Having spectacularly impure thoughts.

4. Beanie got a full time summer job in her field of study, and Peachie got an internship with a doctor in the field she would like to pursue.    There may be hope for them when they graduate (fingers crossed).

5.  Today is World Hunger Awareness Day.   For all the times I have been poor, I have never been so poor as to know hunger.   And for that, I am truly grateful.


  1. That had to be the worst Memorial Day weather in memory.

    Yay for the girls, but grad school first, right?

    I am very thankful never to have known hunger too. Half the world is starving while the other half is too fat. There is something wrong there.

  2. I am delighted that your Memorial Day weather was so bad!
