Oh man. When will the rain be over? Why must it be rainy and humid and gross? Why does it do this on the weekend? Complain, complain.
But we are starting summer off with lots of hydration that will hopefully keep us from drought, and my friend’s dry eyes feel better in wet air. So rain, you can hang out for as long as your are scheduled to.
After that though, Mr. Sun bettah come out to play cause I’ve already got cabin fever.
Yesterday, I got to be a grandkid for the first time in… years. Many of them. I dug in the dirt with my sister, squished spiders and worms, planted bushes, and got mud under my nails. Then we went inside to have grilled cheese and chicken noodle soup. The white bread, american cheese and saltwater with noodles variety. And we split a coke and had iceacream after. It was all delicious, made by and eaten with Granny. And it was just us. No little siblings or little offspring. And all of a sudden, I was a grandkid again, spending the afternoon at Granny’s and Papa’s like I was 12 again. It made my whole week.
Involving outside and perhaps the acquisition of some iced tea and sushi. But now that plan melted due to Abi other people having boring things to do important plans that conflicted with mine. Now there is a magnificent day waiting outside, with no plans. I am still going to wear a sun dress.
Its nice out, the baby is napping, I am about to be cleaner than I am currently, and my free trial of Netflix has revealed Psych, the Office and Pushing Daisies to all be available for streaming during lunch, which will be delicious. Today is good.
Today is March 16th. It marks the hardest year of my life to date. A year full of hard work, dying to self, discouragement and complaining and that overwhelmedicanthandleitanymore feeling. I was reflecting on that. Cause I am a downer. But then I said to myself, “Self. Snap outta it.” And this song happened. And then I remembered (cause I forget sometimes when I am being a downer) that this year was a year full of my biggest blessings. It marked a year of the most intense growth my character has ever seen. It marked a year of intense love like I have never experienced, clinging harder to my Father than ever before, and of and a new kind of joy. Today I needed to redefine what “blessings” are, and I need to praise the Lord and give thanks.
1Bless the LORD, O my soul, And all that is within me, bless His holy name. 2Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits; 3Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases; 4Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and…
Little child is crawling across the floor eating crumbs. I figure, nothing is big enough to choke her, and the likelihood of it being poisonous is rare. So I do not get up to go dig crumb out of her mouth. *sigh*
One has to realize that strength does not come from how well one feels or how rested one is. One must realize that strength can only come from One place, and most certainly not from oneself. That is all.
Except to say that the word “one” now no longer seems like a real word.
Is what outside is doing. I am watching the grass reappear again. Hey winter, ready to call it quits? It’s time to start making me miss you. I can’t miss you if you won’t leave. I know it is February, but early departures make the missing come faster, unlike overstaying your welcome. Just sayin.
Totally agree. Priya Samuel has tons of musical talent, but its what she says that makes her spectacular. There is a lot of music out there that sounds good, but her stuff really is good. Her songs say something. Listen up!
My name is Ruth, but sometimes I am called Mama, Tuba, Mrs. and Poof. I wanted to introduce myself because I find you attractive. Why? You have a tendency to contain Blurbs. I think in Blurbs quite frequently, so I see we have something in common. I am currently in a committed relationship with Blogger. Committed, but sadly, somewhat distanced. We don’t communicate often. I am revealing this weakness to you in confidence, feeling that I can trust you. Please do not abuse this information or use it to your advantage. I am committed I say! But I will, however, keep in touch with you.
