"Sometimes, I need only to stand wherever I am to be blessed."
I just returned from a lengthy afternoon walk with my mamma and two dogs and I can feel my fingers tingling as they warm up. Today I pulled out an ancient Breckenridge hoodie as we set out and of course my converse were the only shoes that seemed logical to wear… I just realized that I've had them for three and a half years, but they're still going strong. "Today is a good day," I thought, as we walked briskly in this cold February air. "This is going to be a good year, I just know it. It's going to be a great summer." Although some days I'm just dying to get out of the house, I really do love where I am right now.
Today brought a 6:45 wake-up call and shower. Some time in the Word. Oatmeal + berries for breakfast. Mid-morning tea. Literature and a photo break in the reading room. A bit of time on the piano. Dreaming of a baby grand. Chuckles over Jane Austen's wit. Zeal for the future. Hope for some warm weather. Knowledge of no warm weather anytime soon. Joy.
A lovely evening to you.
p.s. All of your comments on my last post were buckets of sunshine! I can't tell you how much you all made my day; it was so fun getting to know more about about you. So thank you, Hannah, Noni, Natalie, Jessica, Jianine, Olivia, Marianne, Michelle Marie, Sonya, and Acacia! Y'all seriously are the best. Perhaps I'll write a post sometime with letters to each of you… should I? :)
