a fall

last night devin came to me and said,
'i need to tell you something before you find out from someone else'.
of course i was freaking out on the inside.
'i fell off the roof today'.
so this shouldn't be too big of a deal - he was alive and well.
but it's something i've dreaded ever since he started this job.
it pays really great money and he really actually enjoys it -
and it is OUR business afterall.
we expect other peoples children/husbands/fathers to do it.
i am so thankful that he was kept from serious injury,
and i'm glad he sees God's hand in his safety -
but i think it's time to start filling out university applications
and get back to the plan of study and all those 'safe' little classrooms.

a pain

darn - i've been having some shoulder pain.
the other night i got the bright idea that i needed another knitting project.
i've always wanted to do some felted stockings for everyone for Christmas.
so i had the perfect wool and i just went for it.
quite often i don't finish things i start - but this time i was determined -
i WILL finish this by hook or by crook - BEFORE Christmas.
next day - shoulder pain - i can hardly lift my arm - how sad and sorry is that?
i will finish it though - i still have 29 more days.

a memory

today i am making peanut butter cookies in memory of my dad
he died 22 years ago today.
i asked myself
why i choose to do this on the anniversary of his death
instead of his birthday...
or my birthday.

and i just can't come up with a valid answer  
except that
i am just celebrating - that i knew him - and he loved me. 
and this is the day 
that i think of him the most.

a gift

yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift - that is why it is called 'the present'.
yeah, it's from 'kung fu panda'. but even i can find inspiration from an animated childrens movie.
i want to treat each day with thankfulness.
thankful for breath,
and home,
and family,
each day
as a gift.
(snagged the photo from flickr - is that allowed?)

a new thing

ps. the photo above is an old postcard i have put in my 'studio' for inspiration - i just love it.
