I am grateful for:
- The beauty of wood grain
- Un-popcorned ceilings
- Really thin tortilla chips
- Sanitation employees who clean up disgusting in restrooms
- One more day of work this week, or, a three-day weekend
- The ability to sightread music and opportunities to play the piano for three choirs
Beauty in wood grain is a lot like the beauty of a leaf or the beauty of a naked tree or the beauty of a snowflake under a magnifying glass. Intricate and unique and meant to be noticed.
Un-popcorned ceilings are easy to accomplish and make a big difference in updating a space. Messy, yes. Difficult to do, no.
Really thin tortilla chips are extra crispy and that just means better.
Flannel is comfort and everyone needs comfort.
I know I have a tendency to OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder-iate) when it comes to public restrooms, but there is a beautiful lady who travels with a large cleaning cart all the day long and she deserves jewels in her crown today for cleaning up the worst in the men’s restroom. Bless her, Jesus.
Looking forward to a Geri weekend in Oklahoma. It has been too long since I could celebrate her birthday with her, and I am grateful for the anticipation!
I didn’t even have to ask permission to plan it, either. Planned it, reserved it, and saved for it. Independence is a good thing.
A decade and a half of piano lessons, a God-given gift, and years of experience earned me the joy of accepting opportunities to play for choirs at church. It used to be easier when I didn’t have to wear glasses and could hear better out of my right ear, but I will accept until no longer wanted or needed.
