1. Repeatedly, I am surprised to find that once again it is Friday!
It should be no surprise, right?
After all, I’ve lived 73 years in this cycle of weeks.
Yet, when I start reading folks whose blogs
I admire, BAM! Here it is…Friday!
2. I had four very pleasant emails to open on Monday-
four ebooks that had been on my Amazon Wish List
for my Kindle,
thanks to two granddaughters and their significant guys.
3. The temperature in our Hoosier state
topped out yesterday at 32F.
A veritable heat wave
compared to subzero temperatures
we’ve endured this month.
4. I was treated to a movie this week, “Monuments Men.”
It’s based on a true event from WWII,
an inspiring story about the world’s great art
being rescued from the Nazis.
It’s worth wandering out from a cozy hearth to see.
5. Being Valentine’s Day, I’m thinking of the amazing insight
my then 19 year old granddaughter had
for my first Valentine’s Day without my husband.
I was totally taken aback
wwen I felt the bottom fall out of my world,
with its being only one month since his death,
yet she knew intuitively
how this day would tear at my heart.
She filled my heart with such gratitude
for her instinct of sending love to me.
This Valentine was sent to Anete, my beloved sister-in-law
from my younger brother when they were in grade school.
Who knew that these two were destined to be sweethearts
and get married?
linking with much pleasure
to Nancy Claeys'
