Here’s five of this week’s many blessings:
Rain. The nine o’clock sky is illuminated tonight…huge thunderstorm in progress. We need the rain. I’m thankful to be inside, to have a garage for the dogs to take refuge in, and for the milder temperatures this summer. My daddy loved to watch lightning. I’m glad for his memory tonight.
Nature. A swallowtail fluttering back and forth on my evening walk with my daughter tonight, fireflies last night, hummingbirds darting every day.
Teachers. I’m passing on many teaching materials to many friends…and to my son. He came to my classroom today and took several loads of materials to his new classroom across town. Thankful for the blessing of his new job. Some friends are helping me get my room ready for the coming year…huge help.
Projects. I’m really thankful for the day’s to do list. There’s a quilt in progress, several scarves, an etsy shop name on the front burner. These are diversions, but necessary ones.
Prayer. Rosaries, candles flickering in churches far and near, novenas. The power of prayer. I count on it.
Have a great week, dear readers.
Keep looking up.
