Have a dressed up day!

Multitude Monday

The sun rises and sets and our days move on with little news from home. 

Gentle days before the attack of computers and the insistance of cell phones are almost so distant it is purposeful to surrender to them.

It is abrupt and not so kind.

And suddenly it is here.  An interruption into the peace of life that is certain for us all, but easier to bear for yourself than the one you love.

But the list continues, because without the list there is surrender of another kind.

the remembrance that wellness is a gift

there is a greatest Healer

knowledge that besets wisdom that besets kindness

the soft gentle rain that waters the plants placed under the eave

rocking chairs

chicks that find a home in the cup of your hand

apple green plastic tumblers

the crispness of a new Sharpie

baby toes keeping me awake

the understanding of a friend that understands why you are different

the cotton turquoise gift from Mama

the joy the new black dress brought her

she goes, so I don't have to

tears shed for other mamas as they watch them go from here to there

and finally . . .

knowing, even when the unknown is hovering

One thousand gifts, # 34-49.

holy experience

Marie, again your writing is so lovely - you are truly a gifted writer :o) The freezer cooking is going well, but I not done (and I'm trying to be okay with that!) In the freezer I have - 2 beef stroganoffs, 2 taco meat, 2 bags cooked ground beef, 1 completed lasagna, 1 completed meatloaf and 1 completed 3 Bean Chili. I still need to do the Chinese Dumplings, Chicken in marinades and pizza dough. This is so much more info than you were probably thinking you would get in a comment!
