Good Morning, God!
The rain held off last night and we had a lovely “family dinner” up at the OCC. It was really a Stanford Club function, but we — plus Kit’s brother, RC, and Larie and Martha Lee — had our own table. Martha Lee has been family since she was a neighbor of Kit’s when they were little kids. Thank YOU, God! Thank YOU for friends that have BECOME family — and for family that have become friends.
Connections are so important, God! Hearing one another — and being heard — that is the BEST of gifts. Accepting one another, accepting ourselves, as we ARE. Oddly enough, acceptance of what IS maybe well be where CHANGE begins.
And now I am yawning, God. I have gotten up early to have a few minutes with You. Mostly, I just wanted to say THANK YOU. Now the sound of the rain is lulling me back into sleep. I shall return to bed for a bit more sleep and then arise — rejoicing at a New Day. Thankful for family. Thankful for Friends. THANKFUL!
