Good Morning, God!
Let’s see. Yesterday. Seven Hours of walking, talking and just a little shopping! How does one process that? Or does one? I am thankful with Time with Daughters!
It was a wonderful gift when Sandy parked her car and came in a talked with me — for almost an hour — when she took me to the airport. Being with — Connecting — Hearing and Being Hear. That is the BEST GIFT.
Now I am enjoying that gift with daughter Suzanne. Beginning each day with coffee tasting — two coffees that Suz prepares and sets before me for me to guess what part of the world they come from. That is so like her Dad! And, I enjoy it. In fact, God, it is almost time for that right now.
But, first, God, I want to share with you the very simple pleasure of asking people about themselves. I have been “connecting” with people. The cause of our WALK yesterday was our need to have the rear brakes changed on Suz’s car. Who knew it would take seven hours and not get done! But, no matter! It started with my noticing the photos of two little boys on our assistant’s cubical. That’s was all it took to hear about how he and his wife had fostered them and adopted them and what a joy they were!
It was heart warming to share his joy. And then, as we moved on down Main Street I chatted with a shop owner from Hawaii who’s husband is an artist — looking at a book of his paintings — and hearing about their house by the stream in Kalihi.
It was a Marvelous Day, God! Mother Daughter “Gatherers” out on a seven hour expedition.
