Good Day, God!
I’m sitting here virtuously sweating from a brief jog around daughter Sandy and Dave’s neighborhood. Meanwhile, my amazing husband Kit is running UP Sabino Canyon. He’s getting hill training for his Kauai Marathon this September.
I am sitting here full of thoughts, feelings, and food. There is something about us humans that dislikes austerity, God — even though there is little doubt that austerity is better for us. There is nothing like the World War II rationing of fats and sugars to lower the civilian death rate.
Or maybe it is that stress about “real things” — like bombs falling around us — is somehow easier to handle than the stressors conjured up out of our own imaginations? After all, when morning comes and bombs did not fall — or at least didn’t hit our neighborhood — then we are flooded with relief. Ah, but imaginary fears never stop. Hmm. An interesting thought, God.
This isn’t just Kit’s birthday. We are on our way to celebrate Kit’s brother’s 80th birthday with his family. Suzy will be with us and Sandy had planned on going too, until she was accepted at a one month intensive class in ESL teaching. Families and our Families of Friends are so important!
So my heart is full of . . . well, just FULL! Ian wants me to go out to breakfast with him this morning so I will be off to shower in just a few minutes. Before I go, I want to say Thank You.
Thank You for Kit. Thank You for our Families and Friends. And thank You for moments in which I truly know how blessed I am.
