i have taken the day off from work today. as i sit here on the kitchen table making plans and checklists for my upcoming wedding, i reminisce about how it all started: how some seemingly random event (me switching cell phone numbers and texting all my friends and acquaintances informing them of the number change) could have led up to all this. God is sometimes funny (and wonderful) like that 🙂
1.i am grateful for the capacity to express myself through the “printed” word and the freedom to do so.
2. i am grateful for sweet summer rainshowers that lift up the soul and energize the spirit.
3. i thank God for the gift of nephews and nieces who remind me that joy can be found even in the simplest of things.
4. i am thankful for a God of second and third and fourth chances: after so long and after so many wrong turns, i have found the one i want to spend the rest of my life with—a kind, generous, funny man with a good heart.
