T'anks, Gang! Just wanted to be "seen" and heard...:)
Try this one on:
It is love that fashions us into the fullness of our being-
not our looks, not our work, not our wants, not our achievements, not our parents, not our status, not our dreams.
These are all the fodder and the filler, the navigating fuels of our lives;
but it is love: who we love, how we love, why we love, and
that we love which ultimately shapes us.
It is love, before all and after all, in the beginning and in the end, that creates us.
Today, remembering this, let yourself acknowledge and remember the moments, events, and people who bring you, even momentarily, into a true experience of love,
and allow the rest, the inescapable mundanities of life, like a cloud, to very quietly drift away.----Daphne Rose Kingma

Good day yesterday. Am on a Visiting Accreditation team for a school down in Auburn. It was a full day and an informative one. I have homework-which is good for this active mind when it is dark and rainy outside and dark and Raney inside.
Mary J. and I had a lovely din-din of split pea soup, cheese sandwiches, and then prayer time in front of the fire. There is a conflagration at Shilshole this Friday night and a music/potluck/mini-dance-arama at Gallagher...plan to attend all of the above if my brain cells remain intact and functioning. Until then, I shall off to work and a day with the 3rd and 4th grade lovelies.
And, another one of my wishes came true last night---can't talk about it now, but no,it does not involve a boy, a dog, a cabin, or a kid-that comes later. This holds dear friends closer...really!

    I love the "dark & rainy outside and dark & Raney inside" - that is so true for me. Especially during the winter.

    Nice comment Brother - you quack me up. Ugh.

    XOXO, Maude
